About the department

The department of internal medicine (gastroenterology, cardiology, pneumology, infectiology and oncology) at Academic Hospital Bundeswehr Berlin offers the patients the highest level of medical treatment expertise with the shortest possible inpatient stay. The department consists of several stations with different treatment focuses. The functional areas of endoscopy and ultrasound diagnostics are attached to the internal outpatient clinic, the laboratory for cardiac, circulatory, and lung function diagnostics, and an angiological laboratory for vascular diagnostics. In addition, the centres have special outpatient clinics. This means that all the essential medical options provide the patients with comprehensive internal care in one house. The department cooperates with specialized resident doctors, the Charité Cardiology Clinic, and the Berlin Center for Travel and Tropical Medicine.

Local experts treat the entire spectrum of diseases in internal medicine with a focus on gastroenterology and nutritional medicine, cardiology, pulmonology and respiratory medicine, angiology, hemostasis, infectious diseases, and tropical medicine. In addition, tumour diseases are treated in an interdisciplinary manner.
