Health Area Graduate Schools are university study courses which teach a high level of professional skills, intended to train medical specialists.
At the end of the course of study, participants are issued with a diploma of specialisation in their chosen sector.
Specialist training for doctors is provided on a full-time basis.
Access to the School is by competitive examination, for candidates who hold a degree in medicine and surgery and are licensed to practise as physicians,
with a number of places planned at the ministerial level.
Doctors undergoing specialist training are employed under a specialist training contract throughout their course of study.
The relevant Regulations, Teaching Regulations and Student Guide are published on the specific webpages of each individual School.
