Incoming Residents & Fellows


Welcome to University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine (MCOM) GME training programs! With approximately 80 residency and fellowship programs under the sponsorship of our office, USF MCOM is proud to sponsor a range of specialty and advanced sub-specialty training programs that cover the breadth of modern medicine.

As our Mission Statement attests, GME endeavors to provide an ideal environment for the acquisition of the knowledge, skill, and attitudes necessary for its graduates to achieve the highest levels of professional and personal accomplishment, and to safeguard the public trust. In doing so, we support a balanced educational program comprised of individual programs united under a common institutional goal and with shared participation in an interdisciplinary curriculum.

GME has prepared the House Officer Handbook to help you familiarize yourself with the benefits provided to you as a USF GME trainee. The Handbook also provides you with a comprehensive summary of policies, procedures and services available to you.

You will complete much of the onboarding process through a checklist in New Innovations. The checklist contains multiple steps with each step containing specific instructions for completion. You will also be receiving e-mails from the GME Staff on how to set up your USF e-mail, LEARN modules, and other important information as the on-boarding process continues – please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

Again, welcome to the USF Morsani College of Medicine. We look forward to guiding you through your training program!
