These academic institutions are authorized by the legal mechanisms established by the Cuban State for such purposes, under the direction of a Rector and with a categorized cloister, in certified scenarios, which gives the right to issue university certification documents of any level.

In Cuba there is a National Accreditation System, whereby, in each university campus, the scenarios for training in the different careers and postgraduate studies offered are certified, in order to guarantee the fulfillment of the activities described in the Programs of study. The program of study is unique for the whole country and its implementation is carried out equally for all.

In addition, there are at least 22 master's degrees, doctoral programs in health sciences and other professional improvement activities such as courses, trainings and diplomas. In some cases, training activities, particularly in the practical field, can be complemented by universities in other countries.

As a principle and in order for the degree to be approved where the applicant will practice, the addition of other contents and objectives in the study program is admitted, after conciliation with the university authorities and Comercializadora de Servicios Médicos Cubanos (CSMC). In no case will content be removed at the request of the applicant, except for those that are processed through the validation and proficiency tests provided for in the regulations of the postgraduate program.

For the different courses it is necessary for non-speaking students to have the Spanish language approved, or in default to study the 20-week program established for it. In the case of improvement activities or other, it is possible to do it in English, or even in other languages, which should be consulted in a specific way for each case.
