Residency Overview

This is a three-year ACGME-accredited PM&R training program at Jackson Memorial Hospital/University of Miami. Our task goes well beyond learning skills or acquiring knowledge. We regard this residency program as one that provides a large diverse patient setting for educating residents. We have been entrusted with the care of the sick and disabled. We must work together to serve them in the most comprehensive and compassionate manner possible.

We ensure that each resident receives a high quality educational and personal growth experience during their years with the program. For the three years, each resident will become part of the “face” that the Department of Rehabilitation assumes among our colleagues in the hospital and medical school.
