Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

The program's mission is to train and develop physiatrists who will be experts in value-based evaluation, diagnosis, and management of neuromusculoskeletal and disabling conditions and serve as leaders in directing rehabilitation and recovery and in preventing injury and disease.



Emergency Medicine

UF EM Residency team’s mission is to expose trainees to the broadest span of presentations, depth of acuity, and healthcare disparities that exist in Emergency Medicine. The residency team serves as guide whose purpose is to train residents in the vanguard practice of EM, bring evidence based critical thinking and interventions to the bedside, and to do so with compassion.

Child Neurology

The program's mission is to expand the frontiers of clinical care, education, and research in the field of pediatric neurology while striving for excellence, creativity, and innovation. The goal is to provide an outstanding educational environment for the next generation of child neurologists.

pediatric neuro



This 7-year program allows trainees to care for patients with brain tumors, neurovascular disorders, complex spine problems, epilepsy, children’s neurological illnesses, movement disorders, and trauma to the brain and spine from our nationally and internationally recognized faculty.


Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation

The program's goal is to promote self-directed, life-long learning skills. In this residency program, emphasis is placed on assisting each resident in gaining basic knowledge, clinical and surgical skills and then help them apply these principles in practice.
