Residents at one of Europe's top pediatric hospitals receive the advantages of Practicum Script

The Practicum Foundation has signed a collaboration agreement with Hospital Sant Joan de Déu de Barcelona, one of the most important highly specialized pediatric centers in Europe. Thanks to this agreement, all residents in pediatric medicine at this prestigious women and children’s hospital will have free access to the Practicum Script clinical reasoning training program to complement their standard training.

The agreement was formalized in Barcelona at a meeting between the president of the Practicum Foundation, Dr Eduardo Hornos Barberis, and the director of Hospital Sant Joan de Déu’s Knowledge and Teaching department, Dr Rubén Díaz Naderi.

The academic agreement also provides for the development of a joint educational research protocol about the use of Practicum Script in residency programs.

Hospital Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona is private non-profit institution that serves the public. It belongs to the Hospitaller Order of Saint John of God, which manages more than 300 healthcare centers in 50 countries throughout the world and attends the most vulnerable groups in society in hospitals, clinics, social services, healthcare centers, and religious communities.

Through the Saint John of God Foundation, the hospital carries out research to find new and better treatments for pediatric diseases. As a university hospital, it also takes part in training healthcare professionals in collaboration with the University of Barcelona.

One noteworthy example of the Hospital Sant Joan de Déu’s striving for innovation in training is the Darwin Center for Medical Simulation, whose main objective is to improve training for healthcare professionals in the areas of pediatrics and obstetrics through a simulation environment where they can plan and practice a wide variety of diagnostic and therapeutic interventions without involving patients.
