In 2005, the Faculdade PErnambucana de Saúde (FPS) was founded in partnership with the Boa Viagem Educational Association (AEBV) and the Alice Figueira Foundation (FAF), an organization to support the development of the Institute of Integrated Medicine Prof Fernando Figueira (IMIP), institutions with high recognition and public reputation in the context in which they are inserted. It is a combination of academic and administrative skills, based on a broad knowledge of the activities related to teaching, research and extension at the higher level, essential for the satisfactory performance of the new institution.
The mission of FPS is the challenge of an institution of higher education that acts in an inseparable way between teaching, research and extension. The teaching activities are not restricted to preparing the individual just to meet the needs of the population, but, fundamentally, they aim to train professionals to act as transforming agents of society, centered on a generalist view.
Thus, it identifies the principles of collective construction, curricular flexibility, interdisciplinarity and problematization of knowledge as essential for the acquisition of meaningful learning, articulated by the quality of teaching, training activities and technical and scientific preparation, which will contribute to intellectual autonomy and professional. To do so, it develops its pedagogical project anchored in the principles of the active methodology, through the method of Learning Based on Problems (ABP), the same method adopted in the best universities in the world.
The embryo of the Ser Educacional Group emerged in 1994, with the creation of Bureau Juridico, which aimed to prepare candidates for competitive public exams. Since 2003, the group has grown in a gradual and sustainable manner. Ser Educacional operates respected institutions aligned with its Vision, Mission and Values, as well as its identity and actions. Above all, the group and its institutions have a commitment to human beings and their personal and professional fulfillment. Ser Educacional´s commitment to Employability and entrepreneurship is the result of the Company´s awareness of its role in shaping individuals, with a broader focus on personal growth.
