The CES University, committed to excellence, makes the Competences Training Center -CEC- available, with unique logistical and technological characteristics in the country, which will allow all users to obtain the best results in academic training by applying the highest standards quality.

Teaching, rotations and practices

The continuous changes experienced in the biomedical sciences and in society have been generating growing challenges to ensure adequate quality in the training of health professionals. For this, the CES university has adapted its curricula, implementing various teaching, learning and assessment strategies that allow it to manage the quality of its study programs in undergraduate, graduate and academic extension activities.

In competency training, the human factor is fundamental and the results depend more and more on the adequate mobilization of knowledge, skills and appropriate attitudes, in the identification and solution of the main problems and needs of the population, giving a new meaning to the competences that the professional must show in the context of their professional performance, bearing in mind that professional training is not only conceived as the accumulation of knowledge or skills, but as the ability to act, intervene and decide in situations that are not always foreseen; thus shifting the focus of attention from qualifications to professional competencies.
