Message from the President

Yocasta Brugal

Greetings from San Juan Bautista School of Medicine!

San Juan Bautista School of Medicine is an educational center with an integration approach to learning, involving the dynamic classroom, virtual classes, the health needs in the community, and research. Our physicians and health professional graduates have a strong commitment with the health needs of the community. Our students learn interactively in the academic programs of Medicine, Public Health, Nursing, and Physician Assistant.

The institution designed a space for the Clinical Skills Simulation Lab., the Research Core Lab was equipped with advance instrumentation, the Institutional Technology Infrastructure was updated, an available space in the Library was renovated to establish the Graduate Resource Center with active learning equipment to help students in their research projects by providing support in research design, reference management, and statistical analysis. In addition, we established a Virtual Anatomy Lab to integrate the traditional anatomical sciences cadaver lab with a state of the art digital Table 3-D dissection model.

We implemented a comprehensive digital student information system using a cloud-based platform making available online student’s enrollment and the interconnectivity between the student services offices. In addition, we initiated the Title V Scholarship Program for Graduate Students. The students who meet the requirements can receive financial assistance to reduce their enrollment costs.

These institutional developments evidenced our commitment with progress and accomplishment with innovation and the integration of advanced technology in our curriculum and student services.

If you have the vocation of service as your calling, then, consider SJBSM as the institution to help you reach your goal to become a health professional. Since our founding 44 years ago, we have graduated a great number of physicians and health professionals who have become successful licensed practitioners.
