Dear Applicant,

Welcome to the Official Web Site of the San Juan City Hospital (SJCH) Internal Medicine Residency. I hope that this web site will provide you with a broad and in-depth look at our residency. SJCH has long been a leader in higher education and has had quite a long tradition of excellence in academic medicine, research and community service. Our residents enjoy an outstanding diversity of patients, superb facilities, excellent faculty, a balanced curriculum, and a supportive nurturing environment in which residents are challenged to reach their full potential. This experience prepares our graduates for diverse career options in primary care, subspecialties, research, health policy and medical education. Our goal is to educate you as an individual while providing you with an excellent general background in Internal Medicine.

Our programs offer a blend of experiences at several institutions including:

  • San Juan City Hospital, our main Center
  • University of Puerto Rico (UPR) School Of Medicine District Hospital,
  • VA hospital, San Juan PR.
  • UPR Hospital, Carolina PR

San Juan City Hospital Campus offers a rich array of cultural, scholarly and athletic pursuits, all of which are available to our residents for year round enjoyment. San Juan is a vibrant, cultural and diverse city with a palpable love for the arts, fine food, music, and sports. Puerto Rico is known as the “Enchanted Island” and offers wonderful beaches, nature resources, and great outdoor pastimes. We are indeed fortunate to live, study, and practice our craft in such an academically and culturally stimulating environment.

It is my hope that some of these special aspects of SJCH will be apparent to you as you review the material in our web site and its related links. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments. We look forward to having an opportunity to meet you and to discuss our program and your own personal career goals.

Best wishes,

Maria De Lourdes

Director of Internal Medicine Residency
