    If you are about to enter university or have been there for a short time, there are some basic concepts that you should be aware of.

    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

    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.

    International Programme

    Living and studying in a foreign country

    In the fourth year of study, those who meet the academic and language requirements can access an international mobility experience for one academic semester (second semester). The mobility stays on the Medicine degree are designed, within the programme, to reinforce the degree profile. In this regard, its priority objectives are:

    • Acquire a broader perspective of the graduate's professional development, both in its academic and practical aspects.
    • Promote the development of skills that are fundamental for the work of future graduates in Medicine (teamwork, attention to diversity, development of the values of peace, social justice and solidarity, among others) thanks to the international exchange.
    • 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.

    Agreements with other universities

    The University of Deusto already has  elevenframework agreements in force with international universities that include the Bachelor's Degree in Medicine in their curricula. All the partner universities are ranked among the world’s top 1,000 according to THE or QS quality rankings, so their excellence cannot be questioned.

    Furthermore, the University has non-Erasmus bilateral agreements with 53 universities worldwide that have a degree in medicine; 71 specific non-Erasmus bilateral agreements with universities that have medical studies; Erasmus+ agreements with 101 universities that have a Faculty of Medicine, among others, which gives an idea of its capacity to generate specific agreements on this degree.

    Likewise, the University of Deusto has its own network of Jesuit universities that offer degrees in the health area, such as Medicine and Biomedicine, throughout the five continents.
