Achieving Clinical Excellence

Clinical Excellence

The Clinic IS  the Classroom at NSU MD

An important priority at NSU MD is pairing you with clinical leaders to ensure you receive significant hands-on practice throughout the program. Spending more time learning directly from experienced academic and community physicians, rather than in a classroom, provides you with a better understanding of medicine specialties and sub-specialties, as well as the real-world challenges and opportunities within each.

Inspiring and Achieving Clinical Excellence

  • Attracting innovative and respected physician leaders to serve as your advisors, educators and mentors
  • Following a philosophy of responsiveness, openness, transparency and camaraderie
  • Preparing you to ethically and enthusiastically treat tomorrow’s health care challenges
  • Partnering with leading health care organizations and hospitals to offer you diverse clinical opportunities

Onsite Teaching and Research Hospital

Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) East Florida is building a 200+ bed teaching and research hospital, integrated with NSU’s research centers and clinical trial programs right on NSU’s Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus, in the heart of Broward County. With easy highway and airport access, the comprehensive care provided will not only benefit those in South Florida, but also visitors from other areas—including the Caribbean and Latin America.

Clinical Sites for Core Rotations

NSU MD has established a partnership with HCA East Florida Division to provide the core M3 and M4 clinical rotations as well as many elective rotations at multiple HCA hospitals on the southeast coast of Florida. In addition, NSU MD is affiliated with Nemours Children’s Hospital in Lake Nona, where students rotate in pediatrics and with several other regional hospitals, allowing students to engage in elective rotations at these sites.
