Message from the President


Welcome to the San Juan Bautista School of Medicine, an institution that provides an excellent education for students who are pursuing careers in health care and wish to study on the island of Puerto Rico.  

Our academic programs (MD, Master’s in Public Health, and Bachelor’s in Nursing) offer students rich opportunities to become health care providers who serve humanity with dedication, compassion, and the highest ethical standards.

Throughout their studies, our students benefit from an interdisciplinary approach to learning, which helps prepare them for the challenges of the health care field of today, tomorrow, and beyond.

Our students—whether training as primary care physicians or allied health professionals—graduate with the preparation and experience essential to holistic diagnosis and service to communities in need of healthcare.

We invite you to engage with us to achieve your professional goals as part of a learning environment characterized by passion, compassion, and dedication to the highest level of medical knowledge and skills.


Yocasta Brugal, M.D.
