In 1717, J. Juncker in Halle an der Saale used the hospital of the Francke Foundations for clinical teaching (Collegium clinicum Halense). The Charité in Berlin was founded in 1710, but not until 1727 as a “Lazareth and Hospital” for the state “ Collegium medico-chirurgicum ” founded in 1724 .

In the Federal Republic of Germany , university clinics are usually owned by the respective university, today mostly in the form of a legal entity, on whose supervisory board there are university and state representatives. The non-state-owned university clinics at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum , the city-owned University Clinic Mannheim and the University Clinic Gießen and Marburg, which were privatized in 2006, occupy a special position .
