The Integrated Master in Medicine (MIM) of the University of Algarve (UAlg) has open applications for the academic year 2021/22 until next December 22.
This course, centered on an innovative learning method, Problem Based Learning (PBL), includes clinical teaching since the 1st year and is intended only for students already licensed.
For the edition of the academic year 2021/202, the Integrated Master in Medicine at the University of Algarve has 64 places available.
After having managed to assert itself at the national and international level, the Integrated Master in Medicine (MIM) "has contributed in a very positive way to the establishment of doctors in the Algarve and to the improvement of the quality of health care and associated research", namely through the training of about 300 new doctors, of which about 37% currently work in the Algarve region, according to UAlg.
The number of doctoral doctors in the Algarve also increased from 2 in 2009 to more than 25 in 2020.
In addition to the Algarve region, doctors trained in the region are distributed throughout the country and even in European countries, by most medical specialties, such as Neurosurgery, Cardiology, Maxillofacial Surgery, General and Family Medicine (FGM), Gastroenterology, Urology and Anesthesia.
The Order of Doctors has already publicly recognized the UAlg Medical Course, namely by incorporating the attribution of the Manuel Machado Macedo prizes to the best students of MIM-UAlg in the context of the Hippocratic Oath ceremonies, in Lisbon.
This recognition is also expressed by winning 1st place in the European Medical Simulation Championship (2018) and by the marks obtained in the exams to access the medical specialty, with a graduate from UAlg obtaining the best classification in the first edition of the National Test Access (PNA), where the remaining finalists also obtained a higher national average.
UAlg also highlights the exams of the European Board of Medical Assessors, whose results of MIM students were above the population average of participating universities: University of Helsinki, Finland; Maastricht University, Netherlands; and David Tvildiani Medical University, Georgia.
