The curricular plan of this Master in Clinical Analysis (MAC), reflects the multidisciplinarity and specificity of this area of knowledge, and establishes as global objectives, among others:

  1. Updated and consistent training in the different scientific areas that make up Clinical Analyses;
  2. The guarantee of a considerable and effective laboratory component;
  3. The promotion of academic and scientific training necessary for the pursuit of higher education studies in the different scientific areas covered by Clinical Analyses.

MAC is organized in 4 semesters, with a total of 120 ECTS, 72 of which are attributed to the Course, composed of 13 compulsory curricular units, which takes place in the first 2 semesters and part of the third. The remaining 48 ECTS are attributed to the completion of the Professional Internship or Scientific Dissertation.
