Welcome from our Program Director
Welcome to the UCF COM/HCA Healthcare GME Consortium Psychiatry Residency Program of Greater Orlando!
Our goal is to equip residents with the necessary knowledge, skills and expertise to practice psychiatry in the 21st century. We seek residents who will emphasize the humane application of scientific knowledge, pursue lifelong self-directed learning, utilize efficacious and cost-effective treatments for patients, respond to the needs of individuals and the community, and adhere to the highest standards of academic excellence and professional ethics.
The Osceola Regional Medical Center Psychiatry 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.
The UCF COM/HCA Healthcare GME Consortium Psychiatry Residency Program of Greater Orlando is an exciting program committed to providing excellent training in patient care, promoting diversity, equity and inclusion across the training spectrum, and encouraging lifelong scholarly work.
The program provides diverse clinical training sites combined with outstanding didactics and active learning methodologies to cover the entire spectrum of psychiatry from neuroscience and psychopharmacology to the art and practice of psychotherapy.
Residents will do their clinical training at three main hospitals including Osceola Regional Medical Center, Orlando VA Medical Center and Nemours Children's Hospital. Multidisciplinary treatment team settings at Osceola Regional and Orlando VAMC will allow residents the opportunity to work with psychologists, social workers, nurses, pharmacists, medical students and other staff dedicated to patient care in addition to psychiatry supervisors.
Each resident will participate in patient safety and quality improvement projects throughout their training.
Additionally, in light of the increasing burnout and stress that is common in postgraduate medical training, we have placed special emphasis on wellness and meaningful resident connections in our program.
