In collaboration with the UCF College of Medicine, our residents are involved in community outreach programs for the underserved population in Central Florida.
The KNIGHTS (Keeping Neighbors In Good Health Through Service) Clinic is coordinated by medical students at UCF COM and staffed by student and physician volunteers from all areas of study, including medical, nursing, undergraduate, and graduate students, working in interdisciplinary teams alongside community collaborators and under the guided supervision of licensed practitioners. This is an excellent opportunity for residents to supervise/precept first-year medical students in their history taking.
