      Person-centred medicine.

      A humanistic approach

      The University of Deusto is committed to a person-centred medicine approach that entails treating the patient, not the illness. It is essential to listen to patients and enable them to express their concerns and talk to patients.

      In medicine, humanism is paramount and leaves behind the paternalistic model. Involving patients in their diagnosis and treatment, while maintaining their autonomy and decision-making capacity, creates a doctor-patient alliance that helps improve their health. «No decision about me, without my participation», is a growing demand. It is a change that allows to offer patients a more comprehensive response that adds value to the knowledge and responsibility of medical professionals.

      Problem-based learning

      PBA methodology

      Where does it come from?

      You will learn with the ABP methodology, Problem-Based Learning, as it first was carried out by innovative McMaster University (Canada) a few years ago,always ranked top in Medicine, thus revolutionising medical education worldwide.

      In Spain, one of the pioneers in using the PBL method for medicine is the University of Girona, which has provided guidance, advice and support to the University of Deusto since 2016. Joint collaboration will continue in the coming years thanks to an agreement signed between both institutions.

      Studying medicine using the PBL method means that you will build your knowledge through real-life problemsand cases in their systemic context. Furthermore, in addition to acquiring knowledge, you will also develop your interpersonal and teamwork skills. PBL also promotes critical thinking, ongoing self-directed learning and research skills development.

      The academic staff at the University of Deusto have been trained in this methodology to guide and monitor your learning process.

      • Achieve significant experiences of intercultural relationships, which are inherent to the task of these professionals.
      • Work intensively on the development of competences related to foreign languageproficiency.
