The need for and the benefits of interprofessional collaboration are clear in theory; however, its implementation is not a matter of course. Therefore, the SAMS organizes several conferences to reflect the state of interprofessional collaboration and to identify opportunities for improvement.

Since 2016, the SAMS has focused on one aspect of IPC by organizing symposia that offer a platform for exchange and networking. At this event, «best practice» examples have been awarded the «SAMS Prize on Interprofessionality». The last symposium will take place on 25 January 2022 in Winterthur.


  • 2022: «Interprofessionality in the health system: Lessons learned from the pandemic»
  • 2018: «Interprofessionality in the health system: Better Chronic Care»
  • 2017: «Interprofessionality in the health system: what training for what practice?»
  • 2016: «Interprofessionality in the health system: thusfar - and next steps?»


The registration form for the symposium 2022 is available in German or in French.


Information and documentation on all previous events can be found in German or in French.
