  1. Table 1 Listed are the established positions for academic positions (research, teaching) for researchers and administrative personnel, figures represent full time equivalent (FTE). Positions financed by external sources or research grants are not listed. The number of primary care physicians involved in teaching courses (taking place in primary care practices and not at universities) is listed separately. Publications were counted in the time period between 2008 and 2012, publications with a team member as first or last author were counted as authorships; publications were only counted once per institute, regardless of the number of participating authors. Third party funds are reflecting the same time period (2008–2012) and are listed in Swiss franc (CHF).
