matters to us

The Fundació Galatea develops programs dedicated, on the one hand, to promoting the skills and abilities of professionals, and on the other to studying their health, lifestyle and working conditions.

Through a broad and varied range of training opportunities that are practical and easy to pursue (workshops, courses, talks and conferences, among others), the Fundació Galatea promotes key ideas regarding care for personal health and the development of the skills and attitudes health professionals need.
