Further Your Education

The AdventHealth Orlando Graduate Medical Education curriculum goes beyond the basics to advance residents’ and fellows’ grasp of the fundamentals. From conducting research to practicing quality patient care, our program equips you with the necessary skills and scholarly opportunities for a career in medicine.

We are committed to serving the community, the sponsoring institution, the faculty, staff, resident physicians and medical students. The mission of AdventHealth Orlando, and of the residency and fellowship programs, is "To extend the healing ministry of Christ." We do so by preparing compassionate and competent physicians who, we hope, will plan to practice in Central Florida when they complete their training.
