The Department of Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Preventative Medicine at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona has for many years offered a large range of undergraduate and graduate courses. With the introduction of new legal provisions and the aim of gaining coherence and competitivity is has been agreed to split what was previously a single programme into two: Biomedical Research Methodology and Public Health, and Paediatrics, Obstetric & Gynaecology. The new PhD programme in Biomedical Research Methodology and Public Health aims to promote the more methodological side of doctoral studies, based on the disciplines of biostatistics and epidemiology, their application the health of the population (public health, community health, international health, etc.) and the population experiencing health problems (clinical epidemiology, health systems research, evaluation of healthcare quality, etc.). The programme is therefore aimed at graduates in one of the health science disciplines who want to gain more profound knowledge in some particular area of interest or specialisation from a point of maximum methodological solvency: etiology, diagnoses, prognostics, therapy, management, preventative medicine and public health among others.
