Bruno Durrer Fellowship

Bruno Durrer – a passionate general practitioner, international pioneer in mountain medicine, enthusiastic alpinist, mountain emergency physician and father – was devoted to supporting young doctors. As a matter of course, he is one of the founders of the Swiss Society in Mountain Medicine and he was a great supporter of education in mountain medicine.

In his honor, we would like to support young doctors from developing countries to participate at the World Congress on Mountain Medicine in Interlaken by offering a “Bruno Durrer Fellowship”.
