We continue our series of features on community physicians who serve as preceptors at the UCF College of Medicine. Today we highlight Dr. Heather Schweizer, a Neurology specialist at Ocala Regional Medical Center and West Marion Community Hospital. Dr. Schweizer is a graduate of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey School of Osteopathic Medicine.  Her residency training in Neurology was at the Larkin Community Hospital in Coral Gables, FL. Dr. Schweizer is a neuro-hospitalist and stroke expert, currently teaching UCF medicl students at Ocala Regional Medical Center and West Marion Community Hospital. 

What students had to say:

  • “Dr. Schweizer would always be patient with me, especially in the beginning, and took the time to run through every case with me while also pointing out unique aspects of neurology.”
  • “She was always happy to have me there and answer any questions I may have had despite how busy she was (and trust me, she was super busy). She had a wonderful team of nurse practitioners who were happy to teach as well. I had a wonderful experience here and would recommend this site to any student.”
  • “Dr. Schweizer asked great clinical questions that I’m sure will help me provide better care to patients in the future.”
