Since then, it has attained the highest standards in the training of physicians and specialists in Chile and Latin America.  

Mission & vision


UC’s School of Medicine as one of the most prestigious medical schools in the country is compromised with excellence in teaching, innovation and health care, but also with the importance of global citizenship.
