Titleimage: Faculty of ​Medicine

The Medical Faculty is one of the largest in Switzerland with about 2,100 students in Bachelor, Master and further education programs (CAS, DAS, MAS). It consists of University clinics and institutes from 3 organizations (University of Bern, University Psychiatric Services UPD and Insel Hospital).

The Medical Faculty actively promotes research and teaching in the area of human medicine and has an important contribution in scientific knowledge transfer and its progress. Furthermore, it is responsible for the education of students as well as for tasks in the area of continuing training and further education of physicians and dentists. Undergraduate teaching at the highest level, practical relevance and intensive support of the students are some of the central tasks of the Medical Faculty. The popularity of our teaching is reflected by the number of medical students enrolled, which has increased continuously in the last decade and is the highest in Switzerland. Beginning in September 2018, we have accepted an additional 100 first-year students. The University Hospitals (Insel Hospital and UPD) as well as the Dental School offer a well-founded theoretical, broadly diversified and practice-oriented study.

In addition, the Faculty of Medicine of Bern provides excellent opportunities for high-quality and future-oriented research. The spectrum extends from basic research in the pre-clinical institutions and the Department of Biomedical Research (DBMR) – which offers all researchers from the clinics of the Insel Hospital and UPD excellent opportunities including infrastructure and technical support – to translational and clinical research. Clinical research by the Clinical Trial Unit (CTU), affiliated to the Departement of Clinical Research (DCR), which is being developed, supports and offers possibility for cooperation in large international trials.
