Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Didactic methods.
The students, according to pre-established shifts, will carry out practical activities at the affiliated hospitals. If the epidemiological situation were to worsen, part of the internship will be carried out online, as per the resolution of the Interdepartmental Didactic Board.
