University of Florida – Family Medicine Residency Program

We are proud to be part of an innovative pilot program since 2018 to improve the ambulatory learning environment for family medicine residents! Clinic is where the majority of family medicine graduates practice, so it should be a priority of all residency programs. Our intern curriculum is primarily composed of 1 month rotations with clinic scattered throughout the week. Our PGY 2 and 3 schedules are on a 2+2 mini-block calendar. This means residents spend 2 weeks in the family medicine center and then 2 weeks on their other rotations (ED, inpatient, MICU, ortho, elective, etc). Then they are back in clinic for 2 weeks and it goes back and forth like this for the year. This prevents residents from having to be at multiple sites in one day and also provides a more predictable schedule. Our goals are to see a significant increase in patient and physician continuity as well as a better work-life balance for residents.
