In 2015-2016 we will continue the implementation of the New Curriculum, with gradual beginning in the 1rst year. 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 de Sant’Ana gave an important contribution to the development of the School’s research, in close collaboration with the CEDOC - Centro de Estudos de Doenças Crónicas (Research Centre on Chronic Diseases) and the TOXOMICs (Toxicogenomics Center and Human Health). It also provided improvements to educational activities, such as the new library and the new training center for clinical skills.
