Our Vision and Mission

We are UMM.

We base all our actions and intentions on the following guiding principles and objectives which we constantly pursue to put into practice.

These are our goals:

UMM stands for patient centred academic medicine and we live up to this high standard nationally as well as internationally in the treatment of our patients, medical research and teaching.

With our central location in Mannheim we are a major healthcare provider and scientific driving force in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan area. Working in highly qualified, cross-disciplinary teams we treat, investigate, support, care and teach.

Our patients appreciate the individual and holistic attention which they receive from nursing staff and doctors alike even in cases of high end care required for rare and complex diseases.

Mutual respect is the basic tenor of all communication and behaviour at UMM and we see ourselves as equal partners in all internal and external dialogues. Diversity and integration are the basis for cultural sensitivity, acceptance of family needs and serving a common purpose.

Our actions are determined by quality, transparency Basic research and its therapeutic application as well as pioneering medical technology are the sustainable pillars of all areas of medicine as practised by UMM.

We stand for progress and advancement in education and for an innovative teaching concept and we are committed to pursuing higher education and continuing medical training as the foundation for shaping the future.
