Master's Degree in Pediatric Infectious Diseases
IntroductionThis is a classroom-based master's degree for professional specialisation, taught over one year. It is delivered jointly by the Pediatric Infectious Diseases and Immunodeficiency Unit, the Microbiology Service and the Preventive Medicine and Epidemiology Service of Vall d'Hebron University Hospital. It consists of 70 ECTS credits in 6 modules of 10 credits each. The six modules devote around 40% of their time to classwork: seminars, lectures and individualised teaching, another 40% to clinical placements and 20% to individual work, based on the teaching material given out at the start of the year and also on the topics dealt with in everyday clinical work. Students also have to attend several courses and write a Master's Dissertation that counts for 10 ECTS, tutored by a lecturer on the programme.
