We are excited to announce that PCLP will be bringing back Miami, FL as a placement city for 2020!
Community health center (CHC) Site Partners for PCLP in 2020 will be updated in the coming weeks. In past years, Scholars have completed their projects at Borinquen Medical Centers of Miami-Dade, Miami Beach Community Health Center, Citrus Health Network, and Care Resource. For a basic overview of Miami’s city and demographic information, view the latest United States Census Bureau’s demographics estimates.
Site Supervisors are responsible for coordinating the program on-site, providing site orientation and scheduling time for leadership training, webinar participation and other related program activities.
Faculty Advisors provide guidance for the PCLP Project and offer professional and academic mentoring.
Housing & Transportation
Read below to find out more about housing and transportation options. Please keep in mind that PCLP does not endorse any landlord, management, company, or individual in these sites.
Downtown Miami is typically about eight miles, or a 20 minute drive, away from our Miami Site Partners. When searching for housing, keep in mind that you will have to commute to your Site Partner as well as to other community sites, and should think about access to internet, transportation, etc. Below, we have provided a starting point for your housing search that have been helpful for previous PCLP Scholars.
- Craigslist – Go to the Miami metro page and search within “housing” or “sublets/temporary,” and then click on the tabs at the top for specific cities.
- Rotating Room – Subletting site for fourth year medical students doing fourth-year-away rotations.
- AirBnB – Search for Miami, FL and select the dates you would need based on your time block.
- Ross University School of Medicine: Clinical Housing Miami – Listing of available housing.
- Student Doctor Network – Classifieds of available housing.
- Florida International University – Message boards and access to FIU’s off-campus housing database.
Keep in mind that having a car is the best means of transportation and will allow you travel flexibility and convenience. However, if it’s impossible to have a car during your service-learning experience, there are public transportation options in the Miami area.
- Metrobus and Metrorail – Can search routes on the website or on Google Maps.
- A Regional Monthly Pass for unlimited transfers can be purchased for $145.
