International patients: Institut Curie’s cancer treatment options

Recognized for its expertise, Institut Curie receives hundreds of foreign patients each year. To better meet the needs of these patients who come without French health insurance, Institut Curie has formed a dedicated team and developed a range of specific services to include first opinion, second opinion, sample analysis, treatment, and concierge.

Institut Curie is a leading player in the fight against cancer. It boasts an internationally-renowned Research Center with a state-of-the-art Hospital Group which treats patients suffering from cancer, including the rarest forms. In 2016, Institut Curie welcomed more than 50,000 patients.

Founded in 1909 by two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie, Institut Curie now has over 3,400 researchers, physicians and caregivers working in support of its three missions: research, treatment, and the preservation and dissemination of knowledge.
