On Monday, December 10, 2007, Florida International University College of Medicine (FIU) signed an affiliation agreement with Nicklaus Children's Hospital. The affiliation agreement between Nicklaus Children's Hospital and FIU adds an undergraduate dimension to the already existing Nicklaus Children's Hospital educational programs. Nicklaus Children's Hospital will be the site for training of FIU Medical Students in Pediatrics. Nicklaus Children's Hospital and FIU are in the process of recruiting a Chairman for the Department of Pediatrics. The FIU department of Pediatrics will be based at Nicklaus Children's Hospital.
