Letter from the Program Director
Thank you for your interest in the University of Miami /JFK Medical Center Palm Beach Regional GME Consortium Internal Medicine Residency Program. Our program is designed to provide comprehensive training in the specialty of Internal Medicine while allowing each resident the flexibility to tailor the experience to his or her individual career goals. The resources and expertise of one of the nation’s premier medical schools are behind this innovative program set in two state-of-the-art health care facilities, the JFK Medical Center and the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center.
The curriculum is designed to provide hands on patient care experiences in general medicine and all the subspecialties under the guidance of highly skilled specialists and educators. Our curriculum recognizes that learners have different needs and we pride ourselves on meeting them through resident input, as well as individualizing the experience based on a resident’s interests and career path. Elective experiences allow residents to hone their skills in medical subspecialties as well as areas such as hospital administration, end-of-life and home care, and research. All this is offered within the friendly environment of West Palm Beach Florida.
Excellent patient care, scholarship, and humanism are the outcome measures we value most. Success in these three areas will lead to success in any chosen medical career whether that is in primary care, hospital medicine, subspecialty training, research or a more nontraditional career path. The University of Miami/JFK Medical Center Palm Beach Regional GME Consortium Internal Medicine Residency Program can help you meet your goals. We are very proud of our program and I invite you to take a closer look.
Frederick K. Williams, M.D.
