Introduction to clinical practice: practical course

 

Scientific research is one of the most important objectives for the Lisbon Academic Medical Centre (CAML).

Of its three areas - assistance, teaching and research - it is in this last activity that an institution like CAML must assert itself as a centre of excellence, both nationally and internationally.

In this context, clinical research acquires an increased importance, since it allows transforming and advancing knowledge, making it operational, thus improving the quality of care.
