is primarily taught at Geneva University Hospitals (HUG) or affiliated institutions. Theoretical and practical courses are integrated into clinical training modules and focus on clinical procedures and on learning and applying skills in a variety of disciplines, such as internal medicine and primary care, paediatrics, surgery, psychiatry or obstetrics and gynaecology. Some disciplines are crosscutting and studied throughout the programme (e.g. radiology, pathology, clinical pharmacology, forensic medicine and ethics). The third year of the Master's programme is devoted to clinical practice during which students do rotations to strengthen their skills and gain experience.
