The 4th year students of the Integrated Master's Degree in Medicine of Universidade Católica will have the opportunity to carry out their clinical training at the Hospital Professor Doutor Fernando Fonseca, as of September 2024. This important step in the clinical training of future doctors of Católica results from the agreement signed between the University and the Hospital last March 10.

Through this partnership, the institutions will provide practical teaching, tutorials and curricular clinical internships for students of the Integrated Masters in Medicine.

Present at the signing of the protocol were the President of Católica, Isabel Capeloa Gil, the Dean of the Católica Medical School, António Almeida, the representative of the Executive Board of the National Health Service, Francisco Goiana da Silva, the President of the Amadora City Council, Carla Tavares, and the President of the Sintra City Council, Basílio Horta.

The cooperation between the Católica Medical School and the Hospital Fernando da Fonseca aims to provide students of the Faculty the opportunity to carry out not only practical teaching and clinical rotations, but also a biomedical and clinical research collaboration.

Fernando da Fonseca Hospital joins our clinical training offer as our clinical collaborator, whose partner is Grupo Luz Saúde. This partnership covers all Grupo Luz Hospitals, including Hospital da Luz Lisboa, which will be the University Hospital of Católica Medical School.

The first students in the 4th year of the Integrated Master in Medicine will begin clinical rotations in the most recent partner hospital as of September 2024. In the following year, the expansion to 5th year clinical rotations is planned, with groups of 10 students.
