Introduction

One of the goals of UNICAL is to facilitate a better health care in Latin America and the Caribbean Region. To this end, UNICAL has developed, in alliance with other Universities and Medical Schools in the Region, undergraduate and graduate programs that will:

  • Provide educational opportunities to Health Care professionals in their own countries, through our alliances with local and regional universities, so that they can improve their competencies and hence the quality of the health services they provide
  • Promote the exchange of students, faculty and knowledge among different countries, to enrich every other’s competence in particular fields of health care
  • Provide study-abroad opportunities for high school graduates as well as for recently graduated professionals interested in getting an international health care education that they can later bring back to their own countries
