Welcome from our team

Our program offers a personalized, learner-focused program with a strong emphasis on educational excellence. The program has all the opportunities of larger programs but there is greater potential to develop a closer teaching relationship with our faculty who are committed to your personal and professional development.

Mission Statement

The HCA Florida Orange Park Hospital General Surgery 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 resident's clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values and ideals.

Program Overview

The General Surgery Residency Program at Orange Park Medical Center is ACGME approved for three categorical general surgery residents per year. We started our first class of PGY1 residents off-cycle in November of 2019. We are looking for enthusiastic learners who can help shape not only the residency program but the future of general surgery!

More specifically, we will provide a learner-centered, competency-based, supportive environment where residents develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required for high-quality, independent surgical practice. We will teach and model the delivery of high-quality, patient-focused healthcare as part of a team that involves a variety of healthcare professionals.

Our program is committed to the care and improvement of human life. Our goal is to provide compassionate care and exceptional service to every patient, every day.
