The Bern Lectures in Health Science

The monthly Bern Lectures in Health Science showcase internationally recognized scientists in epidemiology, primary health care and clinical trials and the social dimensions of public health and their current research.

The one-hour lectures are open to the public and are supported by the University of Bern Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine, the Berner Institut für Hausarztmedizin, and the Bern Clinical Trials Unit. At an apéro, after the lecture, speakers and attendees can discuss cutting-edge science with each other in a friendly and intellectually challenging setting that involves scholars from around the world.
