Links to Government Sites in Puerto Rico

Hi it has come to my attention that many people have trouble finding the Board of medicine and other links to web sites in Puerto Rico. That may be due to these are in Spanish and cannot be found using any English in Google.

Interested in Puerto Rico and Internships?

FMG Can you speak any Spanish? Then there may be a way to still train if you are unable to match in the USA. Puerto Rico Internado.

You must:

1. Speak Spanish
2. Read, speak and write English
3. Pass the USMLE steps 1-2, 3 is a plus 
4. Be willing to be paid 0 to 1500 a month.
5. Be Humble

After the internship you will be licensed in Puerto Rico as a GP and able to practice medicine in Puerto Rico and certain areas of need in the USA. Or some go on to match into ACGME residencies. 

For specific info on how to navigate Puerto Rico and possibly be accepted into one of these Internados go to Face Book and Join The Puerto Rico Medical Residency Group.
