Each year, the University of Toulon offers nearly 11,000 students general or professional training in a broad disciplinary field.
Although there is no Faculty of Medicine within it, the higher education establishment in Toulon has managed, over the years, to create a para-health training center in partnership with recognized health professionals such as Michel Delage, Cynthia Fleury or Boris Cyrulnik. This is organized around training aimed at professionals already in activity or aimed at people who want to retrain so that they can increase their skills in a given topic. To meet a particular need of society and more particularly of the territory, educational models evolve every year. Today, this training center revolves around 5 University Degrees (DU): · DU Ethology: clinical attachment and family systems Created by Boris Cyrulnik and Michel Delage
“This DU aims at training in the observation of interactions in family ecosystems, having as theoretical axis the most up-to-date knowledge about attachment. It is an interface between Biology, Ethology and Psychology. The teaching is particularly aimed at improving all those for whom the relational dimension of their profession is important: doctors, magistrates, caregivers, educators, teachers. » Michel Delage, psychiatrist and head of education.
· The IUD Accompanying, from procreation to birth Made by Magali Dieux and Pascale Duché – with the participation of Cynthia Fleury (intervener in the IUD) they dream of being. They expect this from work or family, forgetting that nothing can bring us happiness or fulfillment except self-determination. This can be made possible by our ability to embody the values of our future. As this future is no longer realized collectively by a luminous social project or by political or religious ideologies, we only have the path that we can trace through culture and encounters. This IUD proposes to enrich our culture of “perinatal professionals” and experiment with new postures and new communication and monitoring tools that allow us to rediscover pleasure at work and with the family. » Magali Dieux, founder of the association Naître enchantés. Aware of the psychological exhaustion felt by healthcare professionals, educational managers integrated teaching modules this year to allow them to break free and avoid burnout. An approach that will be accentuated from the next school year. · The Child Protection DU Led by Emmanuel Aragon and with the support and participation of Florence Brizio – Head of ODPE – Department of Childhood and Family
Created in partnership with the Department, this University Diploma has the triple objective of equipping professionals interested in specialization, in improving prevention, in supporting families and in the care of children, to establish a common culture between all the partners involved in the field of child protection. .
· DU Palliative Care Supported by Alain Guillotin and Dominique Valliccioni, Physician, Head of the palliative care unit and mobile palliative care team at the Centro Hospitalar Intercomunal de Toulon-La Seyne.
This University Diploma in Palliative Care allows professionals working with end-of-life patients to deepen their knowledge in the field of biomedical sciences and the humanities to develop an approach centered on the person at the end of life, in their family, social and cultural context. .
Opened in Toulon for over 10 years, Palliative Care DU participates in the training of caregivers in the issue of caring for patients in palliative situations. This training is supervised by health professionals and research professors. This diploma allows for an in-depth and innovative reflection on strategies to care for all patients and patients in palliative situations.
Multidisciplinary training addresses all aspects of the palliative approach, whether clinical, legal, ethical or even philosophical. In addition, the diversity of speakers and participants makes it possible to cross the views and experiences of each one.

This DU is intended for professionals supervising athletes with disabilities so that they can better support them in their quest for performance.
