Faculdade de Medicina - FM

A Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo (FMUSP) foi fundada oficialmente em 24 de novembro de 1891, de acordo com a Lei nº 19, como 'Academia de Medicina, Cirurgia e Pharmácia'; a aula inaugural foi realizada anos mais tarde, em 1913, quando foi rebatizada como Faculdade de Medicina e Cirurgia de São Paulo, sendo designada como Faculdade de Medicina de São Paulo em 1925 e incorporada à Universidade de São Paulo em 1934.

A FMUSP está vincula ao Sistema FMUSP-HC, que é o maior do país e também o maior centro assistencial da América Latina, compreendendo, além da Faculdade de Medicina, institutos especializados no atendimento de alta complexidade (atenção terciária), hospital de média complexidade (atenção secundária), hospitais auxiliares, unidades especializadas no atendimento integral de pacientes portadores de HIV/AIDS, Centro de Saúde Escola (atenção primária), Unidades Básicas de Saúde (atenção primária), Laboratórios de Investigação Médica (LIMs) e Fundação de Apoio.

Atualmente a FMUSP atua na graduação e pós-graduação de médicos, fisioterapeutas, fonoaudiólogos e terapeutas ocupacionais com sólida formação geral e básica, além de promover o treinamento nos três níveis de atenção à saúde.

Entre as atividades realizadas na FMUSP estão pesquisa e desenvolvimento na área da saúde, além de pesquisa básica e clínica e o oferecimento de ensino, pesquisa e atividades de cultura e extensão, tendo como prioridade o investimento em pesquisa científica e sua reversão para projetos de assistência social.
