Here students have the opportunity to practice the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that teachers apply to their patients.

Currently, the program of the Degree in Medicine is mainly based on competence-based learning, while it is focused on learning where students develop skills that prepare them to be able to respond to the health needs in the ever-changing environment. The above mentioned goes along with an ethical and humanitarian aspect as well as a solid base in scientific research.
