PMC’s Dr. Francisco Rico and Dr. Juan Jose Jauregui

Dr. Francisco Rico (Left) and Dr. Juan Jose Jauregui Lomeli, Associate Dean for the Program of Medicine in the Community (PMC) (Right) stand next to Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara‘s PMC Mobile Medical Unit. This state-of-the-art unit was provided by funds from the local Rotary Club. The mobile medical unit can travel virtually anywhere in Latin America during natural disasters, such as earthquakes and hurricanes.

The unit contains two consultation rooms and equipment for medical and dental care. When the unit is not being dispatched for a natural disaster, it is mobilized to various poor rural and urban communities to provide free care to the residents. These two doctors are justifiably very proud of the work they do for the less fortunate in Mexico. The PMC program has treated hundreds of thousands of people through its long history of existence (since 1973).

Medical students at UAG’s School of Medicine receive real-world experience almost immediately by accompanying the PMC brigades. The School of Medicine also has an International Program, where students from the U.S., Puerto Rico and other countries choose to complete their medical training.

  1. La UAG cuenta con más de 100 mil egresados. Ha graduado a más de 15 mil médicos norteamericanos, portorriqueños y de Sudamérica.

    Cuenta con un programa de Medicina enla Comunidad que proporciona asistencia médica y odontológica de forma gratuita y coadyuva con la sociedad agraviada en casos de desastre.

    Cuenta la UAG con el mayor número de intercambios académicos con universidades de prestegio del mundo por encima de muchas otras universidades privadas.

    Ha recibido la UAG el reconocimiento de le la sociedad inetrnacional, el Senado de la República mexicana, fundaciones, etc.

    Los mitos respecto de la UAG son fruto del resentimiento y de la envidia de ver una institución exitosa, y eso lastima a las mediocridades. por eso “Miente, miente que algo queda”.

    ¿Porqué no se dan una vuelta por la UAG para que constaten objetivamente lo afirmado por mí y cientos de miles de mexicanos y extranjeros serios?

    No van a encontrar mazmorras, ni campos de exterminio. Encontrarán un recinto auténticamente universitario. Ordenado y limpio.
