Mark Bender, MD

Medical School: University of South Florida College of Medicine

Academic Interests: acute care pain management, musculoskeletal ultrasound and nerve blocks, sports medicine

Why ORMC: I went all over the country looking for places and this Orlando was far and way the best place I visited. Orlando Health is one of the few programs that has all the main things I was looking for in a residency; it cultivates a family atmosphere with strong clinical training and a great social scene.

Hobbies: I love being active with surfing, scuba diving, and snow and water skiing.

Favorite on shift snack/beverage: Winnie cafeteria cookies
