Graduate Medical Education
Welcome to the Office of Graduate Medical Education at the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine (HWCOM) of Florida International University (FIU). We are affiliated with several residency training programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education; including programs in emergency medicine, family medicine, internal medicine, and psychiatry.
Our growing research enterprise conducts basic, applied, translational, clinical, and interdisciplinary research that leverages South Florida’s diverse demographics, improves the health of the South Florida community, and aligns with national global health trends. Conducted by our faculty, residents, and students, this research is inspired by and responds to the health needs of people living in South Florida.
Our educational programs continue to expand, consistent with our strategic priorities. In 2020, we received initial accreditation by the ACGME as a Sponsoring Institution to develop our first graduate medical education residency program. In partnership with local affiliates, the Miami Veterans Affairs Healthcare System and Jackson Memorial Hospital, we hope to further GME at FIU HWCOM with our inaugural Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency Program.
