Mission Statement

The Osceola Regional Medical Center Transitional Year 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

Our transitional year residents will complete these requirements by rotating through the emergency department, general internal medicine inpatient wards, adult intensive care unit, general internal medicine ambulatory clinic, and surgery.
