Welcome to Ocala Family Medicine Residency! Established in 2016 as an osteopathic program we have evolved to provide the highest training to both DO and MDs. Graduates from our program go on to practice in single and group practices, academics, and hospitalist medicine in both rural and urban settings. We strive to embrace our diverse residents and faculty providing everyone the opportunity to train and grow through comprehensive experiences. Equipping them with the confidence and scholarly intrigue needed to provide

superior, holistic, and evidence-based care to patients through the journey of life among different social determinants of health in various medical settings.

Our community-based residency program incorporates a community hospital brimming with local specialists while drawing on the resources of the University of Central Florida to bring to bear the academic environment necessary for success. Our Primary care clinic through Heart of Florida is one of 7 local clinics providing full spectrum primary care services. The residency clinic is strategically located to provide services to a variety of patient populations focusing care on the under-served. Each resident is trained in analytics and population health to help them manage their own patient panel and provide up to date, evidenced based care.

Our curriculum is uniquely designed to provide a wide breadth of core family medicine topics as well as hands on simulation training and continued training in OMT for those who desire it. We also, have the opportunity to teach Medical students from UCF during their Family Medicine rotation and Sub-I’s.

Our legacy is to develop graduates who are compassionate, competent, community-oriented healers trained to deliver technologically advanced healthcare while giving back to the profession and their community long after they have graduated.

We are excited that you have considered us for your residency training in Family Medicine.
