Welcome to the website of the Swiss Institute of Equine Medicine ISME.
We hope that you enjoy exploring our website!
The Swiss Institute of Equine Medicine ISME attends to horses and other equines in two locations:
The Equine Clinic Bern and the ISME Avenches. Besides doing research and teaching, ISME offers all clinical services to horse owners.
The highly motivated and competent ISME team is looking forward to take professional care of your horse, pony or donkey. The board consists of internationally (American/European boards) and nationally (FVH) accredited specialists in Internal Medicine, Surgery, Reproduction and Equine Sports Medicine.
Our excellent team is complemented by Specialists for Clinical Anesthesiology, Dermatology, Neurology, Radiology and a Clinical Lab.
The Research Institute Agroscope and the Vetsuisse Faculty at the University of Bern have been operating the Swiss Institute of Equine Medicine ISME since January 1, 2012. With this step, the already existing collaboration was intensified and further expanded.
Long lasting collaboration
For quite some time now, the Equine Clinic of the Vetsuisse Faculty at the University of Bern and the Reproduction Center at the Swiss National Stud in Avenches have been closely working together in research and education. With the current institutionalized collaboration, these fields could be significantly reinforced.
With the newly created competences and possibilities we can now even better meet the requirements of the horse and the Swiss horse industry. The Equine Clinic of the Vetsuisse Faculty at the University of Bern as well as the EU-accredited Reproduction Centre of the National Stud Avenches form part of ISME. The activities of the institute therefore take place at both clinics in Bern and Avenches.
