To continue giving future medical graduates a world-class education, the International Program was developed by the School of Medicine at the Universidad de Navarra as a complement to the Medical Degree. This program educates students with a comprehensive global vision through its specialized coursework, the English language, and international clinical rotations.
The first promotion of this program began in the 2013-2014 academic year and its academic offer continues to grow each year.
The benefits of choosing this program include:
Nearly 50% of subjects in the first and second years of the Medical Degree are taught in English
A global medical vision and experience through interna
tional clinical rotations with our partner university hospitals (restricted number of spots for the best students)
Exclusive opportunities to work with international specialists in intensive workshops
Deeper medical reasoning and diagnostic skills through case-based teaching methodology
Up-to-date medical knowledge and research opportunities through access to international medical journals and databases
In addition, first and second-year students of the International Program are privileged to participate in the Summer Course, a faculty-led study tour to an international destination, as a week-long study abroad experience. This experience integrates both an intensive academy environment and also cultural learning experiences.
The International Program also helps students with self-evaluation relative to international standards. For example, the School of Medicine has special permission to offer its students the International Foundations of Medicine exam (IFOM), organized by the US National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME). The IFOM exam is aimed to give students a performance evaluation relative to USMLE Step 1. The USMLE score will determine if it is possible to access the residency matching program in the USA.
