Social Service is an opportunity for you to develop and transcend by sharing your talents, skills, and knowledge for the benefit of society. At VICSA, we seek to make it a unique experience for you.
We want your philosophy of life to be shaped by an attitude of service and commitment to the most disadvantaged members of society, increasing your potential to change your milieu so that you become a transforming leader in the service of your community.
If you belong to the programs of Biomedical Engineering, Nutrition, Psychology, Clinical Psychology or Psychology of Work and Organizations, your social service consists of the following:
Register and take 20 hours of the Social Formation Workshop class (you must have 132 credits to do so). The Social Formation Workshop aims to raise awareness and awaken critical awareness of global needs and encourage active participation in the sustainable development of their environment. There you will find different alternatives of social action institutions where you can perform your social service.
Complete 480 hours in an institution authorized by the UDEM in a period of at least six months and a maximum of one year.

The social service is done at the end of your internship year; that is, it is the final part of your program.
The duration is one year and you have the option to carry it out in three ways:
In a community
In a university plaza
Conducting an investigation
The Secretaría de Salud del Estado de Nuevo León (SSNL) is the one who offers the places, according to the students' grades.
For the modalities of service in a community and service in a university plaza, in addition to the grades, you must submit a letter requesting a place to the address of the Medicine, Surgery, and Midwifery program. And for the research service, you must present the research project in which you will work during your year of service, which must be approved by the Secretaría de Salud.
