The Department of Medicine 3 is one of five clinics for internal medicine at the Universitätsklinikum Erlangen specialized in rheumatology and clinical immunology.

Our clinic offers modern and targeted diagnosis- and therapeutic interventions for the treatment of rheumatological, immunological and allergological diseases.

Our doctors are specialized in the detection and treatment of different bone-, joint- and autoimmune diseases as well as allergological diseases. These often hard to diagnose diseases – require a competence which is reflected in the fact that the Department of Medicine 3, is one of the few European "Centers of Excellence" according to the guidelines of the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR).

In addition to patient care, we focus on research and teaching; from basic research to patient -oriented research. More information on our basic research activities and clinical research can be found on our website under Research.
