Our Mission, Vision and Commitment
Our Mission and Vision
Our mission is to provide the highest quality training for the physician of today and of tomorrow. We are proud of our unique environment, where we accept highly qualified applicants into one of our 74 ACGME accredited or 27 subspecialty programs recognized by other organizations. Our environment is urban, richly diverse, and spans several training venues. Our faculty is world-renowned as educators, clinicians, and scientists. Our goal is to utilize all of our resources to assure the public that our trainees are highly competent to fulfill their roles as professionals; and to support and encourage our trainees to achieve their personal goals and highest potential.
Our GME enterprise is a partnership between the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and Jackson Memorial Health System. Together we assure our faculty and our programs that we will support their educational missions, provide a healthy and safe environment for our trainees, and deliver high quality patient-centered care.
The Graduate Medical Education Office is located on the Medical Campus of the Miller School of Medicine and the Jackson Memorial Hospital complex in Miami, FL (Rosensteil Medical Science Building, Suite 1149, 1600 NW 10th Ave, Miami, FL 33136).
Our Institutional Commitment
We provide oversight and support for all programs, including ACGME accredited and institutionally approved non-ACGME programs. Each program is expected to appoint the most qualified applicants, recruit and retain outstanding attending physicians, and offer comprehensive, competency-based educational training. We are committed to training that balances learning, service, and scholarship; and that facilitates professional, ethical, and personal development.
