Studies in Medicine are currently facing two major challenges: adaptation to new social demands, such as an increase in life expectancy, reduction in childbirth and an aging population with chronic and degenerative diseases, as well as adaptation to the demands of the European Higher Education Area. The Faculty of Medicine of the UAB has therefore restructured its syllabus with the aim of developing a competence-based curriculum , adapted to the EHEA which offers student medical training focussed on the new demands of society.
The result of the training process for medical students tends to be measured by the success of graduates in the MIR examination, and a ranking is established among the universities with most students ranked among the 100 best. For two decades the UAB has been among the universities at the top of this ranking.
These results demonstrate the quality of teaching and the high level of preparation offered by the Faculty of Medicine at the UAB, which has been offering degrees in medicine since 1968.
