University of Central Florida medical center

A new General Surgery Residency Program based at Osceola Regional Medical Center in Central Florida has recently received initial accreditation from the ACGME for 15 categorical positions. The program is seeking immediate applicants and will accept three categorical residents per year. Applications should be submitted through ERAS (the NRMP program code is 1587440C1). Qualified applicants will be selected for interviews.

This program, located in Osceola County within the greater Orlando region, is part of the University of Central Florida (UCF) Hospital Corporation of America.  Osceola Regional Medical Center is a 400-bed level II trauma hospital and the sole provider of a growing list of specialty and subspecialty services within Osceola County.

The Orlando VAMC, a new state-of-the-art facility with multispecialty and surgery services across from UCF in the Lake Nona region of Orlando, will be a major participating site for residents. The VAMC shares a campus with the national SimLEARN simulation facility.

Pediatric surgery rotations will occur at Nemours Children’s Hospital-Orlando. The surgery residency program is the 19th accredited UCF/HCA consortium program and residents will work alongside residents and fellows in multiple other ACGME programs including Internal medicine, emergency medicine, obstetrics & gynecology, neurology and transitional medicine.

In addition to applying through ERAS, please contact Ana Acevedo, Dr. Kondylis or refer to the UCF/HCA Greater Orlando GME programs.
