With a clear vision aimed at excellence, you will develop part of your training in the Simulated Hospital at Universidad Europea. The Hospital is an educational environment where students and health professionals learn through simulations and through interprofessional education, different types of skills in a non-stressful environment close to reality and under the supervision of teachers.

An environment where you can repeat, as often as necessary, the technique or specific skill which allows for mistakes to be made without consequences, to then be closely analyzed and corrected and to control the complexity of learning. Additionally, you will receive continuous feedback regarding your performance and you will be able to be objectively evaluated.

Study plan

On this course, you will obtain a global vision of the profession through an ambitious syllabus with two approaches: a clinical approach and research approach.


The teaching faculty combines their teaching work with professional activities and research, such as Dr. Moradiellos, Head of Thoracic Surgery of Grupo Quirón and a Pioneer in robotic surgery and Dr. Jordi Vilaró, a leading authority in the field of respiratory physical therapy.

Professional practices

Internships in companies are a key element in your education. Acquiring experience and putting into practice what you have learned on your degree is the best way to enter the labor market. There are two types of internship, curricular (which are included as part of your program) and extracurricular (which you can do on a voluntary basis).

In order to carry out an internship in a company, you’ll need to have passed 50% of your credits and register before you start the internship. Both the company and a professor on your course will monitor your progress on the internship as well as providing an evaluation at the half way mark and upon completion. 

If you want to gain extra work experience before finalizing your university studies, you are welcome to carry out extracurricular internships. You can carry them out in whichever year of your studies you choose but we remind you that internships are formative and should complement your studies. The more theoretical knowledge you have acquired throughout your degree, the more you will benefit from the internships.
