Bruno Morgado, graduated in Medicine from the University of Algarve, obtained the best classification in the first edition of the National Examination of Access (PNA), used to rank new graduates in Medicine in accessing the specialty.
After 40 years, the PNA replaced the Harrison Exam, which was no longer well regarded by students, including Bruno Morgado, who considered it “an aberration”.
Remember, the Integrated Master in Medicine at UAlg lasts four years and is aimed at graduated students, who hold at least one first cycle of studies – undergraduate.
Its program is entirely based on Problem Based Learning (PBL) and includes clinical teaching since the 1st year.
Although most of these characteristics are not innovative, in themselves, in Portugal, given that other medical schools apply them in one way or another, the integration of all of them in the same medical course can only be seen at UAlg.
The combination of all these components is essential for the preparation of future doctors, explains Bruno Morgado, who obtained 136 points out of 150 in the ranking.
With a degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences, for this doctor, working at the Centro Hospitalar Universitário do Algarve (CHUA), the UAlg course is “without a doubt, the best in the country”.
The average obtained by the finalists of Medicine at UAlg was higher than the national average, also highlights the Algarve academy.
