Umcs are responsible for training healthcare personnel: medical doctors, medical specialists, specialized nurses and medical assistants. This requires intensive cooperation with general hospitals and educational and care institutions in the region. This collaboration takes place in the Training and Education Regions (OORs) and the Hospital Training Fund (FZO) regions. The umcs consider it important that the training capacity is geared to the expected demand for healthcare personnel. We therefore have various programs that increase the (regional) intake and are aimed at retaining healthcare professionals. We also continuously adapt courses to the changing demand for care.
