7. Academic Medicine Zurich (UMZH) and One Health

UZH is committed to ensuring excellent medical and health care for the public through its research and teaching. We are developing the medicine of the future in close cooperation with our Academic Medicine Zurich (UMZH) partner institutions (University Hospital Zurich, University Children's Hospital Zurich, Balgrist University Hospital, University Hospital of Psychiatry Zurich and ETH Zurich), our partner and teaching hospitals, as well as through the teaching practices of the Faculty of Medicine.

UZH follows the transdisciplinary One Health approach, which adopts a holistic view of the health of humans, animals and ecosystems. All faculties contribute to this approach, since the notion of health covers not only physical but also psychological, social and other aspects, and requires the involvement of all areas of society.
