With more than 12,000 medical graduates, the international #MedUNAV Alumni Network continues to grow every year. Our graduates have developed their medical careers in France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, United Kingdom, Spain, USA, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Singapore and India… #MedUNAV’s global footprint is measured by many generations of doctors working all over the world practicing their profession with a vocation of service to the patients; values they learned while studying medicine at the Universidad de Navarra. These are some of our graduates:
The Universidad de Navarra encourages you to broaden your horizons and have a spirit of overcoming with high aspirations. As a student, I learned the importance of excellent training to be able to work at the highest level, scientific rigor, and the emphasis on the centrality of the person.
In the summer of my fourth year I had the opportunity to do an observation rotation at Georgetown University Hospital which gave me a different perspective on working and how to learn. I was amazed at the resources they had, the way medicine was taught, and above all, the incredible autonomy and maturity of the US students. It was that experience that made me decide to do my residency in the USA.
The University of Navarra gave me the opportunity to meet people from many places in Spain, even from other countries. Some of my teachers were trained in international hospitals and shared their experiences with us. In addition, the University of Navarra allowed us to study for a year in another European country. I think that somehow, this has kept my mind more open to options in the future.

In my opinion, there are three values that define medical training at the University of Navarra. The first is an intimate contact with basic and clinical research due to the school’s close proximity to the Center for Applied Medical Research. The second is the early encounter with real clinical situations. The third is all the training is done with a Christian humanistic influence.
