On Sunday 17 November, the first group of students from the School of Medicine at Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC) took, for the first time, the National Medicine Exam (ENAM-2013), and ranked among the top three Medical Schools in Peru. 33 students took this exam and will become UPC’s first medical graduates. This result is an important milestone in the history of the university and is the pride of the whole university.
The ENAM is organized by the Peruvian Association of Colleges and Schools of Medicine and is an examination conducted at national level, in which the knowledge of the students that attended 25 different public and private universities that are part of this association are tested. This test is intended for medical students who are in the final year of their training and gives them a score for a place in the SERUM (Urban Rural Health Service). Good results in SERUM are essential for entry into the Medical Residency, which are a requirement.
“Our student outcomes are the result of the comprehensive dedication of our faculty and leaders that have aimed at providing students with the values of science and professionalism," said Dr. Denisse Champin, Director of UPC’s School of Medicine.
This is a truly remarkable result, the School of Medicine at UPC has demonstrated high academic quality since its inception in 2007 and continues to strengthen its commitment to train future physicians who will transform health in the country.
