Postgraduate training

Swiss Visio Network

The Swiss Visio Montchoisi's type-B centre and Swiss Visio La Providence's type-C centre specialise in the treatment of glaucoma and medical retina conditions, but also deal with all major ophthalmic disciplines, namely cataract, surgical retina conditions, cornea, inflammatory conditions, neuro-ophthalmology, refractive surgery and strabismus.

They also offer contact lens and orthoptics consultations, and an emergency service for ophthalmology and ophthalmic surgery. Furthermore, all doctors at our centres participate in the cantonal on-call programmes set up by the professional associations.

Swiss Visio Network has been operating a clinical research centre since 2016 which allows trainee clinical assistants and directors to play an active role in research programmes. This gives them the opportunity to publish articles in specialist journals. The majority of the research activities are carried out in collaboration with the EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne), the Hamilton Glaucoma Center at the University of California in San Diego (California, USA), the Research Center at the University of Denver (Colorado, USA), and industries linked to ophthalmology in Switzerland and around the world.

Swiss Visio is a network of ophthalmology centres offering state-of-the-art medical technology to treat all eye conditions (excluding eye cancer). It is part of the Swiss Medical Network and provides opportunities to train in the centres of the various cantons.
