UCAM Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia has received recognition for the commitment it made, ever since its beginning, to Health Sciences. The last report of Fundación Conocimiento y Desarrollo (CYD), which was presented this week, on the state of Spanish universities from a regional perspective, recognises UCAM as the most specialised educative institution of the Region in Health Sciencesapart from including it in the top-ten of Spain. UCAM offers eleven Bachelor’s Degrees in the field of health, after launching, during the last academic year, the degree in Biotechnology, which adds to the ones in Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, Medicine, Dentistry, Nutrition, Food Science and Technology, Podiatry, Nursing, Occupational Therapy and Psychology, and to highly specialised post-graduate studies.


The document also singles out UCAM in the university system of Murcia for being a pole of attraction for international Bachelor's, Master’s and Doctoral Degrees students, thus placing it in the highest position in global computation, and in relation to ordinary students (outside from mobility programmes), where it holds a spot in the top-fifteen in Spain.

Among the data analysed, obtained from official sources of the Ministry and of the University itself, the performance of the students of UCAM has been positively evaluated, and the university has the lowest dropout rate among first-year Bachelor’s Degrees students in the Region. Likewise, it stands out the high percentage of students who finish their studies within the foreseen theoretical time and who successfully obtain a degree. UCAM holds the first position in relation to official master's degree graduates over the total number of graduates.
