The Final Degree Project (TFG) is a compulsory subject, of 10 ECTS in total, which consists of the elaboration, presentation and defense of a work in order to assess the knowledge acquired throughout the degree and introduce students to research as a method for the search for knowledge applied to the development and improvement of quality in professional practice. This must be presented and defended in public and will always be developed under the supervision of a Director.

This subject is regulated by this teaching plan and by the "General Regulations for Final Degree Project". The object of this regulation is to regulate the TFG that the students carry out in the studies of Degree of the Superior School in Sciences of the Health and that the students have available in the classrooms of moodle and in the Web of TCM
