The Radboud university medical center (Dutch: Radboudumc), 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 medical center 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 10,341 employees (7,263 FT), and offers educational services to 2,216 medical students, 552 medical bioscience students, and 443 dentistry students. The medical center has 953 beds.
