In addition to the 27 University Clinics, three Clinical Institutes, eight Centers and four Departments also belong to MedUni Vienna. Their focus is partly on individual academic subjects, such as neurology or virology, and in part on all academic divisions, e.g. Anatomy or Medical Statistics.
Clinical Organisational Units
University Departments and Clinical Institutes are among the clinical organisational units. 15 of these Departments and Clinical Institutes are subdivided into Clinical Departments. All Departments, Institutes and Departments also have the function of patient care departments. With the exception of the University Clinic of Dentistry, all clinics are located at the General Hospital. The General Hospital also functions as a clinical center of the Medical University of Vienna.

Non-Clinical Organisational Units
The Medical Theory Division and teaching tasks are organised into eight Centers and five Departments.
