The Department of Security has free paper maps of the Medical campus, available at their offices on the first floor of Dominion Parking Garage, Suite 145. (This is the same place you get your physical ID badge.) See also the "interactive map" links at left.
The Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach metropolitan area, commonly referred to as the Tri-County area, encompasses Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. It is the largest urbanized area in Florida and in the southern US, with a population of over 5M.
Founded in 1925, the University of Miami is the largest private employer in Miami-Dade, with more than 10,000 employees. Florida's first accredited medical school, the UM School of Medicine was established in 1952.
The medical campus is the largest (by employment) of UM's five campuses.
The Alamo opened in 1918, as the City of Miami Hospital. It was renamed Jackson Memorial Hospital in 1924, in honor of its original medical director James M. Jackson.
More than 6,000 University of Miami faculty and staff work on medical campus, along with more than 10,000 Jackson Health System employees.
A tertiary care hospital and the major teaching facility for the University of Miami School of Medicine, Jackson is one of the largest and busiest hospitals in the US.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the new Clinical Research Building (CRB) and Wellness Center was held on January 20, 2004. The facility opened in late 2006. The CRB is the first of six new medical facilities the School of Medicine plans in the next few years.
The CRB is home to more than 300,000 square feet of clinical research space, in such areas as patient safety, pediatrics, and clinical pharmacology.
With more than 1,300 ongoing projects funded by some $200 million in external grants and contracts to UM faculty, the school ranks in the top third among US medical schools in terms of research funding.
Expanding the scope and scale of research on the medical campus is a core institutional goal.
- the Batchelor Children’s Research Institute, which consolidates research activities of the Department of Pediatrics;
- the Lois Pope LIFE Center, a nucleus for neurosciences research and the home of The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis;
- the Papanicolaou Cancer Research Building;
- the R. Bunn Gautier Biochemistry Building; and
- the Rowland and Sylvia Schaefer Building, housing the Diabetes Research Institute.
Each year the medical school’s 700 faculty physicians and some 5,000 other employees support a system that provides health care services in more than a million patient encounters, in primary care and more than 30 specialties.
More than 1,000 students are engaged in health professions training programs here.
In addition to Jackson, UM clinical facilities are located at the Miami Veterans Affairs Medical Center, five primary care centers throughout Miami-Dade County, and a half-dozen area hospitals.
