Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara School of Medicine
UAG School of Medicine is regarded by many as one of the most efficient and well-organized medical schools in Latin America. Students from the United States who went to our school make a significant contribution to our development in both the physical and academic areas. The most important contribution they make, by far, is to themselves. You may be considering the UAG as an alternative to the highly selective and competitive American medical school enrollment system, but you must also work hard to be accepted into the UAG School of Medicine. If you desire to serve your fellow citizens by providing better health care, and if you are a serious student with a capacity for wisdom in dealing with your fellow man, we invite you to join us.
The School of Medicine is an institution engaged in the training and formation of physicians, whose main goal is to improve community health through the following:
Providing medical education
Discovering and adpating medical knowledge
Basic Sciences Curriculum
Your first two years will provide the necessary foundation upon which to build your medical education. Along with the 24 months of the curriculum, UAG students have the opportunity to study 12-16 weeks in the basic sciences review course allowing you to prepare to take and to pass the USMLE Step 1.
Clinical Skills and Clinical Competencies are honed during your first four semesters. The unique and favorable opportunity beginning in your first semester to face real patients during your participation in our Program of Medicine in the Community reinforces these skills. In order to participate in the Clinical clerkships of the Clinical curriculum, you first must acquire your Certification of Basic Clinical Skills indicating that you are prepared.
Clinical Science Curriculum
Your first four semesters will provide a gradual transition into language fluency. Students build on the basic foundations of the Spanish language as they progress through the basic sciences years, acquiring the proficiency and technical knowledge that is needed to be truly fluent. Learn more
Fifth- and sixth- semester students rotate through our Clinical Campus and through more than 100 affiliated hospitals in Mexico. Students in the seventh and eighth semesters have the option of rotating in Mexico or selecting one of the Off-Campus programs offered through affiliated hospitals and medical schools in the United States and Puerto Rico.
UAG students are able to participate in programs developed by the Curriculum committee - Co-op, Electives in U.S.A. and Mexico-Electives. Students that participate in these programs must demonstrate the required talent and clinical skills to work in a hospital setting. Additionally, they must do self-study without having to attend their regular courses in the Guadalajara Clinical Campus during the seventh and eighth semesters.
A fee is required from participating students in order to maintain the quality of these programs, to provide financial support and to open additional programs in other areas. Purchase of malpractice insurance is also required.
NOTE: Payments for the Co-op, Electives and the Mal Practice Insurance will NOT be reimbursed should a student decide later on that he/she will not attend the program, has requested a transfer, or is rejected or expelled by the hospital.
