SNIES: 1816 | Qualified registration: Resolution 3204 of March 13, 2014
The CES University General Surgery program was created in 1985, since then it trains general surgeons with the highest quality standards, not only scientific but also human. It is recognized for its academic demand and for its enormous strength in the area of minimally invasive surgery. It has a teaching group of excellence and different fields of practice recognized for their quality, which allows the resident to develop the necessary skills for the proper performance of the general surgeon nationally and internationally.
We offer a dynamic curriculum, open and ready to the changes that society demands due to new knowledge, new social realities, new behaviors, in order to minimize the various risks to people’s health.
This dynamism allows us to offer a curriculum focused on new local, regional, national and, again, international realities, in the educational, pedagogical, scientific and technical aspects.
