School of Medicine


Since our beginnings as a School of Medicine, our goal has been training health professionals committed to care and maintenance of health and wellbeing, both in the community and hospital environments, while reinforcing institutional values and fostering leadership, research and health promotion.

Providing our future professionals with the knowledge, skills and abilities, as well as the necessary viewpoints, that will allow them to be competent and competitive in any environment or situation they may need to manage, both locally and globally.

Internationalization is one of our strengths. The international agreements and conventions of our School allow our future doctors the opportunity to learn about Medicine in different areas of the world and the possibility of comparing our Health System and undergraduate professional training with that of other countries.

On behalf of our faculty, staff and students, welcome to the UNIBE Medical School.

As Deputy Dean, I am proud of the ongoing tradition of providing hands-on, experience-based education and training, which our school has maintained since its founding days. The program prepares students to become leaders with the moral depth, compassion, and intellectual know-how required to face the challenges of a critical transition of society.

The UNIBE School of Medicine offers unique opportunities for students to participate in community-oriented activities, local and international clinical rotations and scholarly concentrations; optimal experiences for students to put their education into practice. Fundamental to the success of our students are the decades of leadership and knowledge that our educators bring, based on their extensive field experience. Creativity, compassion and leadership are the top qualities we seek in future students and in our faculty, administrators and all those who take part in making our Medical School what it is today.
