This generation that completed their studies is made up of doctors mainly from the United States and Puerto Rico.

During the graduation ceremony, the Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences, Dr. Alfonso Petersen Farah, urged the graduates to continue their profession with the conviction of service, professionalism and humanity towards themselves and others. 

The Godfather of this generation was Dr. Norman Ramírez-Lluch, from Puerto Rico, who invited young people to overcome their fears to grow, believe and achieve their dreams; but in turn, he shared that it is a necessity for young people to continue their growth as human beings and professionals to achieve their goals in life.

Subsequently, each of the graduates received their certificate that certifies their studies at the UAG and took the Hippocratic Oath, in which they commit to lead their profession with ethics and professionalism.

The graduation ceremony, in which the sanitary and healthy distance protocols were applied, was attended by relatives of the graduates. In addition, a broadcast was made through YouTube so that more people could witness this event. 

The UAG International Program of Medicine has positioned itself in the United States and Puerto Rico and throughout its history has graduated thousands of physicians who apply their knowledge around the world.
