- Introduction and objectives
The doctoral programme in Nursing and Health marks a commitment by the University of Barcelona and the URV to the future of education and research in the field of nursing and health care. The programme offers a joint doctoral degree from the University of Barcelona (the coordinator) and the URV.
The aim of the programme is to train students as new researchers in the field of nursing and health care in order to enhance the quality of research. Health care is considered from a broad and holistic perspective that includes persons, health, the environment, society and medical treatment.

These disciplines are intended as a source of dynamism and progress that provide the students with the right tools and knowledge for carrying out research in health care in order to meet the economic, social and medical challenges of a changing society.
The general objectives are the following:
