Accreditation of health professions

Basic and advanced training programmes for healthcare professionals require successful accreditation. The quality assurance procedure is based on the provisions of the Medical Professions Act (MedBG/LPMéd) and the Psychology Professions Act (PsyG/LPsy). Accreditation is a tool that helps the organisations responsible improve and develop the basic and advanced training they offer.
