Welcome to Graduate Medical Education
Welcome to the website for Graduate Medical Education at Florida Atlantic University located in Palm Beach County, Florida. Within our FAU Consortium, we are building ACGME accredited residencies in our five participating hospitals, with the first accredited residency in internal medicine accepting applications for NRMP 2014. This new ACGME residency program is provided in partnership with outstanding hospitals that serve the diverse populations of Boca Raton, Boynton Beach and Delray Beach. For more information on the internal medicine residency, click here.
This first ACGME program heralds the future of eight additional residencies in development at FAU. The Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at FAU will graduate its first class in 2015. We plan to offer that class four ACGME accredited residencies for NRMP 2015: emergency medicine, general surgery, psychiatry and internal medicine. The applications for these residencies have begun and the faculty identified for these new programs, which will be announced when ACGME accreditation is attained.
The FAU Consortium for Graduate Medical Education was incorporated in November 2011 to bring residencies in areas of manpower need for Florida. In addition, the Consortium members seek to recruit and retain the graduates of the FAU College of Medicine in our communities as succession planning for their hospitals. Currently, five community hospitals constitute the FAU Consortium: Bethesda East and West in Boynton Beach, Boca Raton Regional Hospital in Boca Raton, Delray Medical Center in Delray Beach, St. Mary’s Hospital and Palm Beach Children’s Hospital in West Palm Beach, and West Boca Medical Center in Boca Raton. All facilities are JCAHO accredited and many rank in the top 50 hospitals in the U.S. for quality care.
Palm Beach County is a heavily residential and professional community with its Florida share of retirees.

Furthermore, Palm Beach County has a well-established immigrant community from Central and South America and the Caribbean Islands with a large Cuban influence. From across the world, south Palm Beach County has been the destination for world travelers for its warm climate, white beaches, and sophisticated arts and culture.
