Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, UPCH is a private university located in Lima, Peru. It was named in honor of Cayetano Heredia, one of the eminent Peruvian physicians of the 19th century. The university is overseen by a Board of Trustees and is not actually property of any private or state entity.

Founded in 1961 by a group of professors and students from the school of medicine of the four-century-old National University of San Marcos also in Lima, Cayetano Heredia and San Marcos are the most prestigious medical schools in Peru now.
