Kellee Oller, MD FACP

Program Director

Dr. Oller is the Program Director for the Internal Medicine Residency Program at the University of South Florida. A Tampa native, she went to University of South Florida for her biology degree and medical doctorate. She remained at USF for residency training and subsequently as a faculty member for the inpatient ward service at Tampa General Hospital. During her time as faculty and Associate Program Director, Dr. Oller founded the Scholar’s Council - an innovative curriculum that blends online project tracking and mentorship with workshops to enhance scholarly activity skills. She has a passion for learning beyond the classroom: leading resident simulation training for procedures as well as code team leadership, preparing jeopardy-style games to test medical knowledge, and creating concise algorithmic study guides for board review. She has received multiple teaching awards and was recognized by the American College of Physicians as Teacher of the Year in 2017. As Program Director, she has demonstrated a dedication to the program and department, an innovative approach to program development, and continues the resident-centered environment this program promotes.
