Jackson Memorial Hospital

Jackson Memorial Hospital (JMH) serves as one of the main clinical sites for our training program. As the third largest teaching hospital in the United States, Jackson Memorial Hospital fosters an academic environment that supports the education and training of housestaff in an effort to continue producing excellent physicians. While rotating at this institution, housestaff are exposed to a wide range of endocrine conditions in the outpatient, inpatient and critical care settings. As the only county hospital serving Miami-Dade County, Jackson Memorial Hospital has over 1550 inpatient beds and allows clinicians the opportunity to provide care to the most undeserved populations. In so doing, our fellows not only have experience with a wide range of endocrine diseases,  but also a greater understanding of what it truly means to provide healthcare.


University of Miami Hospital

The University of Miami changed the face of modern health care in South Florida when it purchased Cedars Medical Center in late 2007. The 560-bed facility was renamed University of Miami Hospital and became the region’s first university-owned, multi-specialty, acute care hospital and the flagship facility of UHealth – University of Miami Health System.

Today at University of Miami Hospital, physicians on the faculty of the Miller School of Medicine partner with community physicians to plan and provide care, investigate new treatments still in the clinical research phase, and utilize the most advanced technologies available.
