While staying in Brazil, the foreigner will be allowed to use the services of the Brazilian Public Health System only in emergency cases.
For this reason, Universidade de São Paulo demands that students obtain a health insurance (travel insurance), which should be purchased at their home country, prior to their arrival in Brazil. It should cover all the period during which the student will stay in the country. The choice for the travel insurance is up to the student.
The USP/FZEA also has a medical and odontological team for eventual cases of needs of students and researchers.
