A distinguishing feature is the incorporation of a solid itinerary of skills training and clinical simulation that allows students to train in realistic scenarios that constitute a safe learning environment. This itinerary is integrated into the different subjects, complementing and keeping coherence with the theoretical learning process and allowing its preclinical application.
The program’s organization is committed to providing care to areas of clinical specialization, without losing focus of the training of general practitioners for which the degree provides qualifications. This allows us to guarantee a professional profile capable of responding to the current morbidity derived from greater child survival sometimes associated with disability and/or special needs and, at the same time, the increase in the elderly population with the demands of aging and the increasingly prevalent non-communicable diseases. Along the same lines, the specific health needs of women are addressed.
On the other hand, this Bachelor's Degree is developed in total harmony with the global and interprofessional health approach promoted from the School of Life Sciences (FCVN), recently created at Nebrija University, and to which this degree belongs, in clear connection with other Bachelor's Degrees taught, such as Physical Activity and Sports Sciences, and Nursing.Read Less
