About The Department

A Message from The Chair

Welcome to the Department of Medicine at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. As a world class academic medical center we are distinctly the University of Miami, with the goal of our discoveries impacting the greater body of scientific knowledge and improving society. We see the effects of our teaching, research and service in global crises, our local South Florida community, or the patient in our exam room and the family that worries for her. Oftentimes we find ourselves just as changed as those we serve.

I invite you to learn more about who we are, what makes us special, and how we produce truly impactful and distinctive medicine.
