Several high school students from The Columbus School are seeking orientation and/or preparation in the semillero of CES University

The semillero of CES, is a program for school students to begin an immersion in the medical life. This is a program held in CES University and CES Clinic on saturdays. This program not only helps to orient students, but also teaches them valuable information and helps them open doors for studying in CES University, which is also known for its difficult admission process.

“It was a very nice experience, it basically teaches you about medicine, basically, a way to know if you are interested in studying medicine or you are going to focus your career on it,” Alejandro Espinosa, an 11th grade students that assists the semillero, said.

Many students, enter this program because they are sure they want to study medicine and they want to learn medicine´s bases.

“Its an orientation in the sense it teaches you some of medicine’s bases like biology and histology,” Espinosa said.

Other students, went in not exactly to learn about the bases of medicine such as biology and histology but went in to seek for guidance and orientation of whether to study medicine in the future or not.

“I went in hoping I would get some clarity on what I wanted to study, if I wanted to study medicine or not, I didn’t like it and realized that medicine is not my path,” Alejandro Escobar, an 11th grade students that assists the semillero, said.

CES University, is known for having a very hard admission process because of the general culture exam and the interview, some member of the semillero, affirm that being part of this program can help them get in more easily.

“If you show a past that you are interested in medicine, like having assisted to their programs, you can say that in the interview and I think that does help in the deciding process of getting in the University,” Espinosa said.

The semillero of CES brought huge advantages even for the people that didn’t enjoy as much course as others.

“We learned biology, anatomy, molecular biology, physiology, among others, we are actually being certified with knowing how to do first aid,” Escobar said.

At the end, whether the people liked the course or not, it was very useful and attendants learned a lot of new things.

“This career is very difficult but I want to be a doctor, and this was definitely an eye opener in the sense that it tough me a lot,” Espinosa said.
