Jacob Wright, MD
Medical School: UCF College of Medicine
Academic Interests: EMS, global health, ultrasound
Why ORMC: Having been close by during medical school, I was blessed to not only have the opportunity to rotate at ORMC, but be mentored during medical school by some of the amazing faculty that make up ORMC EM. This program set the standard with brilliant, supportive leadership and the most competent residents I had seen, managing a vast, diverse population of sick patients. Maybe most importantly, the residents of ORMC EM were easily the happiest, most tight-knit group that I got to meet on the interview trail. I knew that at Orlando Health I would have every opportunity to develop into a great physician around a stellar group of people.
Hobbies & Interests: I love any and all outdoor activities but most notably fishing, snowboarding, surfing, and hiking. I also work out a lot and dabble in recreational sports. When I have time I play acoustic guitar, travel, and explore good food and drink near and far!
Favorite on shift snack / beverage: Black coffee and baby carrots
