Mission Statement

The HCA Florida Largo Hospital Transitional Year Internship 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.

Program Overview

HCA Florida Largo Hospital’s Transitional Year Residency program is committed to providing an engaging educational opportunity, offering exposure to a wide array of clinical and research opportunities in many fields of medicine and surgery. We pride ourselves in offering a strong balance of didactic experiences through case reports, lectures, journal clubs, board review sessions and specialty lectures.

Our program offers an emphasis on bedside teaching and mastery of clinical skills. We understand the importance of building a solid knowledge base and clinical foundation to help propel residents into competitive categorical, advanced specialty programs and research opportunities.

Our curriculum has been designed to equip the resident with a broad clinical base yet preserve much needed flexibility in meeting individual career goals. Diversity of patients, clinical sites and clinical exposure are hallmarks of our training program.

Our attending physicians are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards in their respective specialty fields while promoting the most up-to-date evidence-based practices. They actively promote protected resident didactic and lecture time to ensure sound, uninterrupted learning.

One of the aims of our teaching staff is to ensure that residents are active members of the patient care team and have the opportunity to dynamically participate in patient care in order to achieve the competencies of their scope of practice.

Our resident physicians acknowledge that they are a crucial part of the patient care team and that they uphold their obligation to place patient care above all things. Residents adhere to the highest standards of our profession and provide ethical and quality healthcare. Our program promotes an atmosphere in which the resident feels comfortable coming to the attending physicians with questions.

They have support from all members of the patient care team. This teamwork model provides the residents with a valuable year of experience.

Program details


All the residency programs at HCA Florida Largo Hospital use a web-based, residency management system called MedHub to process evaluations, update vital information and submit time sheets. Additionally, you will upload your lectures to MedHub prior to giving your presentations.


Both Resident Evaluations of Service and Attending Evaluations of Residents will be completed on MedHub. These must be completed and signed by all required parties and should be submitted within two weeks of the end of each block.

Only one attending for each service needs to fill out an Evaluation of a Resident (this should be performed by the attending with whom you spend the most time).

MINI-CEX Evaluations

Residents are responsible for obtaining at least one mini-clinical evaluation exercise every rotation. This should be completed and turned in to the program coordinator. The form can be found on MedHub or in the GME office.

This will be a resident responsibility to have completed this by end of the rotation. This is a way for residents to receive additional feedback regarding their performance on rotations.

Procedure Logs

Resident Procedure logs must also be kept up to date. These should be completed on MedHub after each procedure performed with proper documentation of attending and senior supervisor. This will make you “signed off” to allow you to perform the given procedure independently and teach other interns.


ACGME has implemented milestones as a framework for determining resident performance within the six ACGME Core Competencies. Essentially, they are competency-based developmental outcomes. Further information can be obtained at the ACGME website.
