Welcome Back Visits

Welcome Back Visit is an opportunity for you to get to know the Executive Leadership team that helped build the College from the ground up. You will hear from our current students about their experiences on everything from curriculum to rotations and have an opportunity to ask them any questions you would like. You will be learning about the Green Family Foundation NeighborhoodHELP program and hearing first-hand from participants about their involvement in this unique program. You will also have a chance to participate in a simulation activity in our state-of-the-art Albert and Debbie Tano Simulation Center while touring our beautiful campus and facilities. The day will end with a resource fair and reception (complete with Cuban cafecito) where you and your guest will have a chance to socialize with your future classmates and faculty and learn more about all the exciting opportunities available at HWCOM.

Our goal for this Welcome Back Visit is that you will get an honest look at what the FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine is all about. Come share in our excitement!

I was drawn to the FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine because of their emphasis on preventative medicine and the early access to patients. NeighborhoodHELP will give us hands on practice and cooperation with other graduate disciplines that are not available at other medical programs.Mary "Molly" Garland, Alumna Class of 2013
