Université des Patients

The Patients’ University

The Patients’ University is an innovative pedagogical system which consists of integrating patient-experts into university degree courses in therapeutic education.

The Patients’ University

Founded by Professor Catherine Tourette-Turgis in 2009, the Patients’ University offers patient-experts an education at Sorbonne University. It is the first university in the world to train and graduate chronic patients, taking into account the validation of their experience acquired through their illness and their care.

Through the awarding of a diploma, the Patients’ University enables patients to become more professional, but also to reduce their social isolation and improve their self-esteem: their skills are recognised and transferable to other areas of society and their sense of social usefulness is restored.
