In terms of experience, SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital is one of the leading centres for the Spanish nursing residency training programme (EIR). Since 2012, we have been offering 6 places a year to qualified nurses interested in highly specialised training. We also offer 4 different places of nursing for Gynecology and Obstetrics of our center, popularly better known as Resident Midwives Nurses (EMR).
What makes our centre different is that it is the only hospital in Catalonia that exclusively provides care to paediatric patients, in all aspects, from primary care to the most complex diseases our tertiary referral hospital treats.
In addition to the clinical and research training regulated in the common Cross-curricular Plan of the Spanish Ministry of Health and the Catalan Autonomous Government’s Teaching Quality Plan, we offer three free courses of Education Sant Joan de Déu every year.
We also offer the chance to take part in other training activities such as conferences and congresses (in ours and other centres). You will be able to attend at least one of these activities, paid for by the Hospital. More than half of our team of nurses are specialists: train with professionals highly experienced.
Our philosophy of learning is based on experience and care of children and their families. In the Gynaecology and Obstetrics area, women are cared in all their stages.
