Our challenge is to adapt and embrace new technological advancements of scientific knowledge to provide quality health interventions to individuals and the community. Our aim is to adapt to changes and fulfill new demands, generate new knowledge and apply it in solving problems.
The PhD Program in Health Sciences encompasses the following areas: Infectious and Parasitic Diseases, Pathology, General Pediatrics, Child and Adolescent Health, Nutrition, Psychiatry and Mental Health, Radiology, Hematology, Rheumatology, Allergy, and Immunopathology. The program addresses aspects of diagnosis, prevention, therapeutics, disease control and prophylaxis, and human health disorders.
The Master’s Degree is part of the Postgraduate Program in Health Sciences. It provides professional improvement and methodological training, and stimulates research. Neurology and Neuroscience are included in the research lines to expand scientific production opportunities.
The Master’s Degree in Health Sciences is a 2-year long program. Entrance examination is held twice a year. Physical presence is required for weekly classes.
Target Applicants and Profile of Graduates
Applicants from different health-related areas are welcomed.
Profile of Graduates
Upon completion of the program, the graduates should be able to:
- have a critical, reflexive and ethical practice, based on technical and scientific knowledge.
- Demonstrate teaching skills.
- Do research and generate knowledge in the health science area.
The Master’s Degree offers a single concentration area in health sciences.
This concentration area is designed to train health-related professionals to develop teaching skills and research activities in the human health field.
Investigation of infectious health conditions
This research line addresses epidemiological, preclinical and clinical studies aimed at diagnosis, pathophysiological mechanisms, prevention and treatment of infectious diseases, and health conditions, as well as the development of new techniques, protocols, and products for that purpose.
Investigation of chronic health disorders
This research line addresses epidemiological, preclinical and clinical studies aimed at diagnosis, pathophysiological mechanisms, prevention and treatment of chronic non-communicable diseases and other chronic health disorders. It also supports the development of new techniques, protocols, and products for that purpose.
Studies and the development of medicines and health products
This research line addresses preclinical and clinical investigations related to the development and evaluation of the biological activity of plant extracts, pharmaceutical drugs, modified-release dosage forms and dental products, as well as studies on the rational use of medicines.
Inflammatory and allergic processes
This research line addresses investigations on epidemiology and pathophysiology. It also supports preclinical and clinical studies on pharmacological and therapeutic aspects of infectious and allergic-related diseases.
This research line addresses preclinical and clinical studies aimed at investigating pathophysiological mechanisms of disorders affecting the nervous system, in order to prevent, diagnose, and treat them.
