PBCGME history

Our story started back in 1975, when what is now JFK Medical Center North Campus was founded. Today, PBCGME comprises several modern, high-quality facilities and is accredited for over 120 postgraduate training positions in nine programs.

Medical School Affiliations

PBCGME holds primary affiliations with, and is responsible for core training of medical students from Nova Southeastern University and the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences.


Above all else we are committed to the care that is rendered to the patients of our attendings, as well as that which will be provided to the patients of our graduates. In recognition of this commitment, we will strive to deliver high quality, cost-effective graduate medical education programs utilizing the resources of our hospitals, faculty and community.

In pursuit of our mission, we believe the following value statements are essential and timeless:

  • We recognize and affirm the obligation to our community to graduate the most highly-qualified physicians possible.
  • We will not graduate any individual who we would not feel comfortable referring a loved one to.
  • We act with absolute honesty, integrity and fairness in the way we conduct our business and the way we live our lives.
  • We trust our colleagues as valuable members of our education team and pledge to treat one another with loyalty, respect, and dignity.
