Medical professions

Medical professions requiring university-level study play a key role in providing medical care to the public. For this reason they’re subject to stringent legal regulation governing everything from training to professional practice. In these areas the FOPH works closely with the parties involved, including the universities, professional organisations and cantonal authorities. The FOPH also maintains the register of medical professionals. You’ll find all the relevant information here.  

At the FOPH, you can obtain information about the following medical health professionals:

  • Doctor
  • Dentist
  • Pharmacist
  • Chiropractor
  • Veterinary surgeon

For any questions regarding these professions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Further
