University of Zurich, Medical Faculty
With the clearly defined structure of its courses of study, the Faculty of Medicine provides a high-quality, internationally compatible education. It was one of the first medical schools in Europe to implement the Bologna model.
The University of Zurich is a member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU), a consortium of the leading research universities in Europe. The LERU works primarily to support basic research. The Faculty of Medicine undergoes regular evaluations of its performance in teaching, research and continuing education.
The University Hospital Zurich (USZ) includes 42 clinics and institutes which are organized in 9 medical fields. It has more than 1 000 beds. Over 30 000 patients are treated as inpatients and 160 000 outpatient consultations are performed annually. Thanks to the proximity to university research, USZ offers its Swiss and foreign patients the latest and best treatment methods. Other university hospitals which are independent of USZ round off the range of medical services offered.
