We welcome our physicians-in-training to ORMC and the community we serve. As newly-graduated physicians they are given the opportunity to gain the clinical experience and knowledge they need to become highly qualified physicians in these specialties.
Our mission is to prepare future physicians for lives of service to patients and to their profession.
To accomplish this:
- Our faculty mentors and prepares residents for careers characterized by commitment to excellence and quality patient care.
- Our curriculums employ a comprehensive approach to ensure residents develop excellent clinical skills and necessary core competencies.
- Physicians-in-training work alongside staff members that model compassionate and ethical patient care, and provide support and supervision to ensure patient safety.
At ORMC we have both the obligation and honor to display exemplary best practice and quality, evidenced-based, physician-led patient care. We are committed to enhancing the standard of healthcare through accessible and consistent care. We believe that our commitment to the future generation of health care providers will ensure that they are prepared for the evolving healthcare needs of culturally diverse community, the State of Florida and the rest of the country.
