The Postgraduate Program in Gastroenterologywas founded in 1976. During the last forty years the Program has focused on training students who come from a variety of health science backgrounds, including physicians, nurses, biologists, biomedical engineers, psychologists and nutritionists. The aim of the Program has been to prepare students to become excellent researchers and teachers, able to work independently. Many postgraduates of the Program are now professors and researchers in institutions throughout Brazil, contributing to the development of science and medicine in this country.
