Program overview

Our HCA Florida Trinity Hospital medical staff, administration and employees invite you to discover more about our Graduate Medical Education program and the caliber of care and support we provide to our community and our colleagues.

The Internal Medicine Residency Program began in July 2019 and received continued accredited with no citations by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in 2021. We are affiliated with the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine.

We offer a community-based academic learning environment with the mission to educate and train exceptional physicians in the discipline of medicine. Our philosophy and curriculum incorporates a team approach to patient care and encourages progressive levels of independent decision-making in order to prepare residents for fellowship training and medical practice.

Our collaborative relationship with physician practices and hospital clinical services ensures an ideal learning environment for professional practice and medical education. It is our feeling that an Internal Medicine Physician is best served by being capable of functioning in the hospital environment, with a strong primary care base during the course of training.

Curriculum and rotation schedule

Our expertly crafted programs are designed to provide resident and fellow physicians with all the experiences and training necessary for professional success.
