The financing of the Paracelsus Medical University is carried out for the most part through private funds. Public funding provided by local and regional government bodies (province and city of Salzburg, Salzburg Regional Authorities Association) currently make up one third of the annual budget. Furthermore, funding is guaranteed through tuition fees and cross financing from research contracts and through net income (e.g. further education courses, etc.). Being a private university, the Paracelsus Medical University is not entitled to funding from the federal government.


Constructive and beneficial partnerships in medical and scientific fields have been established with the Mayo Medical School (USA), Charles University in Prague, the universities of Yale University (USA), University of Milan (Italy), Cambridge University (UK), Capital Medical University Peking (China), University of North Florida (USA), Nurse Anesthesia program as well as the national universities.

A further intensive and longstanding partnership connects the Paracelsus Medical University with the Landeskrankenhaus Salzburg (Salzburg General Hospital) and the Christian Doppler Clinic. When the University was established, the individual clinic´s formerly autonomous departments were integrated to become University Clinic departments. The elevation to "University Clinic of the Paracelsus Medical University" followed in 2007.

In addition, the Paracelsus Medical University is able to make use of a broad-based network of academic teaching hospitals and teaching practices, particularly within the regions of Salzburg and Bavaria.
