Espírito Santo Saúde Committed to Medical Education
As part of their commitment to continued medical education and training, Espírito Santo Saúde will be one of four sponsors for the Program for Advanced Medical Education given by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. The program aims to provide a strong foundation of scientific training to a generation of highly qualified Portuguese doctors, from internal medicine and other specialties, with the expectations that they will go on to contribute to innovative clinical research projects as a complement to their clinical care. The Program for Advanced Medical Education was developed through a partnership between Espírito Santo Saúde, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Champalimaud Foundation, and José de Mello Saúde. The 4th edition of this four year program starts on September 26. This year, 10 applicants will be supported with scholarships. The deadline for nominations will be announced on Gulbenkian Foundation website at www.gulbenkian.pt. Espírito Santo Saúde supports the continued education of our professionals and development of the medical community through the completion of over 50 educational events a year including technical and scientific meetings and training courses. In addition, the company supports clinical research and presentations at national and international congresses. Finally, our facilities host internships for medical and nursing students as well as health technicians and other clinical professionals.
