Emphasis is placed on a critical approach to training, the quality of the content and the mission to nucleate research. The graduate program in surgery is taught by faculty members from the department of surgery and other accredited lecturers. The program is governed by the general regulations for graduate courses at UNICAMP and the rules for graduate programs at the Faculty of Medical Sciences.
The master’s and doctoral courses in the major areas of surgery and experimental research are open to individuals who have completed an undergraduate course preferably in medicine, biology or a related subject in a legally accredited higher education institution.

To be eligible for admission as a degree-seeking graduate student (i.e., masters or doctoral programs), students must hold a university degree. Admission to graduate programs is subject to course-specific standards and requirements, which vary from one field to another. In order to find out these requirements, the student must get in touch with the specific department and request admission information (selection procedures, deadlines, etc). In general, applicants are evaluated by means of a written exam, a study plan and personal interviews.
Foreign students have their requests and documents initially reviewed by the Graduate Program Coordinator of the program he/she is interested. If accepted, a letter of conditional acceptance at the university will be issued and emailed to the student with a digital certification. This will enable the student to apply for a student visa, required for class registration upon arrival. You should not try to come on a tourist visa: A change of visa status after entering Brazil is not possible.
