UFCSPA is a college with well-trained professionals and teachers. Despite being a relatively small university, its infrastructure is of the utmost quality, and its students very affectively united.__The Santa Casa Hospital complex, a reference in several fields of medicine in the state, is fundamental for the educational and professional development of the students.__In addition, UFCSPA provides many resources for the student to delve into the field of research both nationally and internationally.__I’m_ graduating in medicine in 2018 and I can say with absolute clarity that it is one of the best colleges in the country and I am proud to say that I graduated from this institution.View more
When I started studying at UFCSPA it had just become a University, although the teaching quality has been famous for decades. Most of the professors has a PhD and the classes were very well organized. The infrastructure kept evolving and became comparable to the best places in the world. The hospital has a mixed public and private system and there were many opportunities for learning in all medicine’s specialties. I believe this University is still evolving, selecting better teachers and offering a progressively better alumni experience.View more
I have been in contact with the University for almost 25 years. In this period, I could see the great growth and expansion for which it undergone, especially in the last 10 years, when she evolved from College to University. I made all my academic and professional training here. Although the University is younger than other institutions of the State, I see it with a great structure and potential. But I believe, as current professor of the University, that the most important thing is the high level of its students. In these last years, I fortunately have been able to experience this very closely and to see the immense potential and capacity that they present.View more
The university is of the highest quality, being distinguished by being exclusively dedicated to the health sciences. The structure is great and the professionals who work there too. The internationalization officials still need to improve some bureaucratic issues, but in general the college is prepared.View more
UFCSPA is a federal university that displays of a modern infrastructure combined with tradition on education, especially when it comes to the medicine’s graduation. Professors are in general very experienced, which provide the students a solid formation based on real practice on health sciences. Definitely, students graduated at UFCSPA leave the university with all the conditions to be excellent doctors, among the best in Brazil. On the other side, the university still lacks investment in the research area, despite some important publications and researches that are already here. The internationalization program is still not compatible with the university’s excellence.View more
UFCSPA is a traditional University, with more than 50 years of history and a huge expansion over the last 10 years. Despite the limited space – one square with 3 buildings and a hospitals complex – UFCSPA is an excellent place to study. It has great infrastructure, a magnificent grade of well qualified teachers.
I chose this University to study after several research and I couldn’t be more pleased about this choice. I found a small, compact and well prepared place to have my graduation. It has great projects on extension – Ginecologics and Obstetrics Academic League and Projeto Rondon were some of the projects I’ve been a part.
It also has a good internalization team made of teachers and another one of students to help students to live experiences all over the world. The Inovation Centre, a place where students can simulate one special equipment and room, is a great place to learn too.
I would definitely recommend this University to anyone who what’s to graduate on a Health Science course.
UFCSPA is a small University (physically speaking) but a HUGE center of opportunities! In fact we have a powerful community and a mutual networking of helping each other. There’s a space for creating a lot of things there you just need to pursue it.
It’s a big soup of future doctors with a great potential. You just need to try
The university is very good, and has the quality of the structure as one of the best advantages, despite having a limited space. The courses are well structured and have qualified teachers. Highly recommend!View more
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.View more
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.
