school-medicine-2The Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and its School of Medicine, consider the training of medical specialists to be essential. The School´s postgraduate office offers 29 programs of medical specialties and 35 subspecialty programs. With a total number of 600 students, 200 new specialists graduate each year.

Our mission is to train specialists of excellence, with high ethical and professional standards, who provide treatment focusing on the requirements of patients of the 21st century.

Medical Specialty Programs  
In the ongoing search for academic development, each year new medical specialty programs are created, increasing the offer and diversity of options for professional training. During recent years, new specialties have been established, deriving from anesthesia, pediatrics, psychiatry and radiology, among others.  

National Accreditation 
The School of Medicine has made significant advances to comply with the recent changes in the Chilean regulation for accreditation of medical specialties programs. Currently, most of our programs have national accreditation and over 90% of our students are graduating from Medical Specialty Programs accredited by APICE.

Training capacity and social commitment  
As one of the main Chilean Faculties of Medicine, we are committed to closely collaborate to meet the training needs of specialists for our country. During the last five years, we have gradually improved our training capacity, increasing our total quota by about 40%. This significant effort placed special emphasis on specialties whose shortage is critical to Chile.

Collaborative alliance with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada
The School of Medicine of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile has worked closely with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada since 2010. This alliance was formalized by a Collaborative Work Agreement (MOU) signed by both institutions in 2014.

The Latin American Conference on Residency Education (LACRE), held since 2013, is part of this initiative. This event aims to further the education and professionalism of postgraduate medical education. The conference’s third version will take place in May 2017.

In order to certify compliance with the highest international standards, the UC School of Medicine is working to incorporate a competency-based framework of medical education known as the CanMEDS, Physician Competency Framework. This model has been developed by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and describes the knowledge and skills that specialists need to develop, in order to deliver high quality care.
