Jackson Health Systems Emergency Medicine Residency Program – The first in South Florida!
MIAMI,FL October 6, 2015- Jackson Memorial Hospital/Jackson Health System’s Emergency Medicine Residency Program, in collaboration with its primary educational affiliate, the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, has recently been accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) to offer residency training beginning in July 2016. Under the leadership of its Program Director, Amado Alejandro Báez, M.D.,MPH, the JMH Emergency Medicine Residency Program will offer first class supervision and training to fifteen residents during the 2016-2017 academic year. This three-year comprehensive training experience will offer a “patient-centered” and innovative educational experience designed to develop compassionate and highly-trained future Emergency Medicine physicians. Training will take place at Jackson Memorial Hospital as well as the University of Miami Hospital and Holy Cross Hospital, a 559-bed general medical and surgical hospital that serves the greater Ft. Lauderdale area.
“This is an important milestone for Jackson Health System. With this Residency we mark a new dawn for South Florida Emergency Medicine, one that could not have been achieved without decades of hard work and the collective efforts of our faculty and institutional leadership,” points out Dr. Baez. The program will provide a diverse clinical experience which will allow the physicians to care for patients and beyond, and provide a well-rounded curriculum that conforms to the standards of the ACGME to develop outstanding future clinicians and scholars. We are very proud of being the first institution in South Florida to train future allopathic Emergency Medicine Physicians!
