The Health Department in Dénia hosts a dozen students of medicine and nursing from the Erasmus program each year, thanks to a collaboration agreement with the Catholic University of Valencia.
This year the hospital is providing formation training for 5 students including two from the UK, two from Columbia and one from France. The students are specializing in Dermatology, Emergency, Surgery, Pediatrics, Diagnostic Imaging and Gynecology.
The hospital has also taken on 5 nurses with the program, three from Finland and two from Norway performing various services within the department and who will be practicing until mid December.
ERASMUS students spend three months in the town of Denia, practicing in the hospital. The initiative to bring students to Denia, where there is no university infrastructure has been taken by Marina Salud, the company that manages the hospital.
