Resident Profile – Rica Jester, MD

Rica Jester, MD and Family

Hi! My name is Rica Jester. I was born in Orlando, Florida. I am a first generation Filipina American. In the future, I plan on staying in Florida and practicing Family Medicine in a primary care clinic setting. I truly enjoy getting to know people and providing patients with continuity of care. Hopefully, I will be able to grow old with my patients. I went to University of Florida and completed my bachelor’s degree in microbiology (Go Gators!). I was in the first graduating class of the Charles E. Schmidt Florida Atlantic University College of Medicine in Boca Raton. I am excited to be back in Gainesville and complete my residency training alongside my husband, who is an internal medicine resident. I enjoy traveling, zumba, and spending time with family and friends.
