The specialty area gynecology and obstetrics encompasses a multitude of women's health issues from childhood and adolescence through end of life. Knowledge in this field is passed on to trainees and students with a great emphasis on practice-oriented instruction.


Research-led teaching

Further clinical areas have developed out of the three subdisciplines obstetrics, general gynecology and gynecological endocrinology. These include oncology of the genital organs and breast cancer (operative and conservative), prenatal diagnostics and perinatal medicine, urogynecology and laparoscopic gynecological surgery for benign disease and oncology, reproductive medicine with overlap in the areas neonatology and pediatrics, human genetics, pathology and experimental and clinical pharmacology.

The goal of teaching in the specialty area gynecology and obstetrics is not only to convey "special knowledge" of the organs but to highlight the importance of the discipline as the main interface for health and scientific questioning.


Postgraduate training

The wide range of professional development opportunities at the Medical University of Graz is directed at a variety of occupational groups in the fields of medicine, science and research, nursing and health services. Most of the professional development courses can be completed while the participant is regularly employed and provide him/her with a valuable additional qualification.
