The Department of Emergency Medicine is the point of contact for the Viennese rescue organizations and for the Viennese population in medical emergencies. Outside regular ambulance hours, the physicians of the Emergency Department and the consultant physicians of many specialties care for patients arriving by themselves or hospitalized with the ambulance service. The recognition of potentially life-threatening diseases, rapid diagnosis and therapy place high demands on the team of the department. The goals of care are faster subjective well-being, shortening of the individual duration of illness and sick leave for each patient.
In addition, we train students and physicians in the fields of internal medicine, emergency medicine and intensive care medicine and are an internationally recognized research center.
