Discover how our commitment to education and research shapes the future of medicine and healthcare. From undergraduate to graduate internships, international clerkships and an innovative Medicine program, our University Hospital offers a comprehensive educational experience.

Learn the ins and outs of an environment where clinical practice, advanced simulation and academic research come together to prepare the next generation of medical and paramedical professionals.

Undergraduate and Graduate Internships

Foreign Student Internships

Academic research

The Hospital encourages research training of undergraduate and graduate students in different areas of knowledge through the Research Department, which has epidemiologists who provide support and methodological support for the development of the same.

We encourage research training in undergraduate and graduate students through our Research Department, which provides support and methodological support through professionals in epidemiology.

We implement strategies for the development of research competencies such as interdisciplinary rounds, journal club, among others. In addition, we evaluate, approve and monitor the research process through our Research Ethics Committee.

Research or innovation projects carried out jointly with Higher Education Institutions or similar organizations that involve the use of resources by the Hospital, must be approved by both the Research Ethics Committee and the Research Administrative Committee, where the criteria for credits and agreement between the parties will be established. The patrimonial rights over the products of research or innovation, in the development of such joint projects, will belong to both parties unless they have agreed otherwise in writing.

Dissemination of research

Research conducted by Hospital staff, including those involving students, is published in the form of scientific articles compiled by our library. These articles are made available to the public through the digital repository "HPTU Publications".

Medicine Program, Pablo Tobón Uribe Hospital - EIA University alliance.

Committed to the transmission of knowledge, the alliance with EIA University was developed, which resulted in the launching of the Medicine Program, which since 2019, has consolidated the academic-clinical training under humanism, knowledge and technology; with tools of medicine based on administration, evidence and health economics.

At the beginning of the year 2023 there are 516 students, at which time the first cohort is in the seventh semester. From the fourth semester they begin their rotations at the Hospital.

The students of the Medicine Program begin their rotations at the Hospital from their fourth academic semester. During 2023, 570 students rotated through our facilities and the first cohort is currently in its ninth semester.

Simulation Center

Our Simulation Center centralizes the practice of simulation in a hospital environment, fostering the development of competencies that facilitate the training of collaborators, trainees from different disciplines, patients, caregivers and other members of the community.

Our Simulation Center continues to grow. We currently have 63 pieces of equipment for low, medium and high fidelity simulation, including an ultrasound machine for POCUS training in different specialties; a multipurpose patient simulator HAL S3201, designed to simulate realistic cases in different clinical areas such as pre-hospital care, emergency, operating room, ICU, among others; and 5 virtual reality viewers for training in different scenarios.

In agreement with EIA University, we created the EIA Innovation and Development Laboratory - HPTU, as an integral strategy to address social, environmental, engineering and health issues that impact the quality of life of people. With this alliance we encourage the participation of students, teachers and researchers in the conception and execution of projects designed to address specific challenges in the field of health.
