The excellence of clinical research in Switzerland, and in particular at the Inselspital (Bern University Hospital), can only be maintained by offering the biomedical scientists of tomorrow the best possible educational opportunities.

Most of the research groups of the department are hosting or hiring master students, PhD-students, MD-PhD-students, and post-doctoral fellows who are integrated in the research projects of the individual groups. PhD-students are generally enrolled in the graduate school of cellular and biomedical sciences of the University of Bern.

This educational task is taken seriously in our department, and we organize progress reports, seminars, and conferences that can be credited by the PhD-students. Furthermore, all group leaders of the department are participating in teaching activities at the University of Bern.
