Porto Alegre, March 26, 2020.
The IBCMED Faculty understands the concern with the future of its Post-Graduation. The institution studied the best ways to continue bringing professional updating to students, in this period of the Covid-19 pandemic. That is why, in this month of April the classes will continue in a telepresencial way.
We prepare a digital environment with greater interactivity. Thus, students will be more connected to the faculty and their colleagues, a complete classroom within a modern platform. The telepresential classes will have frequency validated through activities in a digital environment, as well as the meetings will be included in the timetable.
This is a temporary class method, and will not affect the duration of the course and the student's certification. The practical modules will be carried out after this national quarantine period, as for these modules it is essential to have the student in a technical environment, facilitating the learning process for medical practices, which require a simulator or other equipment.
Recalling that we are following recommendations from the Ministry of Education, provided for in ordinance 343/2020. We want to continue offering you the most modern in the field of Health, and for that we need to adapt to this phase in which we are living. Any changes will be communicated to the students in advance.
Porto Alegre, March 20, 2020.
The IBCMED Faculty has been showing its concern, since the beginning of the Covid-19 outbreak, for following the guidelines and recommendations of the official bodies, in favor of the welfare and safety of students. However, the Institution did not rest until it found a way to enable students to continue enjoying classes and content. In this way, face-to-face meetings will be replaced by face-to-face meetings from Monday (23/03) until the 19th of April, any changes will be communicated to the students in advance.
Ordinance 343/2020 of the Ministry of Education (MEC) in no way approves face-to-face classes during this period of containment of the Covid-19 pandemic. Thus, understanding the MEC guidelines, we plan the best way to benefit our students. The telepresential classes will have frequency validated through activities in a digital environment, as well as the meetings will appear in the timetable.
The student will receive access to classes through a link, which will be forwarded by email (check the SPAM box) and / or to your class group on WhatsApp. Educational materials will also be made available to assist you in your studies during this period. This new temporary class model will not affect the duration of the course and the student's certification; the same in relation to the practical modules. The moment requires adaptation and collaboration from us.
Remembering that this is a decision made for the benefit of the student, due to the proportion caused by the new Coronavirus. As soon as the situation is normalized we will continue with your course schedule. We can't wait to have our students in class again.
Thank you for understanding,
