The quality and relevance of the academic production, very good job prospects for graduates in a relevant number of higher education institutions from Brazil, internationalization, research funding and social impact actions are some of the highlights of the Graduate Program in Pediatrics and Child Health. The program’s excellence has been certified by the Coordenação de Aperfeiçoamento de Pessoal de Nível Superior – Capes (Brazilian Federal Agency for Evaluation and Support of Graduate Education), and has agreements with national and international universities, from countries such as Germany, Australia, Canada, Chile, USA and UK.

To follow are some of the international partners: Concordia University, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Leibniz Universität Hannover, The University of Queensland, The University of Edinburgh, Duke University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and PUC Chile. “This network brings different areas together and, consequently, leads to the production of high-quality articles”, says Dr Rita Mattiello, the program’s coordinator.

The program seeks to foster high-quality research into areas, such as asthma (epidemiology, genetics and study of basic mechanisms); functional evaluation and rehabilitation for chronic respiratory diseases; stem cells and neurodegenerative diseases; organic dysfunction in children; immune response to viral respiratory infections; clinical epidemiology; epigenetics and molecular mechanisms of stress during development; clinical and experimental epilepsy; diagnostic and therapeutic interventions in critical newborns; and behavioral and developmental neurology. “The University has a unique infrastructure for researchers and students to develop their studies and international multicenter clinical tests of excellence as well”, says the Program’s coordinator.
