Inpatient Rotations

The intern inpatient experience is based at Florida Hospital Orlando, a 1300 bed, tertiary care center that is the second largest hospital in Florida. The senior inpatient rotations occur at Winter Park Memorial Hospital, a 300-bed community hospital that treats 15,000 patients annually.

Outpatient Office

Our new facility, the Centre for Family Medicine, opened in June 2010 and is located on the campus of Winter Park Memorial Hospital. Average time spent in office per week is 1 half-day for PGY-1, 3 half-days for PGY-2, and 4 half-days for PGY-3, in addition to many specialty clinics directed by the faculty. Residents also rotate through the VA Outpatient Facility in Orlando in many of their specialty clinics. Seniors perform nursing home visits at two nursing facilities on a monthly basis.

Electronic Medical Record System

Our residents have used the same EMR for the past 15 years. EpicCare© is the most successful Ambulatory EMR in the healthcare IT industry with proven features that streamline care processes, improve the community-wide health, and strengthen the patient-provider relationship. Our residents have access to EpicCare© in the hospital, at home or anywhere via the web.

Academic Time

Conferences are an integral part of the residency curriculum. Each Thursday afternoon is set aside for lectures and/or workshops that cover the core content of Family Medicine.

Call Schedule:

A Night float system in place for pediatrics, OB, and the Family Medicine Inpatient Services. Residents share weekend and holiday call.
