Health Sciences represents a strategic area in the Education, Training, Scientific Research and Technological Innovation domains. With this aim in mind, the Health Sciences area at Universidade Europeia pretends to develop an innovative process of integrated teaching. Students will, through different subject matters, acquire knowledge and expertise in a shared way, in view of future experiences throughout their professional life.
This approach is based on an innovative Academic Model based on experiential learning and transversal to all the institution areas and shown in this area of knowledge.
The proposed Academic Model relies on an integrated and transdisciplinary curriculum, which aims to ensure a holistic view of occupations through the training in simulated environments, where it is possible to practice real situations in a controlled environment promoting multidisciplinarity with a data-driven technical approach and a strong component of practical and theoretical-practical learning in occupational environments.
Practical and experiment oriented.
Recognised and highly qualified, with strong links to the different sectors and occupations in the health area.
Vast network with renowned public entities, companies and institutions in the health sector.
In a new University Campus to be developed within the next 3 years.
Health represents one of the most dynamic sectors in modern societies. The transformation processes underway, related to the demographic and epidemiological transition and the growing importance of responding to health needs, have contributed for an increasingly relevant and innovative scientific and technological development. This response requires a progressive and sustained investment in research and in the qualification of professionals, as well as an increased empowerment of citizens. With this in mind, Universidade Europeia chose the health area as one of its main strategic challenges. This bet is the result of a vast experience acquired by the institution, at an Iberian level, based on a One Health approach (Human, Animal and Environmental Health). It translates into a vast portfolio of programmes backed by a unique experiential learning and innovative infrastructures of major quality, with particular emphasis on training in simulated practice, Clinical Training, Research and Development and Pedagogical Innovation investment.

Bearing in mind the Universidade Europeia mission of transferring knowledge through applied research, an Observatory was created, with the purpose of generating knowledge through the development of research activities, with a view to its dissemination and sharing with citizens, health professionals and the community, and taking into account the relevance of the topics, the quality of the research and its neutrality and independence.
On World Health Day (7 April 2022), the Universidade Europeia awarded, for the first time in its history, the title of Doctor Honoris Causa to Dr. Maria de Belém Roseira and Dr. António Gentil Martins, for his invaluable and continuous contribution to the social and human development of our country.
