FMUSP Winter Schools

Every year, we are honored to organize the FMUSP Medical Winter Schools, a program that consists of two weeks with educational activities on different topics.

 Besides the educational program, there are also visits in our Health Care System (Hospital das Clínicas Complex) and social gatherings organized by the Brazilian students for the participants to experience and enjoy the culture and fun of São Paulo!

The FMUSP Medical Winter Schools provides you with a great opportunity to meet new people from all over the world and to share your interests and knowledge in Medical Areas.
