Role

The Medical Commission has two major roles, being the executive body of the College of Associate Physicians on the one hand, and on the other, the consulting body of the Foundation board. 

This Commission meets at least four times a year at the express request of Management or the Foundation board.

The Medical Commission has the following attributes:

 

  • Assess applications from specialists wishing to practice at La Sourcce as accredited doctors, in order to give their opinion to the Foundation board.
  • Discuss issues related to practicing medicine at La Source.
  • Assess cases regarding possible disciplinary measures to be taken against accredited doctors and inform the Foundation board, depending on the case.
  • Appoint doctors to certain educational and/or administrative positions.
  • At the request of the Clinic’s management or the Foundation board, the Commission can be requested to give advice on certain projects regarding La Source. 

 

 
Request for accreditation

Any doctor holding a medical degree and at least the title of specialist in general medicine, FHM, recognised in Switzerland, is entitled to apply for accreditation. The case will initially be studied by the Medical Commission for their opinion and then submitted to the Foundation board who will take the final decision. 

All requests should be sent by post to the Clinic management or emailed to candidaturemedicale@lasource.ch.

Please note that all accredited doctors and surgeons at the Clinique de La Source have their own surgeries in town or on the Clinic premises, and that they practise as independent doctors and thus are entirely responsible for their own acts.
