In the first year, the student will be welcomed for two weeks in accredited services of his choice among those available, with the mandate to apply, under the guidance of an expert nurse, the knowledge and methodologies acquired for the resolution of a clinical background question related to their field of interest.

In the second year, there is a 4-week internship experience in accredited services chosen by the student (Nursing and Obstetrics Departments, Operational or Service Units, Training Services, Research Centers, Degree Courses, Quality Offices, Organizational Consultancy Company in Healthcare, etc.). This experience, to which the fourth semester of the Master’s is almost entirely dedicated, is aimed at developing, under the supervision of an expert colleague, an innovation project applied to a context chosen by the student.
