Welcoming our 2024 residents

As the new academic year begins in earnest, we’re thrilled to welcome our incoming cohort of residents!

Each year, our department conducts hundreds of interviews to ensure our incoming residents are among the most remarkable in the nation. We’re more than confident we’ve succeeded; the 25 physicians joining us this summer represent an extraordinary breadth of experience and talent. We’re also excited to welcome six graduates of the University of Florida College of Medicine to our ranks.

Please join the faculty and staff of the University of Florida Department of Anesthesiology in extending the warmest of welcomes. We know you’ll make excellent additions to our program, to our community, and to the Gator Nation. We’re honored to host such an accomplished group of residents and can’t wait to see what you accomplish!
