Internships and projects for Bachelor and Master students

Internships create a unique opportunity to be confronted to research and clinical issues. At the Department of Hepatology, we offer a variety of possible projects and final theses for bachelor as well as  master level. These  projects can be either purely clinical or laboratory projects  spanning the basic, translational and clinical research. Furthermore, in our outpatient clinic, we offer to one to two students, the possibility to take part in the hepatology consultations, in order to experience Hepatology in everyday clinical life.

In order to learn more about the University of Bern we invite you to the official ranking site of Swiss Universities. Feel free to scroll through all existing comments and reports. Or even even hand in your own evaluation of the University later on by sharing some of your experiences.
