Module 6: Master’s Thesis

Module 6 aims to train the student in the reflective approach of the available scientific evidence, in order to turn it into a competent healthcare professional with the ability to update and innovate in the care of the acutely ill patient; acquiring skills in the search, management and critical reading of information, scientific communication skills and basic knowledge of clinical research.

The teaching is organized following the paradigm of blended learning in which the concepts to be acquired are approached in an initial theoretical manner, together with face-to-face case discussion sessions; continuous evaluation activities and with the development of a clinical research design. During this process, the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and collaborative work will be strengthened.
