Welcome Message

Welcome to the International Medicine Institute

Welcome to the International Medicine Institute (IMI). Here on our website, you’ll find details about the groundbreaking work that the IMI is carrying out, from providing a gateway to the inventive healthcare services and procedures that UHealth’s 1,500 physicians offer, to empowering top physicians from our hemisphere and around the word with medical education and practical experiences, and conducting pioneering international clinical trials that save lives.

The IMI takes a comprehensive approach to healthcare, specializing in a high touch methodology to pave the way for international patients to access leading healthcare services, and international practitioners to receive education and engage in research in their home countries. I’d like to share some details about this work with you.

Our patient care is unrivaled.UHealth International provides patients with top-ranked physicians, advanced technology, front-line therapies and innovative surgical procedures. We also ensure our patients from abroad have a seamless experience here in Florida — every international patient has their own personal International Coordinator who plans their appointments and covers every detail of their visit, depending on the care and services needed. Our Medical Director is also available for primary care appointments, and performs Executive Physicals for those seeking a comprehensive evaluation in an efficient, one-stop, one-day visit.

Our research and clinical trials are diverse, but share a common aim: unlocking the future of medicine today. We work with individuals and institutions around Latin America — from Colombia to Panama to Paraguay — to generate new knowledge. And we translate this knowledge into real-world applications and technologies that save lives. For example: the more than 100transcatheter aortic valve replacements we’ve carried out, serving patients who couldn’t risk the danger of open heart surgery.

Our educational programs equip talented doctors and medical students with the tools and skills they need to make a difference around the world. Through the William J. Harrington Medical Training Programs and our Global Observership Program, we’ve built a network of thousands of doctors across every continent.

Whether you’re a patient, researcher, physician or medical student, you’re in the best of hands at the International Medicine Institute and UHealth International. Thank you for visiting. We look forward to serving your healthcare needs.
