The Emergency Medicine Residency Program is a three-year program for post-graduate doctors. This is the first class of the Graduate Medical Education program in Emergency Medicine. The Emergency Medicine program has been authorized for 18 residents starting with six residents in the first year of the three-year program. The program director is Alfredo Tirado, MD.
According to the Florida Department of Health, there is a critical statewide need for physicians. The expansion of the Graduate Medical Education programs at Oak Hill Hospital will 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.
"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.
