The Department of Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy of the Zurich University Hospital (PEU) consists of approximately 140 physiotherapists and occupational
therapists. We are organized into nine specialized teams that provide cross-departmental services
in the clinics of the Zurich University Hospital (USZ). In both inpatient and
outpatient settings we work closely with doctors, nursing staff, and other
We stand for high quality therapeutic services. Our staff continue to further their
education in order to deliver highly skilled services in patient care,
teaching, and research. Our work with patients is based on thorough
examination, specific assessments and evaluation to ensure appropriate
therapeutic interventions. To do so we rely on the available medical evidence to
provide best practice.
We are committed to promoting junior staff development and serve as an
important training site for college students of both professional groups. In
the research and teaching department, therapeutic research is carried out by
both renowned and internationally active researchers.
