Bold Strides in Biomedicine

A top 20 academic medical center drawing patients from near and far, a global force for better health, a locus of vital discoveries and biotech expertise: The Miller School of Medicine’s vision for 2020 is crystal clear.

Medicine moves fast—especially here. Miami is a dynamic place to learn, to innovate, to practice health care that rises to—and transcends—every challenge it faces. The Miller School of Medicine sets the pace, providing living proof of the transformational impact of a superb biomedical enterprise.

    Key Goals
  • Build a Biomedical Research Powerhouse
  • Invest in Leading-Edge Facilities and Equipment
  • Transform the Face of Medicine/Clinical Initiatives
  • Train the Next Generation of Physician-Scientists and Public-Scientists and Public Health Leaders

Bench-to-bedside care isn’t just a catchphrase; it’s our bedrock. From expertise that swings immediately into action for life-or-death emergencies to the complexities of treating cancer or preserving eyesight for a lifetime, our patient care reflects state-of-the-art insights and interdisciplinary teamwork. Philanthropic support plays a vital role, allowing our physician-scientists to discover what’s possible—then make it happen.

Every day, we open up new worlds of well-being. Through comprehensive services in five counties and scores of outreach programs, the Miller School touches our neighbors’ lives in countless ways. Our international medicine programs foster educational and clinical partnerships that attract patients from around the world, improve care in distant locales, and forge unforgettable lessons in healing.

Effective care tomorrow demands outstanding education today. Medicine is decoding the human genome in unprecedented detail—yet still fights deadly diseases and vast health disparities. Highly trained physicians and scientists will lead the charge and light the way. That’s why scholarships and fellowships for future health care professionals—and the educational resources to prepare them for productive careers in a rapidly changing field—are key Momentum2 goals.

Momentum2 will make it possible for the University of Miami to meet today’s health care needs. To anticipate tomorrow’s. And to make historic progress toward the major new advances that are now within our grasp.
