Family Medicine Residency Program - BayCare Health System (Winter Haven)
Family Medicine Residency
Welcome to the Florida State University College of Medicine Family Medicine Residency Program at BayCare Health System (Winter Haven) On behalf of the entire team, I want to thank you for your interest in our program.
Our mission is to provide a dynamic, professional learning environment grounded in the concepts of life-long learning, teaching, scholarship, and high-value, high-quality care. We believe this will develop compassionate, patient-centered, well-rounded family physicians who passionately serve their patients and communities.
Located in the beautiful lake country of central Florida, the Winter Haven area is well-known for its beautiful chains of lakes and close-knit community. The area has numerous biking trails, easy access to lakes for boating, fishing, and water skiing, sports facilities, cultural events, colleges, and universities. The best of big city amenities are located a short distance away in both Orlando and Tampa without having to fight the daily traffic. Disney is only 30 miles away and both the Gulf and Atlantic beaches are a short trip away!
I am honored to serve as the Founding Program Director alongside our outstanding faculty who are dedicated to our residents and patients. We are blessed with the incredible resources of two mission-driven organizations aiming to improve the health of Central Florida: the Florida State University College of Medicine and BayCare Health System. This much anticipated program has been the dream of a supportive teaching hospital and medical staff. A new state-of-the-art clinic facility is in development to serve as the residency home and center for care within the community. Our residents and faculty will offer a full-spectrum of care from Sports Medicine and Women’s Health, to Preventive Medicine and Chronic Disease Management.
We hope you want to learn more about our Family Medicine residency program in scenic Winter Haven.
