The Graduate Program in Sciences Applied to Adult Health Care was created in 2008, from the combination of the Internal Medicine and the Gastroenterology Graduate Programs. It has earned a Level 4 (out of 7) by CAPES (the Brazilian Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education). The faculty comprises 20 advising professors across 11 lines of research, in a variety of areas of expertise. The curriculum offers several subjects from which to choose, with only one core subject. Candidates, however, are also required to take 4 credits in biostatistics and/or epidemiology subjects. The minimum number of total required credits is 20 for the master’s degree and 30 for doctoral programs. Despite being a recent Graduate Program, the Graduate Program in Sciences Applied to Adult Health Care benefits from the joint experience of two other programs, allowing it to foster greater knowledge production, interdisciplinarity, and capillarity, in addition to augmenting international exchange.
