On behalf of the Office of Graduate Medical Education, our program directors, residents, faculty, and teaching staff welcome you to our graduate medical education programs at the Nova Southeastern University Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine (KPCOM). Our mission as an ACGME-accredited GME sponsoring institution is to partner collaboratively with hospitals and other health care providers to improve health care and population health by advancing the quality of resident physicians’ education.
As the sponsoring institution, KPCOM will ensure that the programs meet or exceed all Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and Residency Review Committee (RRC) general and specific requirements. We are deeply committed to sponsoring residency and fellowship programs that reflect our high professional standards and establish learning and working environments based on a culture of respect for residents’, fellows’, and physicians’ well-being. All programs will promote improved quality of care to the patient population, high quality provider/patient communication skills, and will emphasize personal and professional development along with ethical and humanistic behavior for the trainees in the programs.
We invite you to read about our extensive integrated training opportunities that will guide you through your personal and professional growth. Our exceptional faculty strive to teach dedicated diverse residents and fellows, who are eager to learn, through a combination of clinical, didactic, and mentored experiences spanning all age and ethnic groups.
Thank you for your interest in our GME programs. If you have questions about how to apply to our programs, please review our program webpages or reach out to us in the GME office.
