General aspects

The academic objectives that students must achieve within our Hospital must be presented by the Higher Education Institution (HEI) to which they belong.

The care responsibility falls on the collaborator linked to the Hospital; therefore, this must be committed to protect the individuality and privacy of patients and their willingness to accept or not the care by trainees.

All training practices must be approved through our Teaching Committee, which ultimately defines the installed capacity, the number of students, the level of training and the objectives that can be accepted and executed for a given rotation.
