Mobility for Training

The Erasmus+ Programme provides mobility opportunities for academic/administrative staff from other Universities, allowing them to carry out a short mobility period of training at Faculdade de Ciências Médicas | NOVA Medical School (FCM|NMS).

Why choose NMS?

With over 40 years of history, FCM|NMS is a School with tradition but open to modern times, committed to providing excellent education in Medical studies. In 2017, and for the second consecutive year, FCM|NMS reached the 1st position in the ranking of admissions to Higher Education in Medicine, in the Lisbon Area. Furthermore, it was the first option for 75% of candidates.

FCM|NMS is associated with several health units, allowing a variety of teaching environments and a more comprehensive knowledge of hospital reality and primary health care. It was recently awarded with the Ministry of Health Gold Medal for Distinguished Services.

Located in Lisbon, the capital of Portugal and Europe’s safest city, the faculty's main services are in the city center, next to charming historic monuments and benefiting from a great transport network.
