Welcome from our Program Director

It is a pleasure to welcome you to Internal Medicine as the Program Director of our HCA Florida JFK Hospital/University of Miami Miller School of Medicine GME Consortium Program. We could not be more excited about your interest in our program.

Mission Statement

The HCA Florida JFK Hospital Internal Medicine program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders.

As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents' perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values and ideals.

Program Overview

The primary goal of the HCA Florida JFK Hospital/University of Miami Miller School of Medicine GME Consortium Program is to prepare our residents to become the internists of the 21st century.

Residents receive the most progressive curriculum innovations that help them acquire the knowledge, skills, and behavioral attributes necessary for their chosen professions. They learn to become compassionate and professional caregivers in all potential healthcare settings including acute care hospitals, ambulatory settings, long-term facilities, and even the home arena. Our physicians are trained both as healers and medical leaders. They are required to use scientific thought and receive training in clinical and outcomes research. They learn about the efficient and appropriate use of medical resources, a key to the future of medicine. Our graduates have the skills necessary to pursue careers in any area of internal medicine or continue on to fellowships in the various medical subspecialties.

Our program emphasizes not only the scientific aspects of medical practice, but also humanistic ones. Residents gain specific skills necessary for effective and caring patient interactions. They learn the meaning and value of teamwork in health care settings, and are specifically incorporated into patient care teams along with other medical and non-medical professionals. Residents are nurtured to bring out their best attributes and mentored toward helping them fulfill their maximum potentials. They have opportunities to expand their commitment towards professional growth, scholarship, lifelong learning, self-reflection and improvement. They have the opportunity to practice in varied settings and amongst a diversity of patient populations, preparing them to meet today's cultural challenges.

Our faculty is committed to excellence in patient care and teaching. Every medical subspecialty is represented and residents have ample opportunity for one on one interaction. We are truly proud of our program and look forward to our future with enthusiasm and excitement.
