The Kaplan international center at Miami is located in a very nice and peaceful location, and study areas are quiet and comfortable. The support community onsite is friendly and very skillful in organizing study areas and learning materials. The Kaplan faculty is exceptional with many years of clinical and teaching experience. The advisors have excellent knowledge on study materials for licensing exams, are very efficient in setting up ACLS and PALS certifications, and are highly resourceful in helping to find clinical observerships. I also benefited a lot from the guided study sessions at the center, which help you review any topic in a comprehensive way.
