Our raison d'être

An institution's missions are its raison d’être. The Geneva Act entrusts three key missions to the HUG: 

  • caring: Geneva University Hospitals meet the needs of a community of 500,000 people, plus patients from other Swiss regions and abroad
  • teaching: In collaboration with University of Geneva's Faculty of Medicine and specialized further education colleges, every year the HUG welcomes 600 doctors and 800 healthcare professionals in training
  • researching: working closely with the Faculty of Medicine, Geneva University Hospitals actively contribute to medical progress through high-level research, addressing both medical and nursing disciplines.
