Congratulations to the first class of graduates from CUC with a degree in Medicine!

Commitment, dedication, and hard work are only some of the values that characterize the students and graduates of the Bachelor in Surgery.


The representative of the students, Abraham García Padilla, gave thanks for the graduates to family and friends – and especially to the cloister of teachers – for the support provided over the past five years that it took for the 34 students, now doctors, to achieve this goal.


In the presence of university authorities, family and friends, the graduates made the Hippocratic Oath, which was directed by Dr. Juan Agustín Torres Vázquez, Academic Secretary of CUCosta, and Dr Remberto Castro Castañeda. Also  in attendance was the director of Division of Biological and Health Sciences CUCosta, Dr. Jorge Téllez López, and the head of the Department of Medical Sciences, Doctor Jesus Aaron Curiel Beltrán.  We wish all of the greatest success.


Every Wednesday and Friday at 1 pm in the main auditorium we show full length films. Free admission and open to the general public.
