Favaloro University Creed
To exercise a profession without investigating is to condemn said profession to an exercise immobilized in time. But research without the scientific rigor guaranteed by the exercise of basic sciences is not always research, but undertaking adventures without guiding ideas and often incompatible with ethics. But investigating without educating not only betrays the essence of the creative act but also deprives future generations of the invaluable wealth of discovering their own creative potential. But educating without compromising those who are educated with the social reality of their time is not educating either, but rather training skilled professionals, whose skills will be of little use if, due to their social myopia, they cannot put them at the service of those who need them.
