General Policy related to enrollment and development of Medical Education activities.
The courses aimed at health professionals are submitted to the respective Boards through the Puerto Rico Office of Regulation and Certification of Health Professionals of the Department of Health. Those directed to physicians are submitted to the Puerto Rico Medical Licensing and Discipline Board for consideration. Both, the Board of Health Professionals Examiners and the Puerto Rico Board of Licensing and Medical Discipline determine the number of contact hours to be approved for each educational design submitted. Therefore, SJBSM is not responsible for changes in the number of hours that said organizations approve or for the delays they incur in course approvals. Once the Examining Boards evaluate the designs, they determine if a course is approved or not approved and for how many hours of the total requested. Enrollment may be by email or in person before the course is held depending on space availability.
