UCF is pleased to work with HCA Healthcare and the Orlando VA Medical Center to sponsor residency and fellowship programs accredited by the ACGME. There are now 28 residency and fellowship programs approved by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in UCF/HCA Healthcare GME consortium with approximately 520 residents and fellows in four major locations: Gainesville (North Florida Regional Medical Center), Greater Orlando (Osceola Regional Medical Center and Orlando VAMC), Ocala (Ocala Health), and Pensacola (West Florida Hospital). Additional programs are planned in Pensacola, Tallahassee and other locations. The new training programs help address ongoing doctor shortages and the demand for high quality training programs.

The mission of University of Central Florida/HCA Healthcare GME is to educate, train and inspire our trainees to become exemplary physicians who are focused on high quality patient-centered healthcare within a framework that meets or exceeds accreditation requirements. We aim to provide a structured learning environment that:

  • Creates a climate of clinical inquiry between trainees and faculty
  • Promotes training experiences that prioritize teamwork, diversity, inclusion, and evidence-based teaching throughout the communities we serve
  • Enhances quality of care and patient lives through the application of medical advances and innovation
  • Recruits and retains high-qualified and diverse health care professionals and educators
