Teaching is one of the cornerstones of the SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital to society. The dissemination of knowledge gained through healthcare, research and innovation is intended to provide health professionals with the best technical and human skills.

We offer comprehensive training based on multidisciplinary work and on human and scientific values.

We are an Obstetrics and Paediatric Medicine training centre that is part of the Universitat de Barcelona (UB); one of Spain’s most prestigious universities in health-related studies. We also provide nursing training at the Sant Joan de Déu Teaching Campus, which belongs to the same university.

Our teachers are trained by specialists with a high degree of expertise and experience who participate in various teaching activities, such as Post-graduate and Master’s degrees, areas of specialisation and national and international student stays. Continued training is another of the backbones of our teaching commitment.
