A Federally Qualified Health Center, Community Health of South Florida, Inc. (CHI) is the Sponsoring Institution (SI) and a national leader in clinical quality, ranking among the top 10% in the nation. CHI serves the southern portion of the Miami metropolitan area, also known as South Miami-Dade County and all of Monroe County to its south. Between 60,000 and 80,000 patients are typically served by CHI each year.? CHI treated over 8,500 patients for behavioral health disorders in 2021. Formally established in 2013, CHI’s Brodes H. Hartley Jr. Teaching Health Center is now home to two Graduate Medical Education residency programs: Family Medicine and psychiatry. Both programs are fully accredited by the ACGME and hold the status of Continued Accreditation.? According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, the supply of working mental health professionals in Florida’s 183 HRSA-designated Mental Health Care Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) meets only 16.13% of the need. Both Miami-Dade and Monroe counties contain HPSAs for mental health professionals.? As a result, CHI is now seeking to expand its psychiatry residency program.?? In 2021, CHI obtained approval from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for a permanent increase in resident complement from 15 to 20 residents. CHI is r
equesting THCGME support for an additional 5 FTE psychiatry residents, above its current baseline of 15 residents. CHI’s psychiatry residency is a four-year program, broadly based, with attention to the rapid advances in psychiatry and neurology including genetics, molecular biology, psychopharmacology, epidemiology, and imaging. The program provides residents with advanced and concentrated training to meet the needs of the medical school graduate desiring to be board certified in psychiatry.? The program’s patient population is ethnically diverse and the majority of patients reside in low-income households with over 79% having household incomes below 200% of the federally-defined poverty level. Accordingly, the program’s curriculum features core topics related to social determinants of health, health disparities and diversity, equity and inclusion.??? Total Positions Requested Under this Program for AY2022-2023:? Five (5) additional FTEs. Total Program FTEs for AY2022-2023 will be 5-6-4-5. All CHI psychiatry residents will perform rotations at hospital rotation sites that have provided resident training in prior academic year.
