We are a group of doctors living in Puerto Rico. Some of us went to medical school in Puerto Rico. Others went to medical school abroad. But more importantly, we are all good friends and share a common passion for teaching and love for medicine. We realized that there were many qualified graduates and physicians from around the world who are unable to overcome the hurdles to obtaining their medical license in Puerto Rico or USA. So we collectively decided to get together and pool our time, effort and resources to create a vigorous and comprehensive, yet fulfilling set of reviews.
This is how SOS MED Reviews started; an academic, review and prep center that helps medical students and graduates along their journey to practicing medicine one day in Puerto Rico and the USA. We understand that in today's growing and diverse society, physicians come from all over the globe. Our group is a great example. We have doctors from Mexico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, USA and also from Spain. Sir William Osler said it best, "the good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease."
At SOS MED Reviews, we want to help you by providing the best possible resources and teaching methodologies so you can be successful here and after! We are super excited about what the future has in store. From our teaching center, to our ever-growing fan base, SOS MED Reviews will work to help doctors become Doctors! Heck, we make learning medicine fun again.
