Spanish National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation gives green light to the University of Alicante undergraduate degree in Medicine

The final phase of the implementation is subject to the Regional Department of Education after the relevant report from the Regional Department of Health

 

Alicante. 31 July 2018

The Spanish National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA), assigned to the Ministry of Education and in charge of authorising new university degrees, has given the green light for the implementation of the undergraduate degree in Medicine.

The Regional Department of Education now has the final word on the implementation of the degree whose decision will be made after the previous mandatory report from the Regional Department of Health, in charge of authorising internships in hospitals for medical students.

University of Alicante President Manuel Palomar has expressed his "satisfaction with the recent approval of the undergraduate degree in Medicine by ANECA. For us, it is the result of a high-quality quality, novel, creative and avant-garde curriculum which has been undoubtedly designed for the training of future medical professionals and in September, we will request authorisation from the regional government with the aim of implementing the degree in the academic year 2019/20".

Accordingly, UA Vice President for Studies Planning and Training Actions Enrique Herrero has been optimistic and confident that the Ministry of Education will approve the implementation of the undergraduate degree in Medicine after the ANECA’s favourable report.

Coordinated by Herrero, the UA has sent all the required information to the ANECA, which has now resulted with the authorisation of the degree. The Vice President stressed that the curriculum was well done from the very beginning and pointed out that the ANECA has been upholding the law at all times, and it has been authorised only after we have had all the details ready, including our laboratories, the shifts and rotations in hospitals, the number and position of the academic staff involved.

The study plan includes 75 undergraduate places, with 360 credits distributed in six academic years. During the first two years, students get basic training that allows them to face the clinical training from the third to the fifth years, to end up with the sixth year totally dedicated to clinical practices and the final-year undergraduate project. Also, optional courses include Biology of Human Reproduction, Molecular Medicine, Behavioural Psychotherapy and Health, Emergency and Disaster Management, and Clinical Nutrition. UA  Faculties of Science and Health Sciences the will be in charge of coordinating the teaching activity of the undergraduate degree in Medicine.

 

Internships

The UA has been discussing the possibility of medical internships with the hospitals of Vinalopó, in Elche, Torrevieja, Vistahermosa HLA Clinic , Vithas Hospitals Alicante and Hospital QuirónSalud. The ANECA has considered these guarantees sufficient to authorise the UA to teach the undergraduate degree in Medicine.

In fact, the Faculty of Medicine was one of the founding faculties at the University of Alicante 40 years ago. It was the Government of Eduardo Zaplana that decided to take it to the Miguel Hernadez University in Elche when it was created in 1996, segregating the Medicine studies of the University of Alicante.
