    Statement from the Associate

    Program Director

     

    “Jackson Memorial is really a unique place: a county hospital that’s also a quaternary care center deeply steeped in the history of Miami. Our mission is to protect and treat our most vulnerable, and to consider all patients as equal no matter their race, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation or gender identity. The width and breadth of pathology seen here is unparalleled and the life lessons we glean from our patients are invaluable… There’s just no place like Jackson. “

    Mark Supino, MD, FACEP

On ICU rotations, residents are an integral part of a small team allowing residents to have a hands-on critical care experience. In the Emergency Department, seniors work side-by-side with the attendings, with a focus on further developing the senior residents’ ability to function independently in a busy, high acuity emergency department.

Founded in 1992, Ryder has been dedicated in saving the lives of people with critical injuries, treating approximately 3,600 victims of major trauma each year. Emergency medicine residents are an integral part of the trauma team and participate in the initial evaluation and resuscitation of patients, including procedural interventions. They continue to manage patients while they are in the resuscitation bay until they are admitted or discharged. PGY1 and PGY3 residents spend 4 weeks at Ryder each year, while PGY2 residents have longitudinal shifts throughout the year.
