This is a descriptive and inferential cross-sectional study, with participation of 1,528 university students that have been attended to in the last 15 years. With regard to the first objective, the most outstanding results are the number of follow-up visits, which were 2,368, with a total number of in-person visits of 3,896, and an average number of visits per student of 2.54. Besides, 50% of attended students were followed up via email.
