    Miami AICM Clinic Locations

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone,

    Can any current or recent AICM student in Miami tell me the locations for clinics/offices/hospitals and how often they've had to go? In a previous thread I've heard Davie, Plantation, Homestead, Hialeah as locations, but what is the complete list for this semester?

    Also, what areas/cities are good to live in for commuting purposes? I know it's all over but yeah. Please help out my wife and I as we look for an apartment for the spring.

    Thanks in advance!

    I recommend Miami Lakes, which is where I lived. With traffic the commute can be 45 minutes or so, but without traffic it's not bad. It's more of a "suburban" feel than downtown and it's much more laid-back. Shopping and restaurants within walking distance. I lived at Executive Apartments.

    There is no complete list of clinical sites. There are too many to list over and no one knows them until the semester starts. They really are all-over, so there's no ideal place to live. I have a theory that they look at where you live, though, before they assign your rotations, because mine were all north of Miami Lakes, which was close for me, but would have been crazy far for people living downtown. Don't know if that was just a coincidence, but it worked out well. Hope that helps and good luck!

    You're going to wind up driving to a site at one point or another, so where you live isn't going to make a huge difference. I lived in South Miami a couple of blocks from the 7000 building and thought it was a pretty good area. Some people tried to live close to the Hyatt. Rents and parking can be a problem downtown though. You should at least try to pick a safe area with rents that correspond with how much you can pay.
    Then again, I like to think of anything stupid I've done as a "learning experience." It makes me feel less stupid. PJ O'Rourke.
