Medical organisation and training in Switzerland.

    This paper aims to report on a successful medical system in a very successful country, politically organized as a federal republic, which put 12 billion Swiss francs in its Health budget in 1980. It also reports on the training of Swiss physicians with special reference to internal medicine and emphasis on their independence. The benefit of close collaboration between the public and the private sector should appear obvious even if this situation might be jeopardized by too many new graduates for fewer patients.
