Training Programs : Med-Peds Program

A Message From the Program Director

The UM/JMH Med-Peds program has the distinction of being located in one of the largest medical campuses in the South Eastern United States and one of the most diverse cities in the United States. As a tertiary and quaternary referral center for not only our region, but also the Caribbean, Central and South America, our patient population is as diverse as it is fascinating. Over the years, several centers for excellence in clinical care and research have evolved on our campus providing a multitude of opportunities for career development at the resident level.

The emphasis of our training program is on education through career development and a truly unique feature of the program is flexibility. We have several special tracks including the Med-Peds Global Health Track, Hospital Medicine, Women’s Health and Physician Scientist tracks. We tailor the four year curriculum to meet your specific career goals while still meeting ACGME RRC requirements.

One of the things I love most about our program is our dedication to community service. Located in the historic Overtown section of Miami, we pride ourselves on not just existing within the community, but actually becoming involved in our community. Our community service is coordinated by our appointed community service chair in conjunction with the Med-Peds student interest group and our UM Department of community service (UM DOCS) and includes both medical and non-medical activities.

Our goals as a training program are to produce versatile physicians who are astute clinicians, innovative researchers, skilled educators and community leaders with a passion for medicine, advocacy and health policy. We expect the graduates of our program to competently deliver care to children and adults, to better understand and to have the tools to function in any health care system.

The aspect of the UM/JMH Med-Peds program that is most special is the camaraderie between the residents, faculty, and staff. The collegial and supportive atmosphere fostered within the larger academic setting should be experienced first-hand. We welcome the opportunity to meet you in person so we can show you our program and introduce you to our attendings, residents and staff. Only then will you appreciate the excitement, enthusiasm, and pride we have for our unique and diverse Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Residency Training Program
