Welcome to the UKE Athleticum - Center for Athletic Medicine
Dear Patients, Sports Enthusiasts and Athletes,
Welcome to the website of the UKE Athleticum - Center for Athletic Medicine! Thank you for showing an interest in the Center of Excellence for Sport and Exercise Medicine. If you wish to contact us in person or visit our facility, do not hesitate to do so.
The Department for Sport and Exercise Medicine at the Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf opened on April 1 2010. It was initially located in the same building as the Department for General Medicine in Block O57.
At that time the Sport Medicine Center employed a medical director (Dirk Howaldt), two physicians (Dr. Wolfgang Schillings, Daniel Harbs), two sports scientists (Marc Behr, Stefan Patra) and two medical specialists (Geraldine Storm, Iga Magalski) – a total of seven colleagues.
Today the UKE Athleticum (O48) – established as a Center of Excellence for Sport and Exercise Medicine in August 2012 – has a total of 31 physicians, sport scientists, osteopaths, physiotherapists and specialist medical staff (as of November 2015).
