The disassociation of the San Rafael University Center for Health Sciences from the Antonio de Nebrija University is pending approval by the General Directorate of Universities and Higher Artistic Education of the Community of Madrid.

The University Center of Health Sciences San Rafael-Nebrija is attached to Nebrija University and managed by the San Juan de Dios Foundation, created by the Hospitaller Order of San Juan de Dios for the training and promotion of scientific and assistance research in the areas of bio-medicine and social sciences.
It is located in a central and well-connected area of Madrid, within the San Rafael Hospital, an institution with extensive experience teaching Nursing and Physiotherapy degrees, and with recognized prestige in the quality of its students, both for the technical training received and for the integration of humanistic education, which prepares them to offer comprehensive care.
Currently, the San Rafael-Nebrija Center offers Undergraduate degrees in Nursing and in Physiotherapy. The students have at their disposal an excellent staff of professionals with extensive experience in teaching and in the development of health work, which will contribute to the materialization of their vocation to provide health services to people.
