CICS-UBI participates actively in advance training activities, providing a set of training opportunities for researchers in health sciences. Although CICS-UBI is not a degree conferring body, it supports several MSc and PhD programs in close collaboration with UBI Faculties and Departments.

CICS-UBI also actively stimulates the integration of youngsters in research by organizing the summer internships of “Ciência Viva” and offering national and international scientific exchange programs for biomedical, biochemistry, medicine and pharmaceutical sciences students that includes the collaboration with the International Federation of Medical Students Associations (IFMSA) and the International Pharmaceutical Student's Federation (IPSF).
