In a single program, this professional master’s degree has all the information necessary for the care required by patients with severe burns. The multidisciplinary aspect of the specialization is noteworthy, as these patients are extremely complex and require many specialists working together, with the aim of achieving a rapid recovery. 

In addition to the complete and fully up-to-date information, it offers the greatest experience from the teaching staff in the treatment of this type of patient. This experience is very valuable since there are very few burn wards and, therefore, the possibility of specialization is scarce.

An innovative part of this professional master’s degree is that the theoretical information is complemented with graphs, diagrams, clinical case studies and explanatory videos that will be very useful to retain the information. It also highlights the main developments and provides recommended readings for many topics, especially for those that are new or controversial. As for the case studies, many of them are based on real-life situations, through which the ability to solve different scenarios will be exercised, in addition to serving as a self-assessment for learning.

In this way, the student will update or attain knowledge that will enable them to treat these patients and to work in a team through knowledge of issues related to other specialties. It will also enable the student to face the initial assessment and treatment, fundamental moments for the prognosis. In addition, it has the advantage of being a 100% online specialization, so the student can decide from where to study and at what time to do so, and in this way, they can flexibly self-direct their study schedule.
