Pediatric Residency Program

Department of Pediatrics

Although ours is among the largest pediatric training centers in Florida and the United States, our residents would say that our program doesn’t seem like it.

Residents learn and train in a demanding, yet supportive environment. They are supervised and taught by skilled, dedicated faculty. Our program prides itself on its “residentricity.” Residents coordinate all patient care and participate in every aspect of the educational curriculum. There are no private patients; all patients are cared for by pediatric residents. Our ideal balance of resident autonomy and faculty supervision fosters an exciting and motivational educational atmosphere.

The Holtz Children's Hospital, the program’s hub, is a unique, primary/tertiary/quaternary pediatric facility, serving both the multiethnic urban population of South Florida, as well as regional and international patients.

The hospital complex and the adjacent University of Miami 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. The Miller School ranks #1 in NIH awards among all Florida medical schools.

Our program mirrors the global, diverse flavor of Miami, both in patient population and resident roster, making it rich in cultural diversity and international exposure. We are fortunate to attract outstanding trainees from all over the United States and abroad, and our selection process is careful and objective. If you seek superior pediatric training in a superior academic environment, a solid platform from which to launch your career, and the opportunity to live and work in beautiful and vibrant Miami, we may be the program for you.

Thanks for your interest in our program. We hope you visit soon and discover all we have to offer. For more information, please contact us.
