The Higher Education Assessment and Accreditation Agency (A3ES) has just granted maximum accreditation, for a period of six years, to the Higher School of Health of the Piaget Institute of Vila Nova de Gaia.
This recognition, at the highest level, of the teaching quality of the Piaget Institute takes on a special significance, at a time when healthcare professionals are so required in the context of combating the current Covid-19 pandemic and so much needed is revealed training as many graduates as possible in this area.
For the School’s director, Isabel Alves, the accreditation now granted “values even more the contribution of an institution that has trained, in recent years, thousands of professionals of recognized preparation and competence that have proved so decisive, particularly in recent months”.
The School’s training offer currently includes degrees in Nursing, Physiotherapy, Osteopathy and Acupuncture, in addition to more than a dozen postgraduate and advanced training courses, which include the areas of administration and management of health units; operating room nursing; nursing at work; innovation, quality management, and health auditing; clinical supervision; and thermalism, among others.
Additionally, the training offer includes several higher professional technical courses (CTeSP) in the fields of gerontology; family and community service; and physical exercise and health.
