Why Study Medicine
Since 1954, the Universidad de Navarra has offered a degree in Medicine with a clear objective to prepare medical professionals with the following attributes:
• The ability to pursue specialized training anywhere in the world as a result of receiving the most advanced knowledge and clinical skills to diagnose, treat, and prevent the most prevalent diseases.
• To be endowed with a deep respect for human rights, in particular for the dignity of each human being and their family, from conception until natural death.
• Develop scientific interest in Biomedicine to allow international participation in translational research.
• Capable of establishing good interpersonal communication and team-working skills through honesty, responsibility, and the spirit of solidarity and service.
Considered a pioneer institution in Spain, the School of Medicine at the University of Navarra (#MedUNAV) was one the first to create inter-faculty departments and to integrate medical-surgical programs. #MedUNAV is reinforced by its inseparable union with the Clínica Universidad de Navarra, the first hospital in Spain to be accredited by the Joint International Commission as a university hospital. The Medical School is equally enriched by the Centro de Investigación Médica Aplicada, home to first class scientific research focused on serving the patient.
The School of Medicine focuses all its efforts on the students by providing a complete experience that includes teaching, health-care, and cutting-edge research. We strive to offer an educational model that provides innovative solutions for current challenges. The university aspires to have a campus setting that fosters students to take initiative and play an active role in their personal and professional development.
