A group of ten Colombian doctors created the Bogota Surgical society in1902, whose main objectives were to found a hospital to provide medicine and surgery and in turn contribute with teaching related sciences. In 1925, they inaugurated one of the most important constructions of the capital city, the “San José Hospital.”

Since then the academy has been linked to the medical activities of the Bogota Surgical Society Many of the leaders and directors of the public and private health sector were trained at the San José Hospital. The institutional experience, the teachers’ careers, the infrastructure created during the work of more than half a century, the prestige and excellent academic results, have made the San José Hospital the perfect place to create its own programs for undergraduate and graduate studies.
