Welcome to University of Miami Miller School of Medicine MD/PhD Program website. The UMMSM MD/PhD program provides a rich training environment that fosters the development of exceptional individuals as both biomedical researchers and clinicians. We believe that such dually trained individuals will become the future intellectual leaders in medicine dedicated to improving health through research. There has been a long tradition of research excellence and physician scientist training at the Miller School.  A more recent expansion of basic and clinical research here, Miami's diverse population and access to Latin America and the Caribbean, and the backdrop of a vibrant city make the Miller School a unique place for MD/PhD training.  We welcome you to explore our website and find out what the UMMSM and our program have to offer.

The 4th Annual MD/PhD Student Research Symposium was  held on Friday March 16, 2012.  The keynote speaker was Paul Farmer, MD., PhD. Chair, Department of Global Health & Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School and Chief, Division of Global Health Equity at Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston. The keynote talk which was held in the Lois Pope LIFE Center, Apex Auditorium, was widely attended by the Medical School leadership, including Deans Pascal Goldschmidt and Laurence Gardener, MD/PhD students, faculty and medical school students.

Dr. Farmer who is also the United Nations Deputy Special Envoy for Haiti, under Special Envoy Bill Clinton delivered the keynote talk titled “Community-based care for infectious diseases and the future of antibiotic resistance”.  In speaking about his work in Rwanda and Haiti he reinforced that all human beings regardless of economic and social differences should have access to quality health care. He also reiterated the importance of the community-based workers in the delivery of health care and has been able to successfully demonstrate that with proper treatment modality, directly observed therapy and top-of-the-line therapeutics, patients are able to achieve better efficacy regarding HAART therapeutics for the treatment of HIV and recently cholera.  more.....
