Residency Family

Our Residency Family

We are a cohesive program with a great team atmosphere among faculty, fellows, residents, interns, students, and all ancillary staff at all hospitals. Interns are placed in small group coaching teams with senior residents and faculty coaches to meet during the first year.


Our program celebrates the diverse backgrounds of our residents and aims to recruit applicants that add to the wealth of experiences and perspectives of our program. This map showcases the medical schools of our current residents across the United States and beyond.

Annually, we proudly interview and accept exceptional International Graduates to add to our programs’ cultural diversity. If you are interested in learning about hospital medicine and the American healthcare system, please visit USF International Trainees to visit our program.

Social Events

Social events throughout the year bring each class together: ropes course, class socials, and Busch Gardens trips are examples of events. Additional events planned throughout the year include the intern welcome party, holiday party, fellowship match day celebration, applicant interview picnic, and graduation party. The Social & Wellness Chairs, comprised of class representatives, assist with these functions plus wellness events throughout the year. Join us for a 5K!

Chief Residents

We have a blended model of Chief Residents, with several PGY-3 and PGY-4 residents.

PGY-3 Chief Residents

We have a total of five PGY-3 Chief Residents assigned to our different training sites. These individuals are recommended by their peers and selected to assist with running the program. They are true leaders, educators, and advocates for the residents and the program.

PGY-4 Chief Residents

There are three PGY-4 Chief Residents for Quality and Patient Safety at the JAHVAH. Two serve as the QI Chief for the inpatient setting. One serves as the chief for the outpatient setting. We also have an Inpatient VA Academics and Research Chief position. There is an opportunity for a QI Chief position at Tampa General Hospital.
