The program provides sequential & gradually increasing ambulatory care responsibility as well as realistic experiences of family physicians. For this reason, our program increases the time allotted to ambulatory care & community medicine during the three year program. We have a strong clinical orientation with a wealth of clinical material in the community & hospital. The learning opportunities in the program are structured to provide appropriate training for residents whether their future plans include solo, group or managed care practices, regardless of community size. The residency program is affiliated with the Department of Family Medicine of the University of South Florida College of Medicine and Florida State University College of Medicine.
