The Department of Internal Medicine I at the Academic Hospital Cologne-Merheim, headed by Prof. Dr. med. Achim Jörres, is an interregional center for internal medicine, specialized in nephrology, dialysis, transplant and intensive care medicine. The key focus is on nephrology: the Department has been the recognized Center of Competence for Kidney Diseases in the Cologne region for decades. There are annually treated 2,500 inpatients and almost a half of them suffer from acute and chronic kidney diseases. 

The Department under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Achim Jörres treats all kidney diseases, including primary diseases, such as various types of glomerulonephritis and secondary ones, such as diabetic nephropathy (both types make up 30% of new detected cases of kidney diseases). The Department is especially focused on the treatment of rare diseases, such as hereditary nephropathy (familial glomerulonephritis with deafness, ADPKD), vasculitis (Goodpasture syndrome, Wegener's disease), SLE and hantavirus nephropathy. The field of dialysis offers all the time-tested types of renal replacement therapy at the most advanced level. Moreover, the Department has an excellent reputation due to the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension.
