Our history

From the joint-venture of NRE Educacional colleges, the group with the largest number of medical students in Brazil, and Medcel, an EdTech leader in prep and update courses for medical residency exams, we created Afya – a company already born with wide experience in its sector and the aspiration to be the greatest partner of Brazilian medical students and doctors in achieving their dreams of promoting healthcare and well-being.

Along our path, we have helped more than 100,000 physicians during all stages of their academic and professional lives, contributing to improve healthcare delivery and, therefore, spreading life quality in our society.
