In clinical practice, diagnosing, monitoring, and treating Autoimmune Diseases is not a straightforward task. The simultaneous or overlapping involvement of multiple organs and the presence of often vague or confusing symptoms require professionals to have a series of up-to-date and practical skills and knowledge that allow them to make quick and efficient decisions. Often, care in these cases involves dealing with long-term situations, in which the patient needs special personal, human and medical attention, both because of the absence of a diagnosis that provides an answer to their situation and because of the exhaustion inherent to long-term pathologies. During this complete Professional Master’s Degree, the student will get the specialized and experienced vision that this type of diseases demands and needs. With solvency and seriousness that offers the teaching prestige of the largest online university in the world.

The content of this master's degree will cover, comprehensively and clearly, all aspects of the most relevant Systemic Autoimmune Diseases. Based on the study of Clinical Immunology as a basis for understanding the processes of development of autoimmune pathology, unraveling the different aspects of interest of this medical discipline. A specific and practical approach that will lead the medical professional to know in depth the different Autoimmune Diseases described so far, knowing and integrating their diagnostic and classificatory criteria in daily practice.
