In its 5th edition, the Medical Winter Schools is receiving, from the 15th to the 26th of July 2019, 68 foreign and Brazilian students for the international program aimed at training and educational activities in the medical area. The selection was published in April and it includes students from diverse nationalities.
The program is for free and it is delivered in English. It is aimed at graduation students of FMUSP and affiliated universities, including Brazilian ones. The activities include different themes: Trauma and Acute Surgery, Cardiology, Gynecology, Dermatology, Geriatrics (for students in the biomedical and social fields, besides medicine), Infectious Diseases, Psychiatry, Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine and Neurology.
The students were selected based on school performance, awards and/or highlighted academic activities and institutional representativeness already accomplished in their origin institutions.
Besides the educational program, there will also be visits to the Unified Health System of the Hospital das Clínicas Complex and social gatherings organized by Brazilian students so the participants can experience and enjoy the culture and entertainment of São Paulo.
The FMUSP Medical Winter Schools has been consolidating itself as an excellent opportunity of interaction with international students, enabling the sharing of new knowledge and interests in the different medical areas.
