  • Pediatric rheumatology
  • Pediatric specialties

Training Objectives.

The objective of the doctoral program is to provide the theoretical knowledge and tools to carry out an individual research program, under the guidance of one of the faculty members (mentors), in the field of health sciences in the pediatric, perinatal, and developmental age.
The research may be clinical or laboratory-based with translational purposes and must be described in at least one publication in which the doctoral student appears as first author.
