Welcome from our Program Director

Welcome to the UCF/HCA Healthcare GME Consortium Emergency Medicine Residency of Greater Orlando!

Our goal is to combine excellence in clinical skills with the humanity of the compassionate physician to produce outstanding patient-centered care.

Mission Statement

The Osceola Regional Medical Center Emergency Medicine Residency Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.

Program Overview

The Emergency Medicine Residency Program is a three-year allopathic medicine program. It is approved by the ACGME for a total of 21 residents.

We consider our program to be an academic/community hybrid model consisting of a well-respected hospital and outstanding medical school that will provide you with an excellent education in emergency medicine. It's an education that will prepare you for the changing face of EM and the ability to practice in any environment.

Our residency values modern adult learning techniques such as flipped classroom approaches, small group learning and frequent simulation workshops. With smaller class sizes, residents are closely mentored to help them achieve their goals and dreams. Wellness is paramount in our residency program which is represented in our didactics, retreats, and shift schedules.

The UCF/HCA Healthcare GME Consortium sponsors our program at Osceola Regional Medical Center where you will be exposed to a high acuity patient population in an unopposed educational atmosphere.

Osceola Regional Medical Center's Emergency Department is busy and diverse and the UCF College of Medicine is a forward-thinking, innovative medical school. We are proud to contribute to its pioneering spirit, and we invite you to consider training in our program.

The didactic curriculum follows an 18-month repeating schedule.

There are some lecture-driven sessions, but the majority of didactic sessions are small group discussions and interactive learning sessions, including several simulation sessions in our UCF Simulation Center and an annual cadaver procedure session.

We are committed to providing an interactive and stimulating didactic experience. Modalities usually include problem-based, evidence-based, and computer-based learning.
