Admission to the Master Degree in Comprehensive Urgent and Emergency Care

This pre-enrollment and enrollment process is different from the other master degrees offered by the school.

Application process

In order to process the pre-enrollment, the following documentation must be attached:

  • Bank receipt as proof of payment of pre-enrollment fee or the full master degree tuition fee
  • Résumé with a current photograph
  • Certified photocopy of the university degree certificate or of the receipt of certificate in medicine or nursing
  • Certified photocopy of ID card or passport
  • Two passport size photos in color
  • Original documentation accrediting professional experience in urgent and/or emergency care (optional)

Places are reserved by chronological order of enrollment with the corresponding payment of the pre-enrollment fee and, subsequently, the total master degree tuition fee.


Payment for enrollment can be made in full or in installments by bank transfer. Enrollment to the master degree is deemed null and void if the required documentation has not been submitted and at least the pre-enrollment fee has been paid (this fee will be deducted from the total tuition fee). The pre-enrollment fee will only be refunded in the event that the student is not admitted in the candidate selection process. The IEM offers students master degree financing schemes with special conditions through the banks La Caixa, Banco Sabadell, Bankia and TargoBank.

The final reservation of the place will be made effective once the corresponding pre-enrollment fee has been paid. The IEM does not guarantee that this training activity will go ahead unless a minimum number of students are enrolled. In the event that the maximum number of students who can enroll is exceeded, the academic board of the master degree will establish a selection process. The order of enrollment, the total payment of the master degree tuition fee, seniority of certification and experience in urgent and emergency care will be determining factors, in order to preserve the educational quality of the activity.
