“Our commitment to sustainability and growth is demonstrated by the increase in the number of academic programs and students, the continued increase in assets thanks to compliance with the tax law that exempts us from taxes as long as we invest profits during the next five years in a meritorious activity, and the growth of the infrastructure to accommodate students in teaching, research and social impact positions.”Dr. Sergio Augusto Parra, Dean of FUCS, says.

To these spaces located in Bogotá are added the headquarters of the country and sports in Cajica; the headquarters of La Ceiba, in Cúcuta, and the Gimnasio Domingo Savio school, also located in the capital of northern Santander.

In the future, FUCS will have a campus on a 64,000 square meter plot south of the San Jose University Children’s Hospital, as well as four buildings and a hotel, all for the benefit and exclusive use of students.

“The hotel will bring many benefits to the well-being of our students. However, during the implementation of the work, a great deal of tolerance will be required from them and even the patients. Ultimately, all this will lead to tangible benefits for society in the medium term.FUCS University President says.

Thus, the University Institution of Health Sciences will continue to maintain its recognized academic tradition as an institution with a specific training profession, distinguishing itself by its excellence in training highly qualified human resources, a strength demonstrated by the high-quality accreditation held by its university programs.
