The Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre (RUNMC) (Dutch: Universitair Medisch Centrum St Radboud), is the teaching hospital affiliated with the Radboud University Nijmegen, in the city of Nijmegen in the eastern-central part of The Netherlands.

The Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre was formed in 1999 by a merger of the Academisch Ziekenhuis Nijmegen (AZN) (Academic Hospital of Nijmegen) and the medical faculty of the Katholieke Universiteit Nijmegen (Catholic University of Nijmegen), now the Radboud University Nijmegen, forming an academic health science centre. Thus, it is a semi-independent medical university and hospital, which is not directly linked to the Radboud University.

It is one of the largest and leading hospitals of The Netherlands, providing supraregional tertiary care for residents of a large part of the eastern section of The Netherlands.

The medical center employs 8840 employees (6639 FT), and offers educational services to 1925 medical students, 505 medical bioscience students, and 447 dentistry students. The medical center has 953 beds.
