On June 18th took place the closing ceremony of the International Master in Donation and Transplantation of Organs, Tissues and Cells and the Master in Clinical Investigation (Donation and Transplantation track) both issued by the University of Barcelona (UB). This year we counted with the participation of Dr. Roberto Cambariere and Dr. Rafael Badenes as main speakers, as well as Dr. Marta Farrero and Dr. Josep Maria Lloveras as representatives of the Catalan Transplantation Society.
In the 2020-21 edition there has been 40 master participants, 21 of whom have defended their final master dissertation on the 17th of June, with excellent results and positive feedbacks from the jury made up of University of Barcelona professors.
The International Master in Donation and Transplantation of Organs, Tissues and Cells is a 60 ECTS specific master of the UB that offers 4 different pathways. Each pathway includes 3 modules, an internship and a final master dissertation. The master is fully online and there is an option to complement it with a face to face internship in any of our associated centers in Spain, Europe or USA.
Each module covers a wide range of topics delivered through the use of the latest technologies. One of the new pedagogical innovations that our participants have enjoyed in this edition is the immersive learning experience during the online internship, with a virtual hospital visit that includes the best practices in the donation and transplantation field.
This program also promotes the building of a network of healthcare professionals including participants, experts leading the live lectures and the international organizations involved in the program, so that they can all benefit from future collaborations and life-long learning activities and community building. The 18th online edition of the Master program is set to start this October 2021 and registration is already open.
For those professionals who are interested in doing a PhD afterwards, we also offer the possibility of pursuing the official master degree of the University of Barcelona: Master in Clinical Investigation, Donation and Transplantation track (60 ECTS). The main aim of the program is to provide graduates in the biomedical and health areas with the necessary research skills to access to a PhD program in any EU country. The Master approach aims to improve all the competences related to research methodology, from the clinical context of each of the involved specialties.
Congratulations to all graduated participants! DTI Foundation and the University of Barcelona are looking forward to welcoming future participants to any of the master programs.
