Welcome to The Brodes Hartley Jr. Teaching Health Center at Community Health of South Florida, Inc. We are proud to have become the first-ever teaching health center at a community health center in the State of Florida.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Welcome to The Brodes H. Hartley Jr. Teaching Health Center at Community Health of South Florida, Inc. We are proud to have become the first-ever teaching health center at a community health center in the State of Florida. Our vision to become an educational institution of excellence is now realized. This program supports the expansion of medical primary care, psychiatry, and obstetrics and gynecology residency training in a community-ambulatory setting.

This is such important and exciting news for CHI. Our mission is to provide affordable quality primary and behavioral health care services to all residents in rapidly growing South Florida. The Brodes H. Hartley Jr. Teaching Health Center at CHI brings a higher level of quality to our organization that has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past 40 years. From its humble beginnings of providing urgent care in trailers to primarily indigent and migrant workers, CHI now provides a wide range of health care to all types of people, both uninsured and insured. We now have 11 state-of-the-art primary care centers and 31 school-based programs, with active plans to grow.

CHI will be contributing to the national effort to train primary care clinicians to meet the needs of the many newly insured from the Affordable Care Act. This funding opportunity supports projects, like ours, to improve the nation’s access to well-trained primary care physicians by providing community-based residency training.

We encourage our graduates to practice in medically underserved communities and areas of critical need not only in the State of Florida, but wherever they eventually settle, when they complete their training.

We have created this section of our website to provide you with information on the programs that we offer within The Brodes H. Hartley Jr. Teaching Health Center at CHI. We look forward to showing you the significant benefits of training in our health centers and living in the community of South Florida.

Best wishes on the start of your post-graduate medical education at The Brodes H. Hartley Jr. Teaching Health Center at CHI.

We welcome the inaugural group of residents at the very first community training health center in the State of Florida, right here at Community Health of South Florida, Inc. (CHI).
MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER
We welcome the inaugural group of residents at the very first community training health center in the State of Florida, right here at Community Health of South Florida, Inc. (CHI).
Residents will be headquartered at CHI and they will graduate from it as their official training site. But residents will also rotate through local hospitals and with local specialists. We will hold our residents to the highest standard as they will help increase CHI’s visibility in the health care community and improve our ability to recruit primary care clinicians in the future.
The bar will be set high by the first group of residents who will practice in family medicine, psychiatry, and obstetrics and gynecology. The training will be intense and board certification rates at graduation have to be high. Our goal is to be competitive among other residency options in order to get good quality residents for subsequent years. We are ready and welcome the exciting addition to the CHI team.
