Medical Service’s support program

As part of the University’s occupational health care provisions, the Medical Service provides a pre-travel medical examination or consultation session for staff. This addresses such issues as malaria prevention, hygiene and vaccinations. The Medical Service provides you with all the vaccinations you need before traveling. Good to know: It possesses the requisite accreditation as a center for yellow fever vaccination (WHO).

Please note: Preventative measures are obligatory when traveling to the tropics, subtropics and other destinations with extreme climate conditions and high risks of infection.

The Medical Service also offers advice with issues relating to addiction prevention, as well as assistance in finding a therapy. In cooperation with Occupational Health and Safety Services and Environmental Protection, the Medical Service also offers support and advice for the following issues:

  • Returning to work after a longer period of illness (reintegration management (only in German))
