Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine

Miller School of Medicine

The Miller School of Medicine is one of the nation’s leading centers of medical care and education and a global force for biomedical progress.

Founded in 1952, the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine serves South Florida, South America, and the Caribbean with outstanding education, research, patient care, and community service. With more than 1 million patient encounters each year, the school is a distinctive resource for breakthrough treatments of cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, spinal cord injury, sight and hearing loss, congenital disorders in infants and children, and many other serious conditions. Among the school's faculty are renowned experts in cutting-edge biomedical disciplines such as genomics, stem cell therapies, fetal surgery, organ transplant, and nanotechnology. The school delivers high-quality services through a vast clinical infrastructure that includes University of Miami Hospital, while its international programs encompass initiatives in locales around the world.

Momentum2 will support the Miller School’s quest to build a 21st-century biomedical enterprise that not only responds effectively to disease and disability, but creates innovative preventive and proactive interventions to keep people healthy for a lifetime. Campaign resources to strengthen education and research programs, scholarships, infrastructure, and translational medicine initiatives will enable the Miller School to become one of the nation’s top 20 medical schools by 2020 as well as a premier medical destination for South Florida and points beyond; emerge as a major international biotechnology and biomedical hub; increase its international reach; and enhance Miami’s reputation as a world-class city.
