Welcome From the Program Director

UCF COM/HCA GME Consortium
Internal Medicine Residency Program

We are UCF’s inaugural residency program, created with two nationally recognized leaders in adult patient care – HCA Healthcare and the U.S. Veteran’s Administration.

Because of this partnership, you will train at Hospital Corporation of America’s Osceola Regional Medical Center — a large tertiary care hospital with 87,000 emergency visits and 18,000+ admissions a year – and the Orlando VA Medical Center, one of the nation’s largest veterans healthcare facilities and home to its national simulation and training center.

Our program is focused on helping you achieve your professional dreams as we meet the health care needs of the communities we serve. We are committed to providing a dynamic, engaging education that helps you find meaning and joy in the practice of medicine. We offer a wide array of clinical and educational opportunities to help you create a pathway to achieving your personal goals. We are dedicated to training outstanding physicians in an academic, innovative, collegial environment that fosters the spirit of lifelong learning. Our program features cutting edge medicine, exciting scholarly opportunities, patient diversity and a commitment to physician engagement and wellness. We feel strongly that diversity is critical to creating an environment of truly collaborative learning and teamwork. We aim to create an inclusive and diverse workplace that fosters a culture where all faculty, staff and trainees are highly valued, supported and celebrated. 

Thank you for your interest in our program. We are extremely proud of our residents and their accomplishments and we look forward to providing you more information about our exciting training program.
