Quality Control Standards

The School of Medicine at the University of Navarra considers it essential to guarantee the quality of the degree programs and services it offers. One example of this commitment is its participation in the ANECA Institutional Assessment Plan (the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation in Spain), which has evaluated the Degree in Medicine program.

The School of Medicine has also established an Internal Quality Control System (SGIC) as part of the first edition of the ANECA AUDIT program. This monitors all the School's activities in order to enhance the quality and continuous improvement of all the official degree programs (undergraduate degree, master's degrees and doctoral program) and services it offers. The School uses reviews and continuous improvement strategies to develop and monitor its activities, revising and redefining them according to the needs and expectations of its stakeholders, in order to achieve the expected results.

The School of Medicine has a Quality Assurance Committee created and regulated by the School's Management Committee. This body is responsible for monitoring and guaranteeing the quality of the School and coordinating the SGIC's planning and monitoring tasks. The Quality Assurance Committee is also a channel for communication on the School's quality policy and objectives, ensuring the university community is aware of them and complies with them.
