The aim of the Vaud-Geneva association, which was created in 1993, is to bring about, develop and implement collaboration between the two French-speaking Swiss university hospitals, CHUV and HUG. This encompasses medical activities, teaching, research and healthcare.
The association supports the creation of entities that give concrete shape to this collaboration in the Lake Geneva region and pool the strengths, skills and resources of the two Frenchspeaking Swiss university hospitals.
These joint entities take the form of French-speaking Swiss university centers, units or clinics. Regardless of the entity’s size, its purpose is to offer cutting-edge services to French-speaking Swiss patients and prioritise efficiency while guaranteeing quality of care.
In 2017, the board of directors met five times chaired by CHUV’s managing director, PierreFrançois Leyvraz. As a reminder, the chairmanship alternates annually between the managing directors of the two establishments.
A forum for discussion of operational questions regarding the Vaud-Geneva entities, the executive committee held its first session in April 2017 and has met four times.
The general assembly was held on 22 June 2017 at CHUV.
En 2017, l’Association compte une quinzaine d’entités Vaud-Genève placées sous son égide et d’autres sont en voie de création.
La part majeure de l’activité est réalisée au sein des centers universitaires romands.
