10x better – what we offer as employer

As the second-largest employer in Leipzig, it is particularly important to us that our employees feel at home in our organisation. We therefore provide our staff with numerous benefits and exclusive offers.

Better developed

  • Structured familiarisation concept for new employees
    The first day at the University of Leipzig Medical Center begins with an introductory event (EVA) for all new employees. Familiarisation with the new area of work and tasks is supervised by an experienced colleague, using specific orientation documents for a good start and integration into the new team. This means that starting at UKL is made especially easy for you.
  • Management development
    For our managers and those striving to become them we offer specific seminars which, in addition to internal information, cover the development of personality and competences together with networking. 
  • Employer-funded training and further training 
    Quality through qualification – this is the motto of the University of Leipzig Medical Center when it comes to facilitating educational measures for personnel development. Our in-house educational programme comprises over 750 events per year, held either online or in our education centre. All events are adapted continuously to meet the requirements of modern hospital life. The individual development needs of our employees and their future career plans are in focus at all times.
