The postgraduate Neurology Residency Program of the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine is approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). It has been granted ACGME accreditation until 2021 when a new visit is scheduled. The training is based on supervised clinical work with an increasing responsibility and completion of milestones on each level of training for the evaluation and management of outpatients and inpatients with neurological disorders. The program also requires the preparation of an original research work to be presented on the last year of training.
We offer a 4-year Categorical track position (PGY1 – 4 years; 3 positions available). The Residency Program aims to provide outstanding training in clinical care, research and medical education to the future of neurology practitioners and professors. We are the only training program in the island of Puerto Rico with 3 Residency positions, and 1 Fellowship position in Neuromuscular Medicine.
The neurology service works continuously to deliver excellence in neurological care of patients and their families. Quality projects and innovation from a varied faculty provide an environment for evaluation and management of diseases of the nervous system, with allied clinical disciplines in order to prepare our trainees for life-long medical teaching and learning.
The Neurology Residency Program is a four- year competency based learning experience designed to train the physician in the field of neurologic disorders. The main participating institutions include: University Adult Hospital, San Juan City Hospital, VA Caribbean Healthcare System, and the University Pediatric Hospital.
