Oak Hill Hospital Appointed 25 New Residents This Year

The Internal Medicine Residency Program is a three-year program for postgraduate doctors. This is the fifth class of the Graduate Medical Education Program in Internal Medicine. Internal medicine residents train in the hospital on general medicine teams and special services including the medical emergency department.

The Internal Medicine Residency program is under the direction of Salman Muddassir, MD.

According to the Florida Department of Health, there is a critical statewide need for physicians. The expansion of the Graduate Medical Education Program, such as Oak Hill Hospital's can help to alleviate the shortage. This program is expected to benefit the residents of the local community, since many physicians ultimately will practice where they complete their residency training.

"It is gratifying to see our GME Program progressing to this level. We are proud to be able to provide our community with an accredited teaching hospital," said Ed Nast, MD, Chief Medical Officer at Oak Hill Hospital. "The community benefits in so many ways by the additions," he added.
