Education and Training

We believe education is an essential component of healthcare. When institutions equip physicians with the proper training and tools, those doctors develop the capacity and are equipped to conduct cutting-edge research and deliver life-saving care.

This is why the International Medicine Institute is devoted to providing world-class education programs, and excellence in medical education and training to healthcare professionals and physicians from around the globe.

Indeed, the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine is currently the only academic medical center in South Florida with international reach. The institution is also ranked in the top third among U.S. medical schools for research funding awarded.
