Overview

The Pedro Henríquez Ureña National University is located at Ave. John F. Kennedy Km. 7 ½, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. It is an up-scale campus located in the center of the city on one of the main avenues, with easy access for arrival next to one of the Santo Domingo L2 metro stations.

It has an Advanced Architecture Unit that was conceived as a nucleus for research, development, and implementation of new media, including: strategic research, prototype development, the promotion of the inter-disciplinary relationship with collaborative work, the promotion of collaboration between academia and industry, and the offering of manufacturing services, all for the purpose of contributing  to society.

In this same order, we have a Center of Operations in Objectively Systematized Medical Simulation (COSMOS), a teaching and training space for medical simulation that incorporates pre-hospitalization care.  COSMOS has a dynamic design that allows the performing of sequential practices such as rescue inside the ambulance and transfer to the emergency; and simultaneous practices such as the acquisition of skills through partial dexterity.  It also incorporates the development of complex scenarios that require high-fidelity simulators, and feedback sessions facilitated by an audiovisual system and capture of reproducible data.

We have a clinical laboratory for dentistry with cutting-edge technology equipment, which serves as a tool for our students to develop the technical skills required in the competitive marketplace.  Our school has received delegations from the School of Dentistry of Tufts University, in Boston, United States, with which we have had an international agreement for eight years, which allows students to student academic _____________ (sic) every year to that important American university.

We inaugurated the first Brain Bank in the Caribbean, whose objective is to develop lines of research on neurodegenerative diseases in this country.  We are an institution committed to research and innovation.
