First Class Training
Few organisations without any actual infrastructures offer training at such a high-level as that offered by the International Virtual University – Medical Campus of Monaco (UMVM). Mirroring the image of the Principality, only UMVM can offer first-class training to its students. Its main objective is to complete the high-level training of doctors in their overall practice: scientific training and managing their professional projects.
Whilst university courses, in fact, enable the knowledge and know-how needed to exercise their specialities to be acquired, unfortunately scientists are given little training to create and manage a specialist unit in their field. For this, they have to gain experience from their superiors, but they also have to develop their scientific and entrepreneurial abilities. UMVM responds in a unique way to these specific requirements.
Therefore, within each course the necessary resources are offered to convince not only the scientific jury at the end of their training but also the hospital or health authorities that have to support or accredit a project for a unit or a referral centre. Graduates will also have the necessary weapons to persuade potential investors who will supply the necessary funding for setting up the project. In order to take this matter further, UMVM offers a range of on-line courses as well as meetings at Summer Schools in Monaco and the submission of dissertations.
This submission constitutes the final stage of the programme, after which the official presentation of degrees will take place for all candidates. The programme of excellence provided at UMVM is, in fact, accredited by certificating organisations and enables everyone to be recognised within the profession by his/her peers.
The use of a Learning Management System (LMS) by UMVM does not mean that training courses are limited to offering a plethora of centralised information; on the contrary, this LMS offers a whole range of tools and facilities that are available to students. They enable students to have a systematic linear access to facts as well as to acquire a progressive knowledge that is both linear and translational.
