About Serena del Mar Medical Center
As well as the Universidad de los Andes Caribbean Campus, there will be a complete medical center in Serena del Mar operated by the Fundación Santa Fe de Bogotá.
In 1979, the Fundación Santa Fe de Bogotá and the Universidad de los Andes began to work together to create a medicine program. The project to create a Faculty of Medicine was consolidated in 2001, and this was made official in 2003. Four years later, the Universidad de los Andes Student Medical Center was inaugurated in the Fundación Santa Fe de Bogotá, and, in 2010, the first cohort of students graduated.
In October 2017, the alliance between the Universidad de los Andes and the Fundación Santa Fe de Bogotá was renewed on a permanent basis, which means that the students in the Faculty of Medicine can undertake their studies, research, and internships together with the Fundación’s doctors, specialists, and researchers. There will also be joint ventures for undergraduate degrees, internships, and research programs, and research and work groups will be developed in several fields including biomedical engineering and genetics.
