We recognise that the coronavirus has caused a large number of schools and universities across the world to close and review how exams are going to be held and the awarding of qualifications, as well as the planning of next courses studies.

We are working hard to provide the clear answers that you need as quickly as possible and we assure you that we will continue to be in touch with you over the coming months with further updates through this website and emails.
The situation is evolving rapidly. You should visit and regularly check the following websites for the latest updates and guidance:

Official information in Spain:
Since the beginning of March, following the European Union and Spanish Health authorities dictates, some of our courses and Master’s & Diplomas’ on-site modules have been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. The safety, health and well-being of our students will always be the highest priority for us.
Clearly, for those who have been registered for the postponed events, the postponement is a fully equivalent replacement for the planned events and the registration fees will remain in place for the new events dates.
More information about the postponed events here.
Our learning method, based in a semi-presential and modular courses, offers us the possibility to keep the constant contact with our students through our online campus, an e-learning area that provides quality peer-reviewed information in a dynamic and interactive format.
Our Educational board carried out detailed planning to provide the best possible learning experience under the current circumstances and, taking advantage of the coronavirus global lockdown, we have developed an innovative learning tool: Webinars by RMES. This tool has allowed us to maintain the networking and the continued learning of our students.
Webinars by RMES: With the aim to follow with our educational programme, interrupted by the COVID-19 outbreak, we purpose a programme of webinars that will last at least while the end of the deadlock situation.
All the content of the webinar series (commented video-surgeries, keynote lectures and complex cases discussions with the masters of microsurgery) is free for RMES community (faculty, students and alumni) and is also open to the entire medical community at a low price.
More information about Webinars by RMES here.
Despite all our efforts, the postgraduate students who were supposed to take their final exam, to present their Master’s Thesis and finish their clinical immersion this May, will not be able to finish their studies this year.
But, to reduce the risk of students being disadvantaged by coronavirus, University has extended one year their registration for the Master’s Degrees and Postgraduate Diplomas for free, so they will be able to finish their studies on June 2021 at most.
POST-PANDEMIC PREVENTION MEASURES:
…and much more!
According to the European Union guidelines, travelling should have been completely restored by September, when the 2020/2021 academic year is supposed to start. This is why we have planned the next edition of our Master’s Degrees and Postgraduate Diplomas according our educational programme.
Despite this, part of the modules content will be shared to our students through RMES e-learning tools: the online campus and the webinars platform, allowing our students to follow the theoretical content on their students through their internet connection.
FACE-TO-FACE MODULE AND COVID-19 PANDEMIC MEASURES:
COVID-19 testing (48h previous to the course’s first day) would be required.
If a student cannot attend a face-to-face module due to the COVID-19 pandemic travel restrictions,
she / he will have the possibility to take the module by streaming.
If a face-to-face module could not be held for the COVID-19 restrictions, it will be postponed to a later date.
