MEDICINE

Medicine and Surgery

To venture in a university major will always be a challenge, regardless of the area that was chosen. The intellectual demand of higher education is accompanied by great sacrifices, mental, physical and economic. Nonetheless, the voracity for knowledge and the vocational impulse will always be stronger than the obstacles, and those who have a strong conviction in what they wish to accomplish won’t ever desist.

In the case of Medicine, you can assure that the effort is even greater due to the responsibility you aspire to when you wish to be in charge of your patient’s health, and even their lives. Those who are trained in such noble profession can’t stop thinking that every skill and piece of knowledge acquired will give them an instrument to heal or, at least, relieve the sick, always assuming the ethical commitment to do so and guided by the humanism and a selfless desire to use the science for the sake of everyone’s well-being. Having stablished the magnitude of the challenge that the school’s newcomers face, there’s nothing left but to wish them the best in their preparation and later in the exercise as doctors.

Description of the Program

Mobirise

Our Medicine program integrates basic and clinical sciences sequentially. It is distinguished by an intense content of exact sciences followed by the sciences dedicated to the structure and function of the human body, namely Anatomy, Neuroanatomy, Embryology, Histology and Physiology. With these bases, the student is introduced to clinical sciences in which, through hospital practices, develops skills in obtaining medical history and physical examination in the basic specialties (Surgery, Gynecology / Obstetrics, Medicine, Pediatrics and Psychiatry).

Throughout the plan, there are also several courses to sensitize the student in the field of public health and primary care, always promoting the projection to the community. Finally, and being the research an institutional guideline, the plan includes courses that prepare the student for the methodology of biomedical research, bioethics and even for a final research project, necessary to graduate.
