Are you an MD thinking about an alternative or parallel career path to clinical practice?

MDs beyond clinical practice is a workshop for young MD-PhDs, MDs and senior medical students from UZH and other Swiss universities, interested in extra-clinical careers in research, public health and health care system. It aims to kick-start the Swiss community of young MDs in extra-clinical careers, and provide an opportunity to share ideas, experience and mentoring advice.
