The body of professors entails the realization of the assembly to form the Faculty of Medicine. They want autonomy and stay at the base of the Faculty of Health Sciences.
UNSA’s Medicine Careers teachers suspended the continuation of academic dictation due to various irregularities affecting the teachers’ body.
