Welcome from our Program Director

We are excited to welcome you to the UCF/HCA Healthcare GME Consortium (Gainesville) Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program! Our program accepts four residents per year.

Mission Statement

The North Florida Regional Medical Center Obstetrics and Gynecology 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

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.

Upon completion of our program, you will be fully prepared for the independent practice of obstetrics and gynecology. Furthermore, you will be fully prepared for advanced training in any of the subspecialties should you so desire and be fully equipped with the skills and knowledge to become a leader in our field.

Our community-based programs are connected to North Florida Regional Healthcare, an organization centered around North Florida Regional Medical Center located in beautiful North Central Florida.

Resident training affords close interaction among all residents and faculty and provides more opportunity for individual instruction. This will allow us to have just the right balance between freedom of action by the residents and supervision by the faculty while maintaining an emphasis on quality patient care.

Each curriculum is tailored to the individual resident's specific areas of interest, strengths and academic needs. In addition to general obstetrics and gynecology, our program includes rotations through all of the subspecialties, including maternal-fetal medicine (high-risk pregnancy), gynecologic oncology, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, Family Planning, and female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. Our full-service obstetrics/gynecology clinic will provide a wide range of experience and pathology.

We are committed to innovative methods of teaching obstetrics and gynecology to enhance the educational experience and to facilitate each resident’s learning style. We are firmly committed to helping you achieve your full professional and personal potential within an atmosphere of support and mutual respect.
