UMH requests court to stop medicine degrees at UA as a precaution

The approval by the Conseil is already in the courts to implement the degree of Medicine at the University of Alicante (UA) from the next academic year 2023/2024, as warned by the Miguel Hernández University (UMH) of Elche. The Legal Services of the University of Elche have already presented before the Administrative Courts of Elche precautionary measures to paralyze the Decree of the Consell of 5 August, by which the Generalitat Valenciana authorized the University of Alicante to implement the degree of Medicine Is.

As such, the university, directed by Rector Juan José Ruiz, who has strongly opposed the Valencian government’s decision, wants the courts to act before the enrollment of the first students in the course, which is scheduled for the end of June or July. After selectivity tests. Thus, the case facing the province’s two public universities has already been prosecuted.

«Medicine in UA is a political vendetta and public money is not for that»

Government bodies of the University of Elche have repeatedly reported, since it was informed of the decision of the Generalitat to recover these studies for the University of Alicante, separating them to be the germ of the University of Miguel Hernández in the year 1996 who were strongly against it because, they allege, it jeopardizes the excellence and quality of the degrees being taught there.

As the Rector of UMH advanced in a recent interview with The Information, the reasons given by the University of Elche for requesting to stop the degree in Medicine at UA is that it is considered an arbitrary decision, based on academic criteria. is not based.


The legal services say that the entire process of granting degrees is flawed. To reach such a statement, they point out that the report in which the creation of the new degree is justified is out of date because it is from 2017 and was approved by ANECA five years ago in 2018, and not So neither the teaching staff nor the infrastructure that they would have to be able to teach the degree.

It is pertinent that there is a period of two years for the degree to be applied for making a new degree and if it is not done within that period, the recognition declines.

A series of shortcomings have also been noted, such as the fact that the ANECA report indicates that the list of internship tutors provided in the report does not correspond to the list of agreed centers to which the UA attaches the cooperation agreement.

or that the data relating to the agreed centers does not match between the reports and the agreements provided, and warns that the information relating to the agreed centers for internships is accurate and out of date.

It is also argued, as the Dean of Medicine’s report suggests, that a new faculty is not necessary, but a MIR position. Or that when the President of the Generalitat, Zimo Puig, announced last April that the degree was going to be created, the Valencian Council of Universities was not even notified.

This is the first step in requesting the UMH take preventive measures to halt the doctors’ degrees before filing a controversial administrative appeal against Kansal’s measure. This will happen after the Court receives the document it has requested from the Ministry of Universities and for which it has given it a period of 20 business days, expiring before June.

In particular, it is necessary to include the general’s administrative file with the reasons for which it rejected the UMH’s request to paralyze the degree. However, the lawyers of the University of Elche have already prepared an appeal.
