With its central position in the care offering, one of the roles of the university hospital centre is to transfer know-how. Therefore, HCL plays a vital educational role in the area of medical, pharmaceutical and dentistry studies.

Every year, HCL is involved in training:

  • 1850 students and 750 junior doctors, pharmacists and dentists, as well as future midwives.  As such, Hospices Civils de Lyon works together with the Lyon Est faculty of medicine, the Lyon Sud faculty of medicine and maieutics, the school of dentistry, the school of pharmacy and a technical institute of rehabilitation.
  • 1600 paramedical staff (nurses and specialist nurses, electroradiology technicians, healthcare managers) through eleven schools and institutes.
