CLOUET-HUERTA, Diego E.; GONZALEZ, Bárbara  and  CORREA, Katherine. Medical specialization in Chile. A centralized vision. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2017, vol.145, n.11, pp.1454-1462. ISSN 0034-9887.

Medical graduates face different postgraduate training options, but their priority is to obtain a primary medical specialty, defined as a specialty that does not derive from other. There are different specialty training programs in Chile, which can be dependent or independent of the Ministry of Health. The information about these programs is available in different Internet sites. However a centralized information service that groups and synthetize these programs is lacking, hampering graduate choice decisions. This article aims to review all specialization program modalities, providing a general vision of the institutional structure and implications that govern the specialization process in Chile.
