We are a leading healthcare campus encompassing all fields of health: from healthcare and research to teaching and management.
Professionalism, commitment and research by professionals on the Campus are the key elements in offering patients excellent care.
We are committed to research as a tool to provide solutions to the daily challenges we face in the field of medical healthcare.
We generate, transform and transmit knowledge in all areas of the health sciences, helping to train the professionals of the future.
We are defined by our vocation for communication. We invite you to share everything that happens at Vall d'Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus, and our doors are always open.
At the Psychiatry Department, our mission is to serve as the reference health care resource in the Barcelona Nord healthcare district for people with mental health problems and addictions. We offer a comprehensive service that is both effective and efficient, based on the professional quality of our staff, our modern facilities and coordination with all the mental health resources in the sector.
We currently have 10 beds in the Hospital, and thanks to a collaboration agreement with San Rafael Hospital, we also have an Integrated Adult Psychiatry Unit (UIPA), with 41 beds to admit acute psychiatric patients from the Barcelona Nord healthcare district.
Our goal is to lead the way in the design, study and research of more effective and efficient ways of addressing mental illness. We have created a model for the treatment of disruptive behaviours that is based first and foremost on the continuous advances made in neuroscience, clinical psychology and psychiatry regarding the knowledge of how the human brain works, and secondly on continuity of care throughout the whole therapeutic process.
We have four outpatient clinics (adults, addictions, children and adolescents and traumatology) and a Psychiatry Emergency ward with six bays, part of the A&E Department of the General Hospital:
On the other hand, we also offer suprasectoral programmes for the diagnosis and treatment of highly complex patients who are unable to receive adequate treatment at their centre in the Mental Health and Addiction Network of Catalonia.
The Neurology Teaching Unit at Vall d’Hebron University Hospital is provided by the Neurology Department with participation from Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Psychiatry, Neurosurgery, Neurophysiology, Neuroradiology, Paediatrics, and A&E.
Neurology training itinerary
Healthcare activity in neurology combines writing medical histories, diagnostic data collection, correct use of complementary exploratory procedures, and accurate clinical and aetiologic diagnosis, as well as choosing appropriate palliative treatments. We also emphasise the role of the relationship between resident doctors and patients in the basic areas of Neurology.
A large number of medical conditions and neurological illnesses can result in critical emergency situations, such as strokes and lupus. With this in mind, from the second year the duty shifts in neurological emergencies become a key aspect of residents’ work, and are always carried out under supervision. Neurologists are also required to carry out a rotation in neurological outpatient care.
Research studies are part of the practical work that neurologists must deepen and develop, with particular emphasis on ethical competence when carrying out research.
Neuroscience research should be done under supervision of a tutor , and requires solid training in scientific methodology as well as in bioethics and scientific communication.
