The NOVA Medical School|Faculdade de Ciências Médicas (NMS|FCM) is Universidade NOVA de Lisboa’s (NOVA) medical school since 1977. With 1.676 undergraduate students (25% of whom in international mobility programmes), NMS|FCM has 356 postgraduate students and 414 professors and researchers (30% of whom with a PhD degree).

In 2011 we started the implementation of the New Curriculum, which will continue in 2015-2016. The clinical teaching takes place in various health institutions (public and private) partnered with the medical school through protocols ratified by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education and Science.

NMS|FCM offers a great diversity of postgraduate courses and programmes in different health areas. NMS|FCM has a significant number of groups of excellence in biomedicine, translational research, clinical research, and epidemiology and services.

The new Research Pole opening in Campus Santana will be an important contribution to the development of the Faculty’s research, in close collaboration with the CEDOC - Centro de Estudos de Doenças Crónicas (Research Centre on Chronic Diseases). It will also provide improvements to educational activities, such as the new library and the new training center for clinical skills.
