What is a Physician Resident?
Residents are doctors who completed medical school and are continuing specialty training in the FSU College of Medicine Internal Medicine Residency Program at SMH. During their three years of training, our resident physicians rotate through all of the disciplines in general Internal Medicine under the supervision of our top-notch physicians and medical educators, and also participate in the care of patients in the hospital, nursing homes and community physician offices.
Each resident is assigned an attending faculty physician who supervises and guides the decisions and care provided to all patients. Our attending physicians are board-certified Internal Medicine specialists and experienced members of Sarasota Memorial’s medical staff.
