Welcoming the Ticino to the table: our new member, the EOC
We’re delighted to say “Benvenuti!” to the Ente Ospedaliero Cantonale (EOC) Ticino, our newest full member and current associate member. The EOC submitted a hefty dossier to the SCTO Steering Board, as is protocol to apply for full membership. In taking this step, the EOC will be joining our eight other full members, six (university) hospitals, the Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences, and the Collège des Doyens.
Such a step represents greater integration in the world of Swiss clinical research, the inclusion of the Swiss-Italian region, its people, and its language. The full membership will come to fruition when the EOC – already a setting for clinical research – launches as the teaching hospital of a medical school based at the Università della Svizzera Italiana (USI).
