Leadership

Welcome to the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, where we empower our students to transform lives and serve our global community.

We have so much to be proud of. We are the No. 1 highest NIH-funded medical school in Florida and No. 40 in the nation. U.S News & World Report ranks the Miller School’s student body as the sixth most diverse among the country’s medical schools; the diversity of both our students and our faculty uniquely equip us to serve a multicultural, ethnically diverse patient population. Our outstanding researchers and clinicians are well positioned to deliver outstanding care and effectively address the most vexing challenges facing the medical profession today. 

The Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the Miller School, the only National Cancer Institute-designated center in South Florida, continues to study and tackle hard-to-treat cancers. This year, teams of top-tier researchers and physicians conducted hundreds of clinical trials, and work began on the new Transformational Cancer Research Building. Sylvester was also ranked among the best hospitals for cancer treatment. Also in 2022, for the 21st time and the 19th consecutive year, Bascom Palmer Eye Institute was named the nation’s best for treating eye-related conditions. Additionally, neurology/neurosurgery gained ten spots in the 2022 U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” rankings, rising to No. 25 in the country. 

Through NextGenMD, our revolutionary curriculum, we are equipping our students with the tools to become leaders while effectively and compassionately caring for patients everywhere. Small-group learning, early application of clinical skills, and an emphasis on dual degrees and scholarly pathways are already generating impressive results. We continue to expand these programs to shape students who are ready to tackle complex health challenges and create meaningful change.

I have never been more optimistic about the future of health care and the future of the Miller School of Medicine. We are more committed than ever before to our values of innovation, discovery, and service to our global community.
