The CHUV plays a leading role in the fields of medical care, research, teaching, and training, in collaboration with the Faculty of Biology and Medicine at the University of Lausanne (UNIL). Both these institutions are part of the "Health Valley" around Leman Lake.
With its mission lying at the crossroads between medicine, sciences, and humanities, CHUV offers a personalized approach to patient care. Several national and international collaborations allow us to deliver the best possible care to our patients.
