Universidad CES, makes available the Competency Training Center -CTC-, with logistic and technological characteristics unique 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 increasing challenges to ensure adequate quality in the training of health professionals. To this end, Universidad CES has adapted its curricula, implementing various teaching, learning and evaluation strategies that allow managing the quality of its study programs in undergraduate, postgraduate and academic extension activities.

In competency education 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 skills that the professional must show in the context of their professional performance, being clear that professional training is not conceived only as

the accumulation of knowledge or skills, but as the ability to act, intervene and decide in situations not always provided; thus shifting the focus of attention from the qualifications towards professional competences.
