WELCOME FROM DEAN

Venturing into a university career will always be a challenge, regardless of the area you have chosen. The intellectual requirement of higher education is always accompanied by strong physical and economic sacrifices. However, avidity for knowledge and vocational impulse will always be stronger than obstacles, and whoever has the firm conviction of what he wishes to achieve will never give up.

In the case of Medicine, it can be affirmed that the effort is even greater given the responsibility to which one aspires when it is intended to be in charge of health and even the life of its patients. Who is trained in such a noble profession can not help thinking that every skill and piece of knowledge he acquires will give him an instrument in the future to heal or at least relieve a sick person. But he also assumes the ethical commitment to always do so guided by humanism and a selfless desire to use his science for the sake of others. While the magnitude of the challenge now faced by newcomers to the faculty remains well seated, there is nothing left but to wish them every possible success in their preparation and later in the exercise as doctors.

Dr. Christian Blanco Chan.
Dean Faculty of Medicine.
