Integration of the health-illness process
The Postgraduate Interdisciplinary Program of Health Sciences is intended to graduates from courses of the biological and health areas, such as: Biological Sciences, Physical Education, Nursing, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Nutrition, Medicine, Psychology and related areas.
The Postgraduate Interdisciplinary Program of Health Sciences has the key purposes of addressing, discussing, understanding and intervening in complex issues that require interdisciplinary analysis, particularly those issues related to health-illness processes of modern society.
The excessive increase of overweight and obese people, along with elderly people, is now associated to the development of several diseases – including dyslipidemia, diabetes mellitus type 2, cardiovascular and renal illnesses, metabolic syndrome, inflammatory diseases (rheumatoid arthritis and sepsis, among others), cicatrization dysfunctions and some kinds of tumors. Other complex illnesses that require an interdisciplinary addressing include those related to neurological disorders and muscular dystrophy. Such diseases are the key study targets of the Postgraduate Interdisciplinary Program of Health Sciences. The Program?s activities are comprehensive, involving basic and applied experiments, in different human and animal cellular models, for a better understanding of the health-illness process.
