    Does anybody know anything about Orlando's newest EM program? Apparently, it's at Florida Hospital (that's what I heard, could be wrong. They are apparently expecting to have a new residency accredited sometime in 2007...

    I live here in Orlando and I heard they were trying to get an MD program going, but last I heard it wasnt going to happen because they wanted to use ORMC for Truama Rotations and Ormc having its own program said no, but I could be wrong.

    Florida Hospital is a DO residency hospital associated with NOVA med school. Suprising that they would do a MD program. Interesting all the same. You would think that someone would fire up a MD program in Miami before another in Orlando but I am just a youngster in the game.

    Yes the DO program is with Nova and at Florida Hospital East campus. There was talk of a program at the main campus downtown....I am not sure of the outcome though...

    Yeah, well, we'll see...

    Our head honchos have said they aren't going to be using our trauma center for their trauma experience - between EM and GS, we have plenty of bodies in the bays. Besides, we're looking to expand too. (Or course, Orlando's penetrating trauma has increased dramatically in the last couple of years, but still...)

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    They Adventist/Fl. EM. Phys were approved for an MD program(ABEM). They were told it had to be at Fl. South, not East like originally requested. Don't know how many residents they will take. Trauma will be at Halifax.

    Rumor is they are filling their faculty ranks with a bunch of ORMC-EM grads, esp this years class.


    Any other word?

    From what I've seen on the website and thru emramatch.org, ORMC doesn't seem to have any DO's. Have any DO's interviewed there, or is their program generally regarded as DO-unfriendly? Thanks.

    The University of Central Florida is forming a new allopathic medical school in the near future. Perhaps Orlando does have an M.D. program on the way?

    Traditionally, VERY un-DO-friendly. Not only their EM program, but also the rest of the hospital. This may have changed in recent years, but when I applied, they would reject you within hours of getting your application (which, by the way, no other program ever did).
