    Is anyone familiar with this program? I think it's newly accredited, not too much information on their website.
    I'm an MD student in SoFla and would love to live & work in Aventura :)

    Unsure of the residency but the hospital itself has a pretty bad reputation. It is HCA so my guess it is an EMCARE residency. I dont know how much that matters to most.

    A friend of mine who is an attending in south florida doesn't have the best the things to say about HCA. When applying to residencies he explicitly told me to avoid HCA hospitals.

    I grew up in south Florida and all I remember is Aventura being the old person's hospital. Aventura has grown quite a bit since I was younger though. I have no idea what it's like now or anything about the residency. Are they just in one site?

    I grew up there too. I know the area well. I know the hospital fairly well as one of my family members spent a fair bit of time there. I cant speak to the residency but I can speak to the fact that the reputation of the hospital should be seen as a negative and IMO an EMcare residency should also be seen as a concerning feature.

    In the end, does the reputation of your residency matter that much if you're aiming to ultimately work in a community hospital? Board certification is a board certification, right?

    I think they just got ACGME accreditation this year. Mostly DO's in the program. PD also holds a DO degree. MSMC is in a great location, SoFla is decent and Miami Beach is clutch.
