Training the Next Generation of Health Care Professionals

Mission Statement: To deliver safe, accessible, compassionate and culturally competent quality health care services to the people of South Florida while training the next generation of health care professionals.

3015The mission of the residency  programs combines the professional  expertise, teaching services and  educational resources into a community  teaching health center that serves a  highly diverse and underserved  population. CHI, the affiliated teaching  hospitals, community partners, leadership, Graduate Medical Education faculty and allied professionals are committed to providing postdoctoral training that facilitates  residents’ professional, ethical and  personal development.

GME programs ensure and support safe and high-quality patient care through our educational programs, evaluation process and resident supervision. CHI’s goal is to provide a well-balanced training experience along with an excellent academic foundation. Unique components of the residency programs curriculum include the social determinants of health, integration of new and emerging topic areas including instruction in medical ethics, medical genomics, medical informatics, all-hazards preparedness, cultural sensitivity and patient literacy. Our GME programs offer advanced education of the highest quality combining teaching, clinical service, safe patient care and research.


Upon program completion, residents will be capable of providing comprehensive, patient-centered care with compassion. According to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), studies show that residents who graduate from community health centers tend to choose to practice in health centers and in other comparable settings that serve underserved minorities and high-risk populations.

“Our goal is to have well-rounded trained physicians. We anticipate a good retention rate of our graduates to practice at CHI, or in a similar setting,” said Dr. Elizabeth Philippe, Associate DIO, Family Medicine Program Director and Chief of Family Medicine.
