Graduate Residency Program

Residency Background and Mission

The Hospital Dr. Pila/Ponce School of Medicine Family Practice Residency program has been training family physicians since 1985. A majority of our graduates have gone into traditional private practice in Puerto Rico, but many have chosen other career tracks, including academic medicine, occupational medicine, and health maintenance organizations.

Our mission is to train family practitioners to meet the diverse needs of the people of Puerto Rico. To meet this goal, we offer an excellent mix of patient care and teaching a faculty dedicated to residency training and a commitment to the flexibility necessary to prepare you for a career along whatever track you may choose. Our residents are warm, talented and energetic. They are committed to excellence in patient care and supportive of each other.
