Shaping the future of pediatric medicine

The University Children’s Hospital is an independent institution with a 150-year history of successful pediatric research and an official teaching and research mandate from the University of Zurich. As the largest academic pediatric hospital in Switzerland, we are working tirelessly to translate today’s pediatric research into tomorrow’s standard of care.



The Division of Anesthesiology of the University Children's Hospital Zurich is the largest national and one of the largest European pediatric anaesthesia departments. It treats more than 9000 patients per year from birth to adolescence.

Our research activities are mainly oriented towards relevant problems in everyday anaesthesia and are therefore focused on clinical research. The central questions of our research activities are focused on optimized and safe perioperative patient care.
