The Swiss Bone and Mineral Society (SBMS) was established in 1995 with the following purpose:

-  To stimulate research, teaching, and clinical activities in the field of bone and mineral diseases as well as in any field of basic science related to it.

-  To promote interactions among scientists and clinicians and among other scientific societies at the national as well as at the international levels.

-  To give assistance for questions related to the development of research, teaching, and continuing education in the field of bone and mineral diseases.

-  To act as a delegate for all public health problems related to bone diseases, in close collaboration with the Swiss Association against Osteoporosis (SVGO).

Membership is open to all scientists and clinicians interested in the field of bone and mineral research, as well as to commercial corporations. The society holds at least one scientific meeting per year. Committees may be designated for the study of particular problems.
