Teaching and Education

The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s pediatric residency is the largest residency program in the state of Florida and among the largest in the United States. Holtz Children’s Hospital, the program’s hub, is a unique, primary/tertiary/quaternary pediatric facility, serving both the multi ethnic urban population of South Florida, and regional and international referrals. The hospital complex and the adjacent University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine campus comprise one of the largest medical centers in the southeast. The University of Miami is one of the nation’s top 50 research universities, and the Miller School ranks #1 in NIH awards among all Florida medical schools. We were proud to have been one of 10 national sites for the Anne E. Dyson Community Pediatrics Training Initiative, offering a child advocacy curriculum, designated research exposure and abundant opportunities for community outreach. In fact, a large proportion of Miami/Dade pediatricians were trained in our residency program!

Residents coordinate patient care and participate in every aspect of the educational curriculum. Graduates from our program are widely considered, expertly trained and diligent. Based on this reputation, our graduates have great success securing highly sought-after fellowship positions in prestigious institutions all over the U.S. Over the past 10 years, our graduates have been welcomed for subspecialty training at some of our nation’s premier hospitals and academic medical centers.
