OLMEDO-CANCHOLA, Víctor Hugo; HEINZE-MARTIN, Gerhard  and  ANDONEY-MAYEN, Jéssica Valeria. Characteristics of specialization course in Internal Medicine endorsed by National Autonomous University of Mexico. Med. interna Méx. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.2, pp.311-320. ISSN 0186-4866.

Internal Medicine is the specialty responsible for the care, diagnosis and treatment of adult diseases. Next, the development of internal medicine will be described as well as the importance of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in the strengthening of this specialty. The Division of Postgraduate Studies of UNAM, with the creation of the Unique Plan of Medical Specializations (for its abreviature in Spanish PUEM), has consolidated the medical specialization courses, supported by the seminars on research, education and medical attention and the medical care work. UNAM has 32 of the 103 specialization courses in Internal Medicine at the national level, with a staff of approximately 900 trainers in all courses with a recognition of UNAM. Up to December 2017, 4 of the 32 courses of Internal Medicine were registered in the National Postgraduate Program in Quality of CONACyT.
