Industry Insight: Visiting Hirslanden Klinic Beau-Site, Bern

The very first of our exclusive Industry Insight events was a great success! Christoph Egger, Rochester-Bern class 9 and Hospital CEO of Hirslanden Klinik Beau-Site, allowed us to cast a glance behind the curtains of the medical world and let us experience the daily challenges of acute-care hospital life. Understanding the delicate balance between public service and private company interests in the health-care industry provided us with the glimpse of the underlying complexity. Diving deeper into the medical side, we got a hands-on idea of the challenges an interventional cardiologist faces when introducing stents into a malfunctioning heart. That delicate, precise and yet surprisingly forceful procedure is supported by modern technology of the highest order. The subsequent visit of an intensive care room and later magnetic resonance tomography imaging system (MRT) showed us how high tech and dedication of highly skilled staff work hand-in-hand. A fantastic apéro riche and a great view across the city of Bern “put the cherry on the top of the cake”. That simply excited everybody…

The idea of Industry Insights is alumni grant access to backstage areas at their respective place of work. A typical characteristic of these events is a selected number of registered visitors. This allows us both to make such events possible exclusivly in more sensitive areas and to have a high satisfaction level of our alumni who snatched a spot. See you next time?
