Mission Statement

The North Florida Regional Medical Center Geriatric Medicine Residency Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.

Program Overview

Thank you for your interest in the Geriatric Medicine Fellowship at North Florida Regional Medical Center. Our fellowship has initial accreditation with the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

The Geriatric Medicine Fellowship is a one-year fellowship that seeks to train family medicine and/or internal medicine physicians in the various aspects of clinical geriatrics. The goal of this program is to prepare graduates to be able to obtain board certification in geriatric medicine and to be capable of excellent performance in geriatric care as practitioners, educators, administrators or directors of elder care facilities.

We believe the future of medicine begins in our communities. Our goal is to produce outstanding physicians who will meet the growing healthcare needs of our local residents. The purpose of the HCA Healthcare GME program is to develop community-based programs with curriculums that provide residents with a broad and complete education in their chosen medical field.

Each curriculum is tailored to the individual resident's specific areas of interest, strengths and academic needs. Our programs are connected to North Florida Regional Healthcare, an organization centered around North Florida Regional Medical Center located in beautiful North Central Florida.

We are looking forward to showing you all that North Florida Regional Medical Center has to offer.
