The master's degree in Maternal-Fetal Medicine responds to the need for obstetricians with advanced training in maternal-fetal care. The programme's theory component is delivered online, while the practical component is attendance-based.
The theory component is divided into modules with basic and advanced content in maternal fetal medicine. This part is supported by an interactive platform consisting of discussion forums and master classes taught by experts in the subject area.
The programme includes a 2-year placement in Hospital de Sant Pau, Hospital de la Vall d'Hebron and Hospital Quiron. Students will complete different rotations in maternal fetal units, taking an active part in treatment, clinical sessions and training events in these hospitals.
