Rotations

Our curriculum is individualized for each resident, allowing each resident to take his or her own path and get to the same ending point. One of the strengths of our curriculum is the diverse opportunities for subspecialty rotations both locally and at our affiliate sites, Arnold Palmer in Orlando and Sacred Heart in Pensacola with housing provided. On average, residents have three to four subspecialty experiences per year.
