Family Medicine Residency Program Fort Myers, FL

A Message from the Program Director

On behalf of the entire staff at the Florida State University College of Medicine Family Medicine Residency Program at Lee Health (Fort Myers), I want to thank you for your interest in our program.

I am honored to serve as the Program Director alongside our outstanding faculty who are dedicated to our residents and patients. We are blessed with enormous resources of the Florida State University College of Medicine and Lee Health -- a supportive teaching hospital and medical staff; an energetic, diverse and dedicated faculty; Epic, a mature electronic medical record system available for both inpatient and outpatient services including computer physician order management; a state-of-the-art Family Medicine Center and a large number of receptive and challenging patients.

Our family medicine clinic is a National Health Services Corps (NHSC) approved site.  This recognizes the work we do as a primary health care site providing comprehensive services, and, among other benefits, allows our physicians to qualify for a generous federal student loan repayment program.  

We hope you want to learn more about our exciting residency program and Global Health Fellowship in beautiful Fort Myers! I am happy to correspond with you directly to answer any questions. You may reach us at (239) 343-2371 and you may also e-mail our Administrative Secretary, Stefanie Paulson at

Kindest regards,

Alfred C. Gitu, M.D., FAAFP
