The Curricular Structure is aimed at ensuring the training of students in synergy with the objectives of the Program. There is content focused on the nuclear training of graduate students providing opportunities for learning scientific methodology and writing scientific texts. Nuclear training subjects are recommended for all students, and the student may eventually take equivalent or complementary subjects offered in other PPGs. There are core subjects recommended specifically for the Master’s course and others for the Doctorate course. There are disciplines to support the different lines of research, as shown below.

Nuclear Training Subjects recommended for the Master’s Course:

Semi-annual enrollment:

The regular student must enroll in the Janus System every six months until submitting the dissertation or thesis.

There are two types of enrollment: enrollment in courses or attendance enrollment (if you are not going to take the disciplines).

The semi-annual enrollment shall be made in January and July, according to the schedule informed by the Dean of Graduate Studies by USP e-mail.

Failure to enroll implies termination of the Graduate program.

The Special Student is an undergraduate student who enrolls in Graduate disciplines. There are no admission examination procedures for a special student in graduate courses at Ribeirão Preto Medical School-USP. The student can enroll in disciplines at any time during the semester until the beginning of the chosen discipline.
