Welcome to the 1st Department of Medicine´s website for international patients!
Making an appointment
If you are from abroad and would like to make an appointment at one of our outpatient clinics, you may call our Aufnahmekoordination (clinical coordination), or contact us by mail or e-mail:
Communicating with doctors and nurses
All of our doctors and most of our nursing staff speak English fluently. Services in other languages may also be available.
If you don´t speak German or English well, please bring a person who can translate for you , or make a request for an interpreter at the time you arrange your appointment or your stay in the hospital.
Translation services are available for more than 30 languages.
Hospital costs for patients from abroad are usually not covered by the German social security system. However, in the case of acute illness, your home health insurance provider may cover your medical bills. Otherwise, you will have to pay for your treatment yourself.
As medical bills tend to amount to large sums of money quickly, we advise you to contact our clinical management department before your stay in the hospital. Our consultants at the clinical management department will help you plan your treatment and your stay in the hospital according to your needs and financial resources.
