Laureate’s Centers of Excellence in medicine and health sciences are also active in health sciences research, particularly Universidade Anhembi Morumbi in Brazil and Universidad Andrés Bello in Chile.
Centers of Excellence in medicine and health sciences share not only programs, curricula and faculty, but also a commitment to the local communities in which they operate. That is why more than 300,000 patients have received free or low-cost service from community clinics at Laureate member institutions.
