Graduate Program in Clinical Medicine

The Graduate Program in Clinical Medicine of the UFRJ today is the confluence of the academic and institutional activities of faculty, learners and collaborators who dedicate themselves to the development of research lines within the wide area of expertise known as "Clinical Medicine".

Created in 1978 and having had its Doctorate accredited in 1994, it has prepared a total of 726 students until 2013, 540 of them being Master students and 186 Doctorate students. Since 1996 it has been a part of the Brazilian Post-Graduation elite, achieving maximum grades in the triennial evaluations made by CAPES, having been rated 7 in the last two evaluations.

The Program is developed through interrelated research projects organized into well-defined research lines, each of them with its responsible faculty researcher who will advise the post-graduation and graduation students.

For the professors and researchers of the Program, the scientific production fulfills a twofold objective: to be an instrument for the education of the post-graduation student and to become the main goal of the university activity.

The number of available positions and even the disciplines attended by the student depend directly on the needs and the availability of each research line.

A core of essential mandatory disciplines is provided, as well as a "menu" of elective disciplines related to the research lines currently active.

The Program has distinguished itself because of its active international insertion, which is characterized by the partnership not only in scientific articles, but also by the search for external resources for the promotion of scientific training and research.
