Student Assistance and Development 

Promotional activities

Lectures are given on the trends in Health Sciences so that those who are interested can gain a broad perspective on the growth options provided by our five majors.  As well as tours of our different facilities.

Student support and counseling (Tutoring)

Medical degrees are highly demanding and can promote the accumulation of stress and cause states of anguish in students, resulting in an inability to exploit 100 % of their potential. Therefore, this department offers a listening space so that our students can perform adequately and adapt more quickly to their new academic demands. 

Assignments for Students in Scholarship Service

Our students who have some type of academic scholarship must complete 5 hours per week of scholarship service. All these students are assigned to the Department of Student Assistance and Development. They are usually assigned to teachers and researchers from our School so that they can participate in different activities. In this way, they not only fulfill an obligation, but it also becomes a learning space, since they are collaborating with different health professionals. 

Propaedeutic Course

Every year, the weekend before classes begin, a two-day propaedeutic course is offered, where new students are given the necessary tools so that they can adapt quickly to the educational model of the school. Additionally, this space allows them to interact with each other before classes. 

Professional Commitment Ceremony 

An event in which the students take an oath on their commitment as future health professionals, as well as receiving their first lecture, always provided by a special guest.

Clinical Simulation

04. - SMHS

Clinical Simulation

Medical simulation is an innovative teaching technique that reinforces the student’s knowledge through the design and execution of clinical scenarios or situations where they can maximize their critical reasoning and decision-making in 100% safe and controlled environments, under a patient-centered learning and competency system. We have low, medium, and high-fidelity simulators where they can carry out, from isolated procedures to the complete management of emergency, pediatrics, and obstetrics cases, among others.  

The task of the Department of Clinical Simulation is to allow Medical students, both undergraduate and graduate, and those from other careers in the health area, to carry out various activities and complex cases to improve their level of learning, teamwork, ethical management, assertive response capacity, and clinical practice.
