Dean's welcome address
Since our beginnings in 1992, our mission has been to train health professionals who value this people-centred profession, and who stand out for their excellence, ability to innovate and leadership from a humanistic perspective.
In the pedagogical level, Blanquerna-URL is unique because of its personalized methodology, achieved with small groups in theoretical and practical sessions, in clinical simulations, in seminars (training sessions guided by an advisor), and through internships in high-level institutions. We have a faculty made up of professors who combine their professional work with teaching and research, as well as non-teaching staff.
We are committed to interdisciplinary teaching and students taking the different degree courses do joint academic activities, which prepares them for future teamwork. We are constantly incorporating new knowledge, teaching tools and new projects to continue to grow as a university at the service of people and society.
If you'd like to get to know us, why not pay us a visit? Experience the School up close!
