The Department of Medicine I at the University Hospital Erlangen specializes in three fields: gastroenterology, pneumology and endocrinology. Other focuses include hepatology, nutritional medicine and internal intensive care medicine. Gastroenterology has been recognized to be the main focus as this field introduced innovations relevant to the whole world. The Department is headed by Prof. Dr. med. Markus F. Neurath.

The field of Gastroenterology at the University Hospital Erlangen introduced important innovations in both endoscopic diagnosis and treatment methods, which currently belong to the standard range of services. Continuous innovative views determine the clinical and research activities of the Department of Medicine I. They are reflected in the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic methods. 

Along with the treatment of diseases of the digestive system and liver, the University Hospital Erlangen comprises the clinical and research aspects of a broad range of internal medicine. The following priorities include lung diseases (including sleep medicine), endocrinology with metabolic disorders, nutrition and diabetology, intensive care medicine, as well as diagnosis and treatment of infectious diseases.

The Department under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Markus F. Neurath offers to its patients both diagnosis and treatment of pneumological clinical pictures at the highest level. The treatment is focused on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and severe asthma, as well as drug therapy for lung cancer.

The Section of Hepatology at the University Hospital Erlangen treats patients with liver and biliary tract diseases. An important aspect of this work is integration of outpatient and inpatient care, as well as an interdisciplinary collaboration with other departments for liver and biliary tract diseases.
