UCF’s College of Medicine will be partnering with Osceola Regional Medical Center in Kissimmee to introduce a new residency program in the summer of 2014. ORMC will be training new physicians that have graduated from the medical program for their residency, UCF sponsoring the program.

ORMC is a nationally recognized hospital for their excellence in heart failure and smoking cessation programs, meeting the guidelines given by the American Heart Association. This 317 bed, multi-specialized facility will be the perfect place to house aspiring medical professionals and leaders.  

The medical center will not only be accepting residents from UCF, but qualified candidates from all over the country. UCF and ORMC have a few ties together including UCF’s Associate Dean for Clinical Affairs, Ralph Caruana, was recently appointed to the Osceola Regional’s Board of Trustees.

There will only be 10 spots in the residency program, starting July 2014. As it progresses, that will eventually change to 30 spots. Read more on the affiliation at:
