Are you our type of student?
Do you have a degree in the branch of health science; Medicine, Biochemistry, Pharmacy, Biology, Nursing, Nutrition, Psychology, Social work, Physiotherapy or Occupational Therapy?

If you have a degree in some of these areas and also want to acquire knowledge to develop research methodologies, analyze and interpret clinical research and lead your own scientific research, this is your master’s degree.

OBJECTIVES

Train professionals able to:

  • demonstrate a competency that is systematic in the area of Medicine
  • conceive, design, and implement a substantial research process
  • contribute to extend the frontiers of knowledge through research
  • perform critical analysis, evaluate and synthesize complex ideas
  • know how to communicate the findings to the academic community and society health

STUDIES

The Master’s degree is composed by a total of 60 ECTS credits equivalent to an academic year. In the first semester four compulsory subjects will be studied (30 ECTS). In the second, students will choose between elective subjects to complete 12 ECTS, as well as develop the Final Master’s degree Project of with results (18 ECTS).

Common module compulsory subjects

Research Methodology I

In this course there will be an introduction of the main elements of the Research Methodology, which will be developed and completed in Research Methodology II and will be complemented in other subjects of this Master.

It will begin with the general aspects of the research, measurement conditions and traits of the populations involved in the design of the study, the definition of internal and external validity and errors that may appear in a study, as well as the key aspects will be summarized from the point of view legal and ethical force, to take into account in clinical studies. Then attend the approach to the research question that you define as the most concrete possible problem that you want to investigate in a structured way according to the formed peak. And define the scenario that you want to validate and the general and specific objectives of the research.

It is subsequently made an introduction to the design of studies and measurements of frequency and Association of impact. The definition of the set of variables which allow compliance with the established objectives and the preparation of a booklet of data (DRC) collection.

then you will be introduced to the students in a first descriptive analysis, grouping or reducing data, categorizing the variables and are then defined for confounding factors or modifiers of the effect or interaction. First is the raw data analysis in order to a stratified analysis. The main ways of presenting the results of an investigation are also described. And finally the student will learn the basic epidemiological concepts and their application to clinical practice.

Application of Scientific Evidence to Medicine

This course provides tools for searching and critical assessment of the evidence for both therapeutic and preventive clinical decision-making.

The subject focuses on intervention studies that provide a higher quality of evidence for decision making (the randomized clinical trials and systematic reviews of randomized trials). Successive units will examine the conceptual framework of decision-making based on the evidence, the assessment of the quality of the evidence and its application to the individual patient.

at the end of the course the participant should be able to find and assess the literature suitable for taking decisions in matters of prevention or treatment in the health sciences.
