The University Hospital Centre (CHUV) is easily accessible by metro. The m2 metro line trip from the train station to the CHUV takes only 8 minutes.

Access: try to travel by public transportation!

By car, from the highway, please park at Vennes (Park&Ride) and then take the M2 to the CHUV stop.

“My most important advice [to students] is to be patient. Careers can only be planned to a certain limited degree. Career does not necessarily mean to become “boss”. To develop happiness in the job being done- regardless what job and on what level it is – is part of making a career.”
