Our Focus

We train doctors with the best, comprehensive knowledge in the profession and the highest competences in diagnosis, solution, disease investigation and intellectual production in the different areas of health.

Thanks to the alliance (Alizanza profunda para la vida) with Fundación Valle del Lili (FVL) (a cutting edge medical center), our doctors are able to adapt to the dynamic challenges and needs that arise in the health sector. Their cognitive and critical thinking skills, and their capacity for self-learning strengthen their professional identity and leadership.

The alliance has an initial duration of 50 years and allows both institutions to establish a synergy in all their activities through coordination of work, maintaining highly reputed excellence in performance, and consolidating social projection in one of the most important sectors for the community. In addition, it allows undergraduate students to interrogate and perform physical examinations of patients, participate in medical rounds, attend academic activities, undertake practical work and benefit from pedagogical instruction from specialists and subspecialists in FVL starting from the first semester of the degree.

Research Groups

The faculty has a biomedical research group composed of medical researchers in different specialties and clinical subspecialties, doctors and professionals from various areas with master's and doctoral degrees who are experienced researchers.

Icesi researchers work with the clinical research group of the Fundación Valle del Lili, specifically in biomedical research in the thorax. This research group seeks to integrate research of basic and clinical sciences to obtain transferable results and consolidate a leadership position in quality research at national and international level.
