MedUni Vienna's Department of Pathology provides state-of-the-art diagnostics and forms an extremely reliable and indicative basis for clinical treatment, especially in the case of rapidly developing personalized medicine. The Department's scientific activities focus primarily on understanding the causes of diseases. 

As part of their medical degrees and postgraduate training, students are made aware of the potential of pathology, which, as the "science of diseases", forms the basis of patient care in all clinical disciplines.

Experienced specialists from all fields of clinical medicine work at the Department of Pathology. The scientific performance of the Department can be seen on the international stage, making it one of the most renowned pathology departments in Europe. And last but not least, through its now somewhat forgotten function of performing post-mortem examinations, the Department of Pathology makes a key contribution to Quality Assurance in all areas of clinical medicine.
