We believe that health sciences education can change our communities, country and region. We’ve been striving for excellence for over 45 years because we believe that we can make a difference in the world.
Dra. María del Carmen García
When the University of Medical Sciences was created, its founders had an extremely important motivation: to train young people in careers in health sciences under the highest and most solid quality standards and, in this way, guarantee excellent professionals to the country. That inspiration and that commitment today… 45 years later remain intact.
Our greatest satisfaction lies in the titles that our graduates proudly display in their offices, laboratories, clinics, pharmacies and many other places of work, because we are certain that each one of them works with passion, ethics, with capacity and with deep knowledge, since they were formed with excellence.
Today, continuing to honor this commitment poses great challenges and high demands, and for this reason, at UCIMED we spare no effort or resources to ensure our students the infrastructure, teaching capacity, academic content, alliances, technology, and everything that is required, to guarantee that solid training that prepares them for the best performance and, as is currently required, that they be globalized professionals.
As rector of this University, which I carry in my heart, I invite you to get to know us, to learn about our careers and courses, to share the thousands and thousands of professional success stories that accompany our graduates, to be part of the satisfaction that day Our students reflect on a daily basis, since we are united by pride and the motivation to guarantee the patient the conditions for a better quality of life, thanks to the humanization, comprehensiveness and quality of care they receive.
