The principal modalities for Graduate level Academic Exchange are:
(I) As a student enrolled in a Graduate Program of a foreign institution, with the intention to realize part of your research project at FMRP;
(II) As a student regularly enrolled on one of the Graduate Programs offered by FMRP-USP
In case I, you and your supervisor at the institution of origin will have to define the specific conditions of your stay with one of the professors of the respective Graduate Programs at FMRP.
In case II, you should contact one of the professors of FMRP whom you consider most suitable to become your supervisor. Subsequently, like all the other regular Graduate Students, you will have to pass the Selection Process for admission to the respective Graduate Program.
Information on Graduate Programs offered at FMRP can be obtained from the site of the Graduate Programs Commission (Comissão de Pós-Graduação (CPG) da FMRP) (http://www.fmrp.usp.br/cpg/)
Please note: All Graduate Programs currently offered at FMRP are academic degree Programs (Masters or PhD), they are not specialization programs in medical areas or health sciences in a broader sense.
Candidates interested in Internship, please contact the Internship Commission (COREME), as detailed in the respective section.
Information on accommodation and resources and facilities available to exchange students can be obtained from the site of the International Affairs Office of the Ribeirão Preto Campus Administration (http://www.pcarp.usp.br/pages/capee/)
