School Overview

School Info

The Mission of the School of Medicine is: to provide undergraduate, graduate and continued medical education with the goal of training competent and compassionate physicians able to serve the underserved, to develop basic and clinical research scientists who are sensitive to our social and health issues, and to provide high quality clinical services to significantly enhance the health status of Puerto Ricans.


The curriculum of the program leading to the Doctor of Medicine degree is designed following the trends of modern medical education and takes into consideration the health needs of the community. It is divided into two major components: two years of required basic sciences (pre-clinical years) and two years of clinical clerkships and electives (clinical years). The basic sciences are taught in a clinically relevant format and during these years students have early immersion in clinical encounters. The clinical component covers contents and skills deemed essential for every medical student regardless of background or ultimate career direction. The curriculum as a whole, consists of a series of courses, clinical clerkships and learning experiences programmed sequentially and longitudinally in an integrated manner.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
