At a time when it is affirmed that the new generations are opting for lifestyles without major complications, where the fast, the easy and the simple become selection criteria for making their decisions, it becomes even more relevant to highlight those who resist trends and, on the contrary, increasingly opt for quality, seriousness, for consolidated academic bodies, or for seeking prestige and a solid infrastructure, in the selection of their university. At the University of Medical Sciences, UCIMED, we have not only fought for the quality and excellence of our students, but we have made these values ​​a lifestyle and we have them incorporated into our DNA.

This recognition is not only at the national level, it goes much further and is confirmed by the growing number of students from different parts of the region who join our university community, the international organizations with which we sign agreements, or, with the companies that hire our graduates.
