The massive immigration of Cubans and Haitians to South Florida during the 1970s created a new challenge for health care professionals in South Florida. It resulted in the need for providers of medical education to modify their approach to medical training to reflect the cultural diversity of South Florida. The impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the 1980s further challenged the efficiency of the South Florida health care system when it came to meeting the needs of medically underserved immigrant groups. A major shift in the training curricula of providers of medical education needed to occur, moving from simple training in formal biomedical education to a more global view of medicine (Global Medicine).

In keeping with this trend, CHS provides:
- Culturally competent rotation in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Psychiatry and Pediatrics for medical students and residents from Haiti, other Caribbean Islands and US-based medical schools.

- Training on cultural sensitivity for health care and social service providers working with Haitian populations in the U.S. and Haiti. A significant number of health and social workers travel to Haiti for humanitarian endeavors. CHS has the necessary resources to train and prepare them to face the challenges of providing services in Haiti.
