Profile

Founded in 1973 the UPAEP was established at the request of the people of Puebla in order to serve the people in the community. The University is noted for its academic excellence and the number of accredited programs as well as for its Institutional Development Strength.

UPAEP's urban main campus, only 15 minutes away from historical downtown, facilitates collaboration between the community and students. Campus facilities include a fully equipped computer center, library center, film center, gymnasium, outdoor pool, and other sports facilities. The university is known for its basketball and soccer teams, and student groups are active in theater, dance, chorus, speech and debate, photography, and animation. Total university-level enrollment: 8,000.



ISEP-Exchange programs allow students to participate in reciprocal exchanges with students at ISEP member institutions worldwide, while paying their home university tuition. Students attending US universities that are ISEP-Exchange members are eligible to apply for these programs at other international ISEP-Exchange member universities. Chances of placement vary by location.

ISEP-Direct programs allow students to enroll directly in a host institution abroad, instead of exchanging places with another student. Chances of placement are typically excellent for qualified applicants and some sites offer special academic programs and excursions. Students attending US universities that are either ISEP-Exchange members or ISEP-Direct members can participate in ISEP-Direct programs abroad.

This 3 credit program offers students a unique look inside Mexican health care, hospitals and public health issues. The Pre-Med program consists of three principal components:
  • Shadowing a local physician: Each week a student will shadow a local physician for 3-8 hour per week, and have the opportunity to observe doctor-patient interactions, procedures, and in some cases, observe surgeries in the operating room. Students are typically assigned to doctors in local public hospitals.
  • Lectures: Students will attend 4 to 10 lectures from physicians regarding the health system in Mexico. Topics of lectures will vary by semester.
  • Meetings with supervising physician: Students will meet with a local supervising physician between 6 and 8 times per term to discuss questions and observations.
In addition to the Pre-Med program, students will enroll in sufficient courses (in English, Spanish, or Spanish as a Second Language) to reach full time status. Please note: there is an additional fee to participate in the Pre-Med program, to be paid directly to UPAEP. For further information on this program, please contact the ISEP Program Officer for Mexico.
