Welcome to the Universidad Santa Paula! Standard of excellence in defining the future in our academic offer!

Dr. Fernando Zeledón
Dean

The University is committed to providing its students with the necessary tools to be leaders in our careers, for which we have innovative teaching methods and professionals of high academic and human standards that allow them to cultivate their clinical practice and research skills to impact on human development.

At USP, we study the human being as a whole; that is, not only in diagnosing and treating the ailment that afflicts him/her at a given time, but also in promoting, through our students and graduates, both prevention and health promotion.

To achieve this, at USP we develop inter- and multidisciplinary work where researchers, academics, teaching specialists, psychologists and professionals in different fields converge to convert the advances of science into clinical practice of a very high professional level, thus allowing our graduates to leave a positive mark on each of the people they treat in their different fields. Thanks to this effort of constant improvement and to our accredited careers under quality standards, we are currently full members of the National System of Accreditation of Higher Education (SINAES) in Costa Rica, we have a Scientific Ethics Committee, an indexed scientific journal, a modern simulation center, Clinical Care and we belong to the Union of Universities of Latin America and the Caribbean (UDUAL), GLOBAL EDU, TELESCOPI, and we have agreements with more than 24 universities abroad, including the United States, Latin America and Europe, among other academic achievements.

USP, throughout its 25 years of history, has managed to standardize teaching methods with which we achieve that our graduates feel completely satisfied with their professional training and thus present the greatest opportunities to enter the labor market. Therefore, I invite you to come, get to know us and become part of our family.
