Modules in Catalan/Spanish

 

Erasmus students who have a good command of Spanish can select among the other modules that are offered in the medical programme. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that most of the activities are conducted in Catalan, and the use of Spanish is at each professor's discretion in the presence of foreign students. The University of Girona offers Erasmus students a free introductory course to Catalan language and culture; more information is available on the International Relations Office webpage.

Guidelines for Research Participation 

  

Erasmus students in their final years have the possibility to attach themselves to an on-going health-related scientific research programme offered by our School and partner institutions to further strengthen and integrate knowledge and skills that they have developed in the preceding years. 

 

Currently there are fourteen research programmes that are available for hosting exchange students for a period of three months. 

 

Procedures

Erasmus students who are interested in the option of research participation should read the following information on the research programmes.

 

1. Choose a research programme

      Aging, Cancer and Energy Metabolism of Stem Cells: A Therapeutically Exploitable Connection 

     Clinical Relevance of Percutaneous Liver Biopsy Compared to Non-Invasive Tests: Is It Time For Change?

      Colonic Microbiota and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

     Epidemiology and Prevention of Ski Casualties

•   Effect of Oral PUFA Supplementation on the Outcome of HCV Standard Treatment

      Genetics of Sudden Cardiac Death

      Identification of Genes and Epigenetic Factors in Susceptibility to Multiple Sclerosis and Other Neuro-Immunologic Diseases

      Inflammation in Obesity: Its Relationship with Adipose Tissue Biology

      Knowledge Translation into Healthcare Decision-Making at Micro, Meso and Macro Levels

      Pharmacoepidemiology

   Population Morbidity and Other Conditions of Health Services Resource Utilization and Health Expenditure 

      Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Diseases. Cardiovascular Risk Stratification Using Risk Functions

•   Role of Pancreatic Endoscopic Ultrasonography

•   The Ultraendurance Athlete

 

 

2. Preparation

The Research Participation aims at integrating and applying the knowledge and competences that you have acquired during your medical programme, and further developing your research skills and methodology. Thus a detailed planning beforehand would maximize the benefits that you can get during your stay with us.

 

After identifying a research programme that you are interested in, you will need to prepare a brief one-page research proposal addressing several questions on the form for Research Participation Proposal. We advise that you elaborate this proposal with your supervisor at your home institution. Please send the form as an attachment to the Erasmus academic coordinator: teresa.puig@udg.edu 

 

3. Contact

Each programme usually agrees to host no more than two students in one period, and thus places are limited. Based on your research proposal, the programme coordinator will decide whether a place will be available for you. If it is so, the programme coordinator will get in touch with you.

 

4. Working/research plan

The programme coordinator, together with you and your supervisor at your home institution, will agree on a detailed working plan for your study period with us.

 

To allow sufficient time for all the preparations before your arrival, initial contact (i.e. step 2) should be made six months before your proposed study period.
