The University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine Department of Ophthalmology was founded by world-renowned ophthalmologist Dr. Guillermo Pico Santiago. For over sixty-five years, our department has educated medical students and physicians in our specialty. As the state’s unique provider of ophthalmology education, our program has served as the training ground for local specialists.
Through our history, our residency graduates have pursued a wide array of carrier paths from comprehensive ophthalmology to advanced subspecialty practices, with some gaining worldwide recognition, such as Dr. Maria H. Berrocal and Dr. José Raúl Montes. As we follow our path through the 21st century, our department is more than ever committed to continued excellence and exceptional care in our specialty.
