Moving to Miami, FL

Congratulations! You have been accepted to one of the top-ranked medical schools in the nation. It’s time to make Miami home. 

We understand that this is a time of transition. Not only are you adjusting to the demands of medical school, residency, or fellowship training, but you are also learning your way around a new city. We provide the support you need to adapt.

As the second largest city in Florida, Miami and the surrounding areas offer a variety of housing and transportation choices for individuals, couples, and families. Miami housing options are as unique as our city – from contemporary beachside condominiums to urban studio apartments, gated suburban communities to historic neighborhoods.

While a fresh start can be exhilarating, moving can be a challenge – whether across town, across country, or across oceans. Many future students visit Miami before the move. Spending a few days touring the city acquaints you with the community and helps you decide where you want to live.
