In particular, there is an agreement with the Hospital de Barcelona that allows twenty students of bachelor’s degrees in Medicine and Nursing and the dual degree in Pharmacy and Human Nutrition and Dietetics to carry out teaching activities in this centre. Respecting the patients’ privacy at all times, students can study, among other fields, radiology explorations; medicine related to the digestive system; in the intensive care unit and the coronary unit; outpatient surgery; general surgery; orthopaedics; vascular surgery; digestive and respiratory endoscopy; and hospital pharmacy.
An agreement has been signed with the Health Consortium of Alt Penedès i Garraf (CSAPG), which includes Hospital Comarcal Alt Penedès, Hospital Residència Sant Camil and Hospital Sant Antoni Abat — renowned health and training entities in the area. This agreement authorizes the Consortium as a partner healthcare institution of the University. Therefore, students of Medicine, Nursing, Hospital Pharmacy, Human Nutrition and Dietetics, Psychology and Social Work will be able to carry out teaching activities at CSAPG. The agreement does not only show the willingness to collaborate in the teaching field but also the cross-sectional and broad view of health sciences training.

The Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu includes SJD Hospital de Sant Boi, SJD Atenció Intermedia and SJD Xarxa de Salut Mental.
