„Knowledge creates cure“ – this is the guiding principle of the medicine at TUM. It represents the very close link between medical research and patient care: here, the patient will benefit as directly as possible from new discoveries by physicians and scientists. The patient needs experienced by physicians in their daily work in turn affect the objectives of research projects. Thus physicians and scientists of Klinikum rechts der Isar and TUM School of Medicine work hand in hand in being able to offer both patients of today and those of tomorrow the best possible help.
With this philosophy, medicine at TUM is internationally successful: Klinikum rechts der Isar and TUM School of Medicine together stand for medicine with a worldwide reputation - in patient care, research and education.
