Thank you so much for your interest and consideration in the UCF/HCA Internal Medicine Residency Program. We are delighted to give you a detailed introduction to the city of Orlando and our training.
The City of Orlando needs no introduction. It is a major metropolitan city in Central Florida and is a big attraction for theme park fans. Tennis players and golfers love Orlando for its great weather and facilities. Living in Orlando almost feels like being on vacation every day! After working hard on clinical rotations, you have so much to do and explore in the city. There are several nearby beaches within an hour’s drive so it’s easy to spend your day off relaxing at the beach. This city has a great night life, shopping malls and some of the best restaurants. Road trips to Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, St. Augustine and Key West are also a very popular for residents when they want to get out of town.
Our program is fun, exciting and spending time with the faculty, residents and medical students is the biggest highlight of our day. We provide a positive and nurturing learning environment by implementing an advanced educational program based on highly effective teaching principles. We also organize resident retreats, fun social events and team-building activities on a regular basis.
Our residency is highly evolved academically and is unique in incorporating innovative teaching concepts based on published research. We take feedback from our residents very seriously and are constantly growing and improving based on resident evaluations. We have a highly specialized and innovative faculty in graduate medical education, who are invested in creating an outstanding educational program.
We are part of the emerging Medical City in Orlando’s Lake Nona area. Our residents come from an exceptionally diverse backgrounds and we are proud of the state-of-the-art facilities at our sites: Orlando VA Healthcare System, UCF Health and HCA Florida Osceola Hospital.
