The Abel Salazar Biomedical Sciences Institute (ICBAS) is part of the University of Oporto and is an university school and teaching center, a scientific research center, a culture center and also provides services to the general population.

About Us

ICBAS was created in 1975 after the portuguese Carnation Revolution ("25th of April") by a group of individuals from the University of Oporto (Corino de Andrade, Nuno Grande, Ruy Luís Gomes). The structure and the teaching methods of this university were inspired by the work of its patron: Abel Salazar (physician, lecturer, researcher, writer and painter; 1889-1946).


Since its beginning the school has emphasized the importance of multidisplinarity in higher education. The motto for the school is "a doctor that only knows about medicine, not even about medicine knows".
The Veterinary Medicine degree became an Integrated Masters Degree in 2007 and students are currently taught in the following fields of veterinary medicine: Basic Sciences; Clinical Sciences; Animal Production; Food Hygiene/Safety and Public Health. The day one skills for the ICBAS' Integrated Masters Degree in Veterinary Medicine are available here: [1]
