Urban Health


Started in 2017, the Urban Health Track is a two-year track designed to help develop leaders in primary care and urban/underserved care for South Florida. This is a primary care oriented curriculum, designed during elective time during PGY-3 and PGY-4 years to provide dedicated training experiences in psychiatry, HIV primary care, women’s health, dermatology, and musculoskeletal examination/procedures. Additional exposures are actively being developed and include rotation opportunities in the following areas:

  • Planned Parenthood

  • Rotations at a local Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC)

  • Prison Medicine

The Urban Health curriculum is designed to start during PGY-3 year. It is open to all Med-Peds residents who are interested along with Internal Medicine residents.
