Santo Amaro University – Unisa has been teaching, researching, and extending tradition for 50 years. Located in the southern region of São Paulo, it’s the only University that maintains a research partnership with Capela do Socorro and Parelheiros in the south area of São Paulo. This partnership motivated us to structure the Health Sciences Program, one of the pioneers in this segment and which lists several characteristics that meet the proposal of the program, such as:

  • Its regional characteristics.
  • The historical involvement of the university in public health policies in the region.
  • The population characteristics and professional profile of the graduates of this region.
  • The need for integration of knowledge to respond to the complexities of diseases and their diseases.
  • Incentive program for teachers with multidisciplinary vision in their teaching and research practices, enabling students with innovative profiles.

OPINIÃO DE NOSSOS ALUNOS

Sabrinna Aparecida - Medicina

Eu não venho de uma família com base no Ensino Superior. Por isso, esses cinco anos de estudos foram pensando em mudança. Com ajuda de todos os meus familiares, consegui passar na faculdade e vou ser a primeira médica da família.

Lucas Correia - Análise e Desenvolvimento de Sistemas

A Unisa teve um papel fundamental na minha recolocação no mercado de trabalho.

Clodoaldo Valério - Engenharia Ambiental

Eu fiz uma promessa para minha mãe: vou terminar o curso, a pandemia vai acabar e ela vai na minha formatura. Estou batalhando para isso.

Mônica Oliveira - Odontologia

Não desista dos seus objetivos e acredite que tudo pode melhorar.

Maria Alice - Serviço Social

Achei que deveria fazer um curso superior porque acredito na existência de um mercado bem amplo para ser explorado, mas para entrar nele, é preciso estar preparada.

Maurício Rezende - Educação Física

A partir daquele momento, eu sonhava em ser um profissional de Educação Física, mas sabia que, para isso, precisava estudar. Foi aí que conheci a Unisa.
