Centre of Academic Excellence in Post Graduate Medical Education

The new Centre of Academic Excellence in Post Graduate Medical Education is a very valuable resource to introduce innovations, new practices and organizational to achieve excellent standards.

In 2010, the School of Medicine at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC) and the Royal College of Physicians of Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC) engaged in a collaborative process in order to improve the quality of postgraduate medical education and achieve standards of excellence that could have an institutional and regional impact. As a result of the strong partnership between UC and the RCPSC, a number of successful initiatives were developed. They included significant institutional changes at UC and Latin American initiatives  for strengthening post graduate medical education such as the Latin American Conference in Residency Education  (LACRE) launched in 2013 and the International Medical Education Leaders Forum (IMELF) – Latin America launched in 2017.
