We would like the VHIR to become consolidated as an academic institution of reference at an international level and to be recognised for the quality and innovation of our teaching in the area of biomedical research. We want to train professionals of excellence, recognised for their expertise, commitment and capacity to contribute to the success of the translational biomedical research of the future and become leaders.


The Teaching Strategic Plan for 2021-2025 establishes the following strategic lines:

  • Deliver quality training at all levels.
  • Provide visibility and promote the training capacity of VHIR.
  • Internationalise the training offer.
  • Conceptualise the processes to obtain an efficient and sustainable management model.

Since 2013 the VHIR is a University Research Institute attached to the Autonomous University of Barcelona and has its own teaching structure and academic organisation, enabling it to deliver official university training at first degree and postgraduate levels, as well as ongoing training and specialised courses. The interdisciplinary talent, international projection, and scientific production indicators of the lecturers and researchers of the VHIR guarantee the quality of our teaching.
