Miami Children’s Hospital LifeFlight® critical care transport team provides transport of critically ill children from referring hospitals to Miami Children’s Hospital pediatric care units. In addition to ground ambulance transports, the LifeFlight program offers air transport via helicopters operated by PHI, Inc., one of the world’s most experienced aircraft operators and the holder of a Part 135 Certificate issued by the Federal Aviation Administration, and through contracted fixed-wing aircraft charters.* Fellows gain the experience of Transport Medicine in several ways during the three years of training including: functioning as a medical control physician; transporting patients while on-call as the “Transport Fellow”; and participating in related didactic activities.
 
* Miami Children’s Hospital (MCH) is not a direct air carrier. Aircraft, both helicopter and fixed wing, are operated pursuant to contract with MCH, by companies which are FAA certificated.
