Health Sciences

Welcome to the Faculty of Health Sciences at Universidad Panamericana


In 1996 the schools of Medicine and Nursing were opened with the aim of forming health professionals who were highly prepared to respond to the needs of our country. The main focus of both schools i son specialization in the fields of research and social work. Both of these are indispensable in promoting a true change.

Since then, we have shown that the aim has been accomplished, evidenced by the professional, human, and ethical quality of our alumni, as well as by their scientific productivity and by the number of people who have benefited from our health programs in the states of Mexico, Guerrero, and the Federal District.


In July of 2012, the School of Psychology opened to complement the objective of impacting the health of our population. This school focuses on neurosciences, and shares its mission with the schools of Nursing and Medicine: to form health professionals distinguished by their knowledge and skills, directed to specialization and research, with human quality and a profound sense of ethics and social responsibility.


Last January the three schools were elevated to the category of Faculty of Health Sciences. This will allow them to reinforce their common goals and interdisciplinary work to the benefit of patients.


In response to the growing need to reflect upon techniques related to life, the Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics (CIBUP) was created. The Center is made up of professors from the School of Philosophy, the Faculty of Law, and the School of Medicine at Universidad Panamericana; they are all experts in the field of Bioethics. CIBUP took on a formal structure in 2010 and is based on multidisciplinary work, an absolute must in addressing current issues in bioethics. 2011 saw the opening of both a Specialist course and a Master’s program in Bioethics, both with excellent results. The first cohort graduated in December, 2012.



To form health professionals distinguished by their knowledge and skills, directed to specialization and research, with human quality and a profound sense of ethics and social responsibility.
