Teaching language



To transmit knowledge, skills and professional attitudes in order to promote the development in the area of the clinical Urology with adequate relevance for the education of the pluripotential doctor. 18 clinical sessions were planned for transmission of basic notions since the students (fifth year) still have no contact with the semiology and pathology of Urology. Clinical practice in the operating room and ambulatory guidance are also included. In selecting the program, the Portuguese reality of a high number of urologic diseases, an increase in the prevalence of the urologic diseases in the future, and the reduced exercise of clinical Urology in a large number of hospital units were considered. In this way, the future general physicians will be qualified to provide urologic care to the community.
