Welcome Applicants

Dear Applicant,

Welcome to the University of Miami/JFK Medical Center Palm Beach Regional GME Consortium. We are proud of the education provided here to our residents, and the positive impact the residencies have had on medical care in Palm Beach County. Our Graduate Medical Education Programs include residencies in Internal Medicine and Surgery, and fellowships in Cardiovascular Disease, and Hospice and Palliative Medicine. We are pleased that you are interested, and hope that you will browse our website for more information.

Our Internal Medicine Residency Program continues to be extremely successful and is an innovative, progressive program with outstanding faculty and a wealth of clinical and didactic experiences. JFK Medical Center serves as the main teaching site for the residency, with the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center being an extremely important partner. For more information visit the Internal Medicine Residency Program.

The General Surgery Residency started in July of 2011 with six residents, and now trains 10 residents each year, 2 residents in each categorical PGY year. JFK Medical Center is the major teaching hospital site for the surgical residency, with residents also rotating to the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center and to Jackson Memorial Hospital during the third and fourth years of the residency. For more information visit the General Surgery Residency Program.

Our Fellowship in Cardiovascular Disease started in July 2016 with two fellows and will grow to a full complement of six over the next several of years. JFK Medical Center serves as the main teaching site for the fellowship with rotations at the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center for additional clinical exposure. For more information visit the Cardiovascular Disease Program.

Our Fellowship in Hospice and Palliative Care is a one year fellowship and is supported by TrustBridge Health. In addition to training in the field at multiple sites in the County, the fellows are also engaged in education of the residents and students from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. For more information visit the Hospice and Palliative Medicine Program.

Both the Internal Medicine and Surgery residencies have close ties to their main campus counterparts in Miami.

University of Miami Miller School of Medicine students who are enrolled in the four year MD/MPH program complete third year clinical clerkships and their required fourth year rotations on our campus. These experiences have been very successful and extremely well-received by the students. Students from the main campus have also elected to fulfill some of their requirements on the Regional Medical Campus.

During the many training opportunities at the Regional Campus, you will work one on one with fulltime and affiliated faculty of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine in an environment that melds the best of both academic medicine and community practice. We welcome your interest in the University of Miami Regional Campus, and encourage you to become a part of the U!

Sincerely,

Joan E. St. Onge, M.D., F.A.C.P., Senior Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education
