HCA-UCF add residency, fellowship programs

HCA Healthcare and the University of Central Florida are establishing an internal medicine residency program at HCA Florida Ft. Walton-Destin Hospital and adding a gastroenterology fellowship with Orlando VA Medical Center and HCA Florida Osceola Hospital in Kissimmee. 

Both programs have received ACGME accreditation and are seeking applicants to begin training in July. 

The additions increased the number of accredited programs in the UCF-HCA Florida Healthcare Graduate Medical Education Consortium to 37, making it one of the fastest growing in the state. By July, the consortium will have 600 physicians training in specialties that include primary care, surgery, OB-GYN, psychiatry, endocrinology, emergency medicine and geriatrics.

The internal medicine residency will accept 12 physicians a year for its three-year program and will participate in this year's National Match Day March 15. The GI fellowship will accept two physicians a year who have completed their internal medicine residency training for its three-year program — for a total of six at full complement.

Amanda Finley, DO, will lead the internal medicine residency and Vinay Katukuri, MD, will lead the GI fellowship.
