CLINICAL MEDICINE: PATIENT ORIENTED
The Clinical Medicine Section consists of reserach groups that mainly focus on patients. Thus clinical research projects are centred around disease and patient care. If each clinical department has its specificity, all direct their research projects towards new therapeutic solutions, improvement of tools for diagnosis, prevention, quality of care and psychosocial-oriented care. Many of these projects are co-led with the Geneva University Hospitals (HUG), the key partner of the Faculty for clinical research. As of January 1st, 2019, the Faculty of Medicine has reshuffled its departments of clinical medicine, in order to reflect the HUG reorganization. Consequently, the number of departments has been reduced from 10 to nine.
