Dr. Edmiston returned to UF in the fall of 2009 after spending twenty five years in private practice here in Gainesville and in Durango, Colorado.  He assumed leadership of the night rotation for residents, emphasizing real-world skills of rapid assessment and optimization of emergency surgical patients.  He enjoys the opportunities afforded at night to get to know the residents and to regale his captive listeners with tales from the his checkered past. When not in the South Tower under the cover of darkness, Dr. Edmiston can be found at his lake cabin in the Ocala National Forest or in Oxford, England.
