Emergency Medicine Residency

Program Directors' Welcome

Welcome to the Orlando Regional Medical Center (ORMC)Emergency Medicine Residency. We are a well-established three year program since 1986 and enjoy continuous clinical and academic growth. The heart and soul of ORMC's program are the wonderful residents who comprise it. An impressive diverse patient mix, superb bedside teaching, outstanding clinical and academic training embedded in a supportive culture are the signatures of the residency experience here. Happy residents, a family atmosphere, camaraderie and a wonderful place to live provide the platform for resident life in our program. 

On February 26, 2017 our program experienced the sudden and unexpected death of our beloved program director, Dr. Sal Silvestri. It is our honor and privilege to help carry on the legacy that he so carefully crafted in his 12 years as Program Director for the Orlando Health Emergency Medicine Residency. We would like to welcome you to the extended family of emergency medicine physicians that have been a vital part of our program.
