Faculdade de Medicina - FM

Logo
A Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo (FMUSP) foi fundada oficialmente em 24 de novembro de 1891, de acordo com a Lei nº 19, como 'Academia de Medicina, Cirurgia e Pharmácia'; a aula inaugural foi realizada anos mais tarde, em 1913, quando foi rebatizada como Faculdade de Medicina e Cirurgia de São Paulo, sendo designada como Faculdade de Medicina de São Paulo em 1925 e incorporada à Universidade de São Paulo em 1934.

A FMUSP está vincula ao Sistema FMUSP-HC, que é o maior do país e também o maior centro assistencial da América Latina, compreendendo, além da Faculdade de Medicina, institutos especializados no atendimento de alta complexidade (atenção terciária), hospital de média complexidade (atenção secundária), hospitais auxiliares, unidades especializadas no atendimento integral de pacientes portadores de HIV/AIDS, Centro de Saúde Escola (atenção primária), Unidades Básicas de Saúde (atenção primária), Laboratórios de Investigação Médica (LIMs) e Fundação de Apoio.

Atualmente a FMUSP atua na graduação e pós-graduação de médicos, fisioterapeutas, fonoaudiólogos e terapeutas ocupacionais com sólida formação geral e básica, além de promover o treinamento nos três níveis de atenção à saúde.

Entre as atividades realizadas na FMUSP estão pesquisa e desenvolvimento na área da saúde, além de pesquisa básica e clínica e o oferecimento de ensino, pesquisa e atividades de cultura e extensão, tendo como prioridade o investimento em pesquisa científica e sua reversão para projetos de assistência social.

    LARYNGOSCOPE, v.131, n.11, p.E2770-E2776, 2021

    Objective To determine the implication of the new AJCC staging system for pT classification in a cohort of patients with SCC of the lip mucosa and compare it to other oral cavity sites. Methods Retrospective cohort of 744 patients treated between 2002 and 2017, by the Head and Neck Surgery Depart...

  3. The effects of treadmill exercise in animal models of Parkinson's disease: A systematic review

    NEUROSCIENCE AND BIOBEHAVIORAL REVIEWS, v.131, p.1056-1075, 2021

    Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive disabling brain disorder. Physical exercise has been shown to alleviate the symptoms of PD and, consequently, improve patient quality of life. Exercise mechanisms involved in beneficial effects on PD have been widely investigated. This study aims to syste...

  4. Machine Learning for Prediction of Stable Warfarin Dose in US Latinos and Latin Americans

    FRONTIERS IN PHARMACOLOGY, v.12, article ID 749786, 13p, 2021

    Populations used to create warfarin dose prediction algorithms largely lacked participants reporting Hispanic or Latino ethnicity. While previous research suggests nonlinear modeling improves warfarin dose prediction, this research has mainly focused on populations with primarily European ancestr...

  5. Proximity of schools to roads and students' academic performance: A cross-sectional study in the Federal District, Brazil

    ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, v.202, article ID 111770, 7p, 2021

    Investigations of the educational implications of children's exposure to air pollutants at school are crucial to enhance our understanding of the hazards for children. Most of the existing literature is based on studies performed in North America and Europe. Further investigation is required in l...

  6. Regadenoson-induced T-wave heterogeneity complements coronary stenosis detection by myocardial perfusion imaging in men and women

    EUROPEAN HEART JOURNAL-CARDIOVASCULAR IMAGING, v.22, n.11, p.1341-1349, 2021

    Aims We analysed whether incorporating electrocardiographic interlead T-wave heterogeneity (TWH) with myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) during pharmacologic stress improves detection of flow-limiting lesions (FLL). Methods and results Medical records of all 103 patients at our institution who un...

  7. Warm-Up Intensity Does Not Affect the Ergogenic Effect of Sodium Bicarbonate in Adult Men

    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF SPORT NUTRITION AND EXERCISE METABOLISM, v.31, n.6, p.482-489, 2021

    This study determined the influence of a high- (HI) versus low-intensity (LI) cycling warm-up on blood acid-base responses and exercise capacity following ingestion of sodium bicarbonate (SB; 0.3 g/kg body mass) or a placebo (PLA; maltodextrin) 3 hr prior to warm-up. Twelve men (21 +/- 2 years, 7...
