Foundation: 1890

Mission: Three basic missions are entrusted to the CHUV by the public authorities: - Care: The CHUV provides treatment in all medical specialties, including psychiatry. It meets the needs of the population of the Lausanne conurbation as a hospital of first resort. It is the reference hospital for the canton and a large part of French-speaking Switzerland for patients requiring specialised and ultra-specialised care. It plays a pioneering role at the Swiss and European levels, and even internationally in recognised areas of excellence. The CHUV also carries out community medicine and health missions and supports efforts in the field of prevention and public health. - Training: As a university hospital, the CHUV participates in the pre- and post-graduate education of doctors, nurses and other health professionals, in close collaboration with the Faculty of Biology and Medicine (FBM) of the University of Lausanne (UNIL), academic societies and universities of health. The CHUV also contributes to the training provided by the universities by welcoming students for practical placements and offers apprenticeship places leading to the CFC, AFP or professional maturity. - Research: The CHUV is involved in clinical, translational and fundamental research activities in priority collaboration with UNIL and its Faculty of Biology and Medicine. The CHUV is also developing research partnerships with the EPFL, the universities, Swiss research institutions and other international institutions.

Vision: The four facets of our vision are: to strengthen our academic vocation while ensuring our mission as a regional hospital; to promote centres of excellence and play a leading role in them; to be a privileged training centre for all healthcare professionals; to offer our patients the best adapted and most effective care while respecting their individuality.
