Internal medicine

Internal medicine covers a wide range of different health conditions. Its aim is not only to identify and treat these various conditions, but to prevent them in the first place.

We provide comprehensive care to patients suffering from both common and complex disorders. In many cases, any one illness can affect more than one organ at the same time, which is why we work closely with specialists from a variety of fields.

Teaching and research are a key feature of any university hospital. Here in Basel, we strive to develop and implement the latest advances in these two areas for the benefit of our patients. We play an active role in various research projects, always with the focus on improving treatment methods for our patients.
