We train more than 2200 students in human medicine and dentistry. This ranks us as one of the largest medical faculties in Switzerland. What makes our degree programs unique in terms of content is our strong emphasis on practical relevance, our diversity of subjects, and our high level of innovation.
In addition to the pre-clinical institutes and the School of Dental Medicine, the Faculty includes two university hospitals: Inselspital, Bern University Hospital and Universitäre Psychiatrische Dienste (UPD). Close links between basic research, the clinics, and engineering sciences create the optimal conditions for cutting-edge medical research, innovation, and translation. We focus on the real needs of patients and aim to ensure our solutions quickly find their way into practice.
