What does your program offer that residents can’t get anywhere else?

We offer a three-year county program at one of the country’s largest public hospitals—with international transfers, a large organ transplant population, high volumes, and even higher acuity. We have a diverse patient population with a plethora of communities who call the city of Miami home. Although our program is based at a county hospital, we also have our residents rotate at a high-volume, urban, community hospital, as well as at the University of Miami hospital, and the VA. Training here will prepare you for any career that you wish to pursue.
What is the work-life balance like?
Your personal time can be spent enjoying Miami’s vibrant art, music, and dancing scenes as well as the beach! We have international cuisine, access to weekend getaways all over sunny Florida, and three National Parks within four hours of the hospital. Our wellness is also supported by our resident union Committee of Interns and Residents and our community of residents who love spending time together. We have a wonderful work-life balance and we’re based in Miami, Florida—one of the most exciting cities in the world.
