Welcome from our Program Director
Thank you for your interest in our program! The Anesthesiology Residency Program is committed to training physicians in the science and practice of anesthesia and perioperative medicine.
The Ocala Regional Medical Center Anesthesiology 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.
The UCF COM/HCA Healthcare GME Consortium Anesthesiology Residency program at Ocala Regional Medical Center is an ACGME accredited program and closely follows the standards set forth by the ACGME and the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA). The three years of our program (CA1, CA2, CA3) are intended for physicians who have successfully completed a clinical base training PGY1 year.
Our program's primary aim is to assist our residents in becoming accomplished professional clinicians and consultants in anesthesiology who meet the requirements to become board-certified by the ABA and who are proficient to practice in anesthesiology in either academic or private practice settings.
This aim will be achieved through both formal teachings via lectures, conferences, simulation and small groups as well as daily clinical teaching and experience.
Although the focus of the clinical anesthesia years is predominantly clinical anesthesia training, we encourage interest and participation in ongoing hospital and university-based research and quality improvement initiatives.
Get to Know the Team
Ettore Crimi, MD
Our residents are valued members of an interdisciplinary team delivering anesthesia care to patients across all sites and are appreciated for their efforts. As such, UCF COM/HCA Healthcare GME Consortium encourages and strives to foster collegiality, encourage discussion, presentation of ideas, and involvement in quality improvement and patient safety hospital initiatives. The anesthesiology program provides residents with supervised training to progress to more complex and demanding cases with increasing independence in decision-making and performance.
Experience in such a wide variety of patient and case complexities is met by incorporating rotations across multiple sites including West Marion Community Hospital, a more rural, acute hospital within the Ocala Health Systems, Osceola Regional Medical Center with a high-volume obstetric anesthesiology service, and Nemours Children's Hospital of Orlando which will provide a robust pediatric anesthesia experience for our learners.
Centers of excellence are the new paradigm for care and the multisite approach training will provide our residents with an exceptional educational and mentorship experience. Collectively, our sites feature a Level II Trauma Center, a pediatric hospital, two women’s centers, two cardiothoracic centers, and three different ICUs (trauma, surgical and cardiac).
Our sites will provide training and education in every area such as trauma, minimally invasive cardiac surgery, thoracic surgery, robotic surgery, bariatric surgery, neuroanesthesia, regional anesthesia, perioperative ultrasound, critical care and pain management.
Among our faculty are anesthesiologists trained at top-notch academic institutions with a variety of expertise, fellowship training, and research interests.
