The project

In this pre-med project participants with an interest in science, medicine or health care will be involved in an active learning environment in a realistic, dynamic medical experience.

They will discover the work in a university hospital and learn about the challenges faced and the research developed in the different specialized Institutes/Centers of the Hospital Clínic. In small groups, students will have the opportunity to delve into some of these areas of medical specialization and, together with expert physicians and researchers, understand how a given clinical problem triggers specific research.
