Computer Resources


In addition to the physical collection, five computers and a printer are made available to students, with free access to the various databases on specific portals (BIREME, PubMed, Scopus, Embase and Cochrane Library). On these same computers through the CAPES portal, students have full texts available in the scientific journals that make up this collection.

Through the integration with multicentric projects of the Brazilian Network of Studies in Reproductive and Perinatal Health, there are two computers assigned to the coordinators of the research in order to feed the database hosted at OpenClinc. In addition to the growing familiarity with the system, we believe that the database can be shared for new projects.

The clinic located on Rua José Maria Magalhães has an electronic medical record, in which the retrieval of information is very agile, making the collection on paper or the need to search the physical record are practically extinct.

In addition to the resources of the program itself, we have the DIS (Department of Medical Informatics) from UNIFESP, which provides support for other demands, such as building or updating virtual pages and video conferences.

The availability of videoconferencing environments made it possible to organize scientific meetings with members from other centers in the state of São Paulo (UNESP – Botucatu, USP – São Paulo) and other states (UnB – Brasília; UFPR – Curitiba; UFRGS – Porto Alegre; UFRJ- Rio de Janeiro; UFT – Palmas, UNIVASF – Petrolina, UFMT – Cuiabá, UFAM – Manaus). In addition, the meetings on the first Fridays of each month of the Discipline of Fetal Medicine are also held by video conferences, with invited national and international professors.

Since 2013, UNIFESP’s computer sector has also offered the possibility of using the various resources for the composition of boards and evaluation, facilitating the process and reducing costs. In 2016, we started using this technology in the defense of projects and theses of our PG Program, involving national professors from different institutions, in order to reduce the costs arising from face-to-face participation. For 2019 we intend to use this technology for the participation of professors from foreign institutions with public defense in the English language.





Regarding access to information, the program has its own collection, composed of about 120 books available in its libraries located on the 8th floor of Hospital São Paulo and Department of Obstetrics at Rua Napoleão de Barros, 875. In addition, we have a presence on the campus of the Regional Library of Medicine (BIREME), linked to the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). We also provide volumes of the theses defended in the Program, gathered at the Postgraduate Secretariat of the Department of Obstetrics, located at Rua Napoleão de Barros, 875.



Other information


Considering the characteristics of the specialty, the production in the various lines of research has scenarios for its development with structures for assistance (outpatient clinics, wards and obstetric center), diagnostic imaging centers (three-dimensional ultrasound and magnetic resonance) and a laboratory for clinical analysis. In addition to the spaces directly managed by the Department of Obstetrics, the UNIFESP Graduate Dean’s Office allows the sharing of infrastructure installed at the University, maintained and expanded from resources originated from the University’s funding and institutional technical reserve, generated for the fund raising of all the University’s programs. Examples of this integration are the availability of the vivarium for the supply of animals used in experimental research and advanced technology equipment such as flow cytometer, mass spectrophotometer and electron microscopy, among others.

In 2014, the Obstetrics program started to offer the community, through FAPESP resources, three-dimensional ultrasound equipment of the Philips iU22 brand through a project led by Prof. Edward Araujo Júnior. This equipment is part of the multi-user sharing system, whose management committee is composed of Prof. Dr. Edward Araujo Júnior, Prof. Dr. Sérgio Aron Ajzen (diagnostic imaging) and Prof. Dra. Zsuzsanna I. K. Jarmy Di Bella (Department of Gynecology). Access to the equipment is available on the Obstetrics PG Program website at

The Program has the following infrastructure managed by the Department of Obstetrics:

1 – Hospital São Paulo, located at Rua Napoleão de Barros, 715, 8th floor.

2 – Casa da Saúde da Mulher Prof. Domingos Deláscio, Rua Bacelar, 384.

3 – UNIFESP Specialties Clinic, Rua José de Magalhães, 340.

4 – Laboratory of Physiological and Experimental Obstetrics I (Rua Pedro de Toledo, 781 – 4th floor).

5 – Laboratory of Physiological and Experimental II (Rua Pedro de Toledo, 669, 9th floor).

6 – UNIFESP Family Planning Unit, Rua Loefgreen, 1570.

The Program’s administrative center is located at Rua Napoleão de Barros, 875, with a specific room with infrastructure and a secretary with exclusive dedication and experience to meet the demands of students, teachers and integration with the Technical Chamber of Escola Paulista de Medicina e Dean of Graduate Studies at UNIFESP.
