In the school period about to begin, he explained, 385 students will enter the first year of the medical career, the most historically incorporated; followed by the degree in Nursing with projection of enrollment of 140 young people, said the rector.

Higher Education includes seven other careers, including Clinical Bioanalysis, Rehabilitation and Health, Hygiene and Epidemiology, Medical Imaging and Radiophysics, Health Rehabilitation and Health Information System; the latter added since the previous course.
