The Universidad Central del Caribe is building future health through education, research and service.

At the very heart of the UCC’s plan for the future is its mission.  A university community must know what qualities are to be preserved as its goals for the future are developed and advanced.  The UCC thrives on being faithful to its mission by focusing on excellence, by pursuing clear goals and by cherishing and enriching a community of diverse scholars who prepare high-quality and committed health professionals to meet the health needs of the community in its biological, physical and social context, with a humanistic focus and a high sense of moral obligation.

In its 40 years, the UCC has demonstrated its commitment to improving the quality of life of the Puerto Rican community through excellence in clinical services, emphasis in an extensive agenda of biomedical, clinical, and psychosocial research as well as the development of competent health care professionals.
