Miami has a large Hispanic population — 80-90% of the patients seen at KRMC identify themselves as Hispanic. There is a great deal of social diversity amongst the patients, so residents are exposed to a wide array of pathology.

Interns are expected to carry up to 8 patients and can admit up to 2 daily. The workload falls well below CPME requirements for duty hours, and this gives the interns and residents adequate time to read about and learn from their patients.

Some form of scholarly activity; research, QI or a case report is required for graduation. We have a dedicated faculty member who serves as our Research Director. Their role is to help develop research projects that align with each resident's particular areas of interest.

In addition, residents are required to participate in a QI project during their training. This is facilitated by our Physician Advisor. The core clinical faculty members are always on the lookout for patients who would be good candidates for a case report or abstract submission, and we already have one publication from an intern this year.

We do accept IMGs. Application requirements are detailed in a separate section of this website. The deadline for application is October, and CS results must be received by February in order to be ranked.

We do consider observerships as US experience; however, hands-on US clinical experience is preferred.

We are a small-to-medium sized program, and your participation will not only lead to an excellent medical education for yourself but will also give you a chance to participate in building the program. Our administration and faculty are extremely flexible, highly accessible, and continually responsive to feedback in an effort to make the program the best it can be.

Clinical skills and knowledge can be acquired anywhere, but we make it our mission to provide an environment where each resident feels like they are an individual and that we want them to succeed. You will never be just a face in the crowd – you will form a close relationship not only with your peers but also with the faculty and administration, including the program director.
