Our team of nationally established specialists lead by Prof Högler, an internationally recognized expert in endocrinology and osteology, covers a paediatric catchment area of over 2 million people. In Linz, we have paediatrics, neonatology, paediatric cardiology, surgery and intensive care all under one roof, including of course access to the wider services of the Kepler University Hospital and excellent allied health professional support.

Our paediatric outpatient department delivers a multitude of general and many specialized clinics, and accepts referrals from primary and secondary care, as well as inter/national referrals. Our clinics mirrow our academic interests and expertise, in particular in the rare disease field.

We are proud of integrating research into our daily practice. We offer master- and PhD programs, a clinical scientist program and tenure track opportunity to motivated students and clinical researchers. Our research focus has a bedside-to-bench approach and we offer our patients participation in various clinical trials, both investigator-initiated as well as multicentre studies. Our aim is to give as many patients as possible access to clinical research trials testing novel therapies.

The medical faculty of the Johannes Kepler University Linz und the Kepler University Hospital have dedicated themselves to Top-Notch-Medicine and are developing concrete plans for a clinical trial centre.
