The Rheumatology Department's Teaching Unit is officially authorised for the training of resident Rheumatology interns. At present, we offer two training places for residents every year. One of our priority objectives is to attract and train resident doctors in order to return the knowledge we have gained to society and to further the training of highly-qualified professionals to face the future challenges of medicine, also known as personalised or precision medicine.
At the Rheumatology Section, we carry out extensive teaching activity, both in continuous education within the department itself, and in the organisation of seminars and courses aimed at professionals from other hospitals and other medical specialities. One of our objectives is to enhance the health workshops aimed at patients. We actively participate in national and international congresses.
We are a leading national and international centre with a high number of applications for training places, especially in the areas of paediatric rheumatology, chronic inflammatory arthritis and systemic autoimmune diseases, musculoskeletal ultrasound and central sensitivity syndromes.
We give theory and practical classes in Rheumatology in the Medicine Degree course at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. We also undertake intense teaching activities in Master’s courses and other postgraduate activities.

We are a clinical unit that aims to offer high-quality, cross-cutting care and teaching, as well as developing research excellence in the area of musculoskeletal and connective tissue diseases. We have extensive experience in training specialists in rheumatology. We guarantee rigorous, high-quality training in all the professional care, research and teaching skills in our area.
The training programme includes residents in the Rheumatology research group’s lines of research, so that they receive general training in research methodology, conventional and new areas of research, such as precision medicine, as well as evidence-based precision medicine, evidence-based medicine and research based on healthcare outcomes. Furthermore, our residents have the chance to undertake training periods in internationally renowned centres in both Europe and the United States.
Experience in research allows us to offer students a high-quality doctoral programme to carry out a thesis project and become a Doctor of Medicine. We also offer the opportunity to actively collaborate on research projects assessed by national and European public research bodies, and to co-author the resulting papers.
