Internships offer practical experience of different working contexts, in which students are able to experiment the acquired knowledge and techniques.

Further studies neuro-physio-pathological examinations applied to invasive, experimental neurophysiological studies and research. During the internship, in complex organisational situations, students will acquire both technical neuro-physiological skills in professional practice and group working skills, as well as increasing professional autonomy and responsibility.
