The course emphasizes interdisciplinary and critical scientific training, qualification and course nucleation. This proposal led to the creation of an interdisciplinary-themed postgraduate program in specific areas of knowledge, employing complementary lines of research.Its target audience is physicians and non-physicians and course durations are 12-30 months for Masters Degrees (M.Sc.) and 24-48 months for Ph.D. courses.
