Faculty Testimonials

Assistant Professor; Critical Care Medicine Division

Amanda Frantz, MD

"After deciding to pursue medicine as an undergraduate, UF offered support and opportunities that helped me find my way. When applying for an adult Critical Care Medicine training position, I immediately knew after my interview that I was coming back to UF for my fellowship. The familial work environment and world-renowned Critical Care Medicine Division were the driving forces in my return to Gainesville. Academic medicine keeps me on my toes. The students and residents are eager to learn and excited to provide patient care. Being surrounded by forward-thinking people who want to change medicine for the better makes UF stand out among other academic programs. My coworkers motivate me to be a better physician. Gainesville has grown in the past decade. After living in larger cities, I enjoy Gainesville’s cost of living, tolerable traffic, and outdoor activities."

Associate Professor; Chief, Critical Care Medicine Division

Sean Kiley, MD

"I transferred to UF after my first year of college for their Physician Assistant program. After working in the hospital as a young adult, I was inspired to go to medical school. I considered going other places for residency, but when I looked at the overall package, there was no place better than UF in my mind. At UF, you have the opportunity to help educate future healthcare providers, which is really gratifying because you feel like you’re making a difference in people’s lives. There are so many aspects to directing the future of critical care within our institution, which keeps me engaged. I’ve been in Gainesville for 26 years now. It’s a great place to raise kids; I have two boys who are products of a great public school system. We have Gator sports and phenomenal weather, as well as easy access to many nearby attractions."

Associate Professor; director, cardiothoracic anesthesia fellowship

Edward McGough, MD

"I was a resident in our department in the 1980s as well as a Critical Care Medicine fellow, and then I left academics to work in private practice. When the time came to change jobs, UF allowed me to create a job with ample flexibility that catered to my interests in cardiovascular anesthesia. I found a niche doing critical care in a cardiac-only ICU, which is unique, as well as cardiac anesthesia with fellows. Teaching and interacting with the residents and fellows is a lot of fun; they bring so much energy and keep everything interesting and enjoyable. The breadth of what goes on at UF makes it unique. In one location, we have pediatrics, adults, and a VA. We have a huge diversity of care that is hard to find somewhere else. You can find a niche because we have so many different choices. Being in a university town allows you to access diversity; UF brings together a broad array of people with a depth of interests that you wouldn’t necessarily find in private practice."

Assistant Professor; Director, Undersea & Hyperbaric Medicine Clinic

Derek Covington, MD

"I came to UF because I wanted a high-powered academic medical center with high-acuity cases, great physicians, and excellent resources for patients, research, and education. I especially like the variety of my clinical assignments. The chance to work in the several locations and in different areas of medicine — including pediatrics, vascular, orthopedics, preoperative, and even undersea medicine — allows me to interact with a lot of different people and keeps me interested. I just don’t know what other place would allow me such flexibility and such a refreshing variety. I also wanted a town that was livable, not overwhelming in terms of traffic, population, or housing. Gainesville has fit the bill. There’s excellent food, entertainment, and athletics. And as an avid cave diver, the world-renowned springs around here were certainly a draw. It’s quite a sweet spot here in north central Florida!"
