Egas Moniz Higher Education School (EMHES)

Egas Moniz, CRL is a reference in Health education in Portugal. Our mission: “dedicated to the advancement of knowledge, learning and education of students, at the service of the health improvement of global society in the 21st century”. Our two institutions, IUEM and ESSEM, currently have about 2 500 students and over 400 faculty members and they offer you undergraduate, master’s and PhD degrees and other postgraduate courses in the health area.

The commitment to quality and the qualification of the teaching staff, as well as facilities, equipment and scientific research are undoubtedly reflected in the level of competence of our graduates. Also, the internationalization plays an important role, in particular the Erasmus and Erasmus Mundus programmes, in addition to collaboration agreements with European universities and the attraction of foreign students.

It is a constant concern and direct responsibility of our Cooperative to provide all the necessary means to achieve a good performance of teaching staff and students and, thereby, to enhance academic success.

Apart from academic life, the very essence of the institution, in which all students are co-operators and actively involved in decisions, promotes an open mind and a way of being and living in society which corresponds to an added value in their formation.
