Re: anybody experience with surgery in Switzerland / CHUV Lausanne hospital?

The "Assistenzarzt" (what you call student-doctor) will be monitored by a supervisor and will call an experienced doctor ("oberarzt") if anything deviates from being ideal. So, I would not worry too much. From a personal example, in my recent birth in Luzern, I started with a midwife only, who then called a student-doctor, who then called the big-doctor.
On the other hand, I have seen upgrade options exist (both in Luzernn and in Zurich). Payable directly to the hospital.
