The UFCSPA is a university focused on health sciences, grouping on a single campus several area courses. This characteristic yields more and more good results, favoring the exchange of multiprofessional experiences and creating a cohesive and integrated student community.
The campus is splendid and glued to one of the largest and most important hospital complexes in the country, with seven hospitals that are national references in several areas, where UFCSPA students have privileged access to teaching, research and extension activities.
It is a relatively new and still small university, although it is already very traditional in Porto Alegre, so we are observing it in its growth phase … Especially in recent years, great advances are being pursued and achieved in areas of research, extension and internationalization. So we can already glimpse even better comments from those who will still know the UFCSPA.
I studied medicine at UFCSPA for 5 years and I consider it an excellent college. The physical part is well enough, except for the lack of rooms in some periods mainly for meetings and extraclass activities. We have a good library, computers on different floors, cleanliness, ambiance and aesthetics all brand new. We have improved, as far as possible, the encouragement of science and scientific production. Good teachers and adequate precepts in most disciplines and internships. A curriculum framework that has been updated and improved despite still faults. A criticism that has improved in recent years but which is still a problem for me is the lack of space for students to participate in the construction of the university, we do not have much space in commissions, bureaucratization to carry out extension activities, lack of annual evaluation in courses and disciplines and difficulty performing elective placements outside the curriculum.
Despite these difficulties, I was able to participate in some commissions, extension projects and internships in other places.
Brazilian student of the 5th year of Medicine at UFCSPA.
I can guarantee that it is a Brazilian university of great quality and excellence. One of the strengths is its specificity in the area of health, with excellent teachers and infrastructure. Inserted in one of the most complete hospital complexes of the country, it counts on 7 hospitals of diverse areas. A university that has been progressively investing more in research and graduate studies, with a building recently opened only for this purpose. One of his weaknesses is his weak relationship with his school hospital, which often does not know or value the gains brought by the presence of scholars, doctoral students and residents in the hospital complex of Santa Casa.
I am an international student at UFCSPA and I will be graduating next summer.
Over the past 6 years that I’ve been in this institution, I have learned more than just medicine. I am a true believer that doctor and medical education need to be revolutionized. In my school, I found that we need to stop thinking about medicine as a business and rather as a right for all beings. That education needs to be made for the people first and not necessarily for the industry and that doctors serve these people, our community.
I have the privilege to study in a unique public university with a prestigious past, With an envisioned future and with a great endeavor to move forward. An incredible campus, a humane staff and where science meets humanity.
I must say that although we did have struggles (and we do all) I don’t regret anything and encourage others to pursue their dreams here
