The HUG missions

An institution's missions are its raison d’être.


Geneva University Hospitals meet the healthcare needs of a community of 500,000 people, plus patients from other Swiss regions and abroad.


In collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine and vocational colleges, every year the HUG welcomes 600 doctors and 800 healthcare professionals in training.


Geneva University Hospitals actively contribute to medical progress through high-level research addressing both the medical and nursing disciplines.
