Summer school 2015

The summer school is an international multiprofessional and interdisciplinary workshop for students and young professionals.
The teaching method is interactive - with the opportunity for dialogue and discussions in seminars, workshops and debates - involving students and teachers alike.
The topics were proposed, evaluated and explored by an international planning group formed by some of the participating students over a six-month period. Supervised by established professionals, the process produced the baseline material for the course.



Target group
International students and young professionals (20- 35 years old) from diverse biomedical professions (medical doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, etc.)
Maximum: 50 participants

Portuguese, English, Italian, Spanish.


In the current complex environment of health systems, the need for a human touch and satisfactory training of health professionals is bigger than ever. There is a need to care for the whole human person and not simply pathology.
Effective integration between different health professionals and various services (e.g. hospital and community) is required to avoid fragmentation and ensure a holistic view of patient care

The Summer School aims to:

• Increase awareness of topics considered fundamental to health professionals, but often ignored in traditional teaching.
• Lay the basis for professional methodology and practice, to respond effectively to the challenges and emerging needs in health internationally.


1. Relationships in health services delivery, considered an essential professional requirement and key to tackling new quandaries (clinical, ethical, legal and economic) faced by medical scientists, health organisations and individuals.
Starting from the growing importance given to communication and interaction within health, we will focus on the impact of patient and patient-family relationship within the health care team and within the network of social and health services.

2. Ethics in daily clinical practice – progressing from documents of international medical institutes to some clinical experiences e.g. end of life care.

An attendance certificate will be issued at the end of the course.
