Puerto Rico MIHE Workshop
The University of Puerto Rico Medical Sciences Campus School of Pharmacy is our host for the March 6, 2013 MIHE govcon workshop. The School of Pharmacy of the University of Puerto Rico, originally established as a Department of Pharmacy, and in 1925 organized as the College of Pharmacy, was founded on September 22, 1913 at the Río Piedras Campus. It was the first health professional program to be offered at a higher education level in Puerto Rico, and the first to be accredited. In 1989, the College changed its official name to School of Pharmacy. In 2001, a Pharmacy Practice Residency program was established as a joint effort with VA Caribbean Healthcare Center in San Juan. It is accredited by the American Society for Health System Pharmacists (ASHP) as a postgraduate one year pharmacy residency program. The School of Pharmacy is also a provider of continuing education since 1979. Its Continuing Education and Professional Studies Division is accredited by the Health Professional Examining Boards of Puerto Rico as a continuing education provider for most health professionals in the Island. The University of Puerto Rico – School of Pharmacy is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) as a provider of continuing pharmacy education.

The whole system, including the buses, trains and publicos (public vans) is called Alternativa de Transporte Integrado (ATI). The bus system is called the Autoridad Metropolitana de Autobuses (AMA). The light-rail train system is called the Tren Urbano. The whole public transportation system is most prominent in the San Juan metro area.
