Training and sharing knowledge
The transmission of knowledge is a founding mission of Institut Curie, in the same way as care and research. Institut Curie offers high-quality teaching to share its expertise and keep pace with the constant developments in research and medicine.
Master's students, PhDs and post-doctoral fellows, but also medical and nursing students, for all these young scientists, Institut Curie is a real place for the transmission of knowledge.
The courses offered by Institut Curie do not lead to a degree, but some are included in the training programmes of partner universities.
In collaboration with its researchers and physicians, Institut Curie organizes international courses given by world-renowned specialists for master's students, PhDs and postdoctoral fellows. Most of these courses are validated as European university modules and give right to ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System).
