* from the preamble of the framework institute regulation:
"The framework institute regulation applies to all institutes, seminars, departments and clinics of the UZH, including the Center of Dental Medicine and the Animal Hospital. Due to the special legal basis for institutions, whichs main functions are the treatment and care of patients or the provision of laboratories - and other medical services, it does not apply to the clinics of the university hospitals, to the institutes of the medical faculty with a clinical service function or patient care function, or to the institute for forensic medicine. Also excluded from the framework institute regulation are faculties which only consist of one Institute. These must implement the requirements of the framework institute regulation in their organizational regulations. The framework institute regulation cannot be applied to dual institutes of UZH and ETH Zurich either. "
