Medical education and clinical training in Portugal
Implementation of the Irish National Framework for Doctoral Education
"Portuguese higher education has been in transition for some time, following an OECD report in 2006 and a coordinated evaluation by EUA. A number of Bologna reforms were passed into law, but their implementation has been compromised by the financial crisis and the ensuing austerity measures. By 2012, it was clear that a fundamental re-think of the HE system was necessary. CRUP invited EUA expert team, drawn from Spain, Switzerland and UK, to offer a “view from the outside”. The EUA team’s recommendations provided a powerful stimulus to the domestic debate on the future of the Portuguese higher education system, to which the government is now responding."
