Why this postgraduate course?
In recent years, we have moved away from the idea of ​​medicine only as an instrument of healing. We are increasingly interested in exploring new ways in which health care is part of a system dedicated to preventing and improving people's health. In short, a health system that prioritizes the welfare of the population.

The postgraduate program in Architectural Design of Hospital Projects is an intensive and high-level pedagogical program that is presented as a unique training in its speciality aimed at those national and international architects who wish to address the challenges of architectural design focused on hospital projects.
Aims
  • Delve into the conditions and characteristics of hospital architecture design to respond to the present and future demands.
  • Design a hospital, from a theoretical point of view and taking into account the practical aspects of design.
  • Establish the general conditions and demands of the physical structure of a hospital, incorporating basic knowledge about the equipment and the complex and demanding systems of facilities.
Who is it for?
  • Architects involved in the process of programming, design and construction of health buildings.
  • Professionals whose objective is specialization in this field, both nationally and internationally.
