Research and innovation (R&I) in health sciences is a vital factor for the development and wellbeing of individuals and the general public by way of making new and better ways to anticipate, diagnose, treat, rehabilitate or ease the diseases and injuries they suffer.
Catalonia has a high level of research in the area of health sciences chiefly undertaken by doctors and pharmacists in care centres, research centres and universities.
However, there is still only a very small fraction of research carried out by clinical specialists in the healthcare arena, specifically very few nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists, occupational therapists, etc.
This Master's degree gives both the instrumental and procedural tools required by professionals who want to perform research, improve their knowledge, use scientific evidence and/or obtain a doctorate. The program’s aim is to teach research techniques to nurses, physiotherapists and other healthcare professionals who perform research in hospitals, primary care centres, institutes, high performance centres, research centres, etc., who want to achieve a doctorate and follow an academic career.
