The CentraState Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program welcomes a new class of six residents each year. We foster a comfortable environment in which residents can both learn and socialize with ease. The program hosts annual resident retreats as well as weekly lecture seminars. This offers residents the luxury of taking time out of their busy schedules to relax with their peers and discuss important issues. Many residents also elect to meet on their own time to enjoy dining, sporting events, and other social experiences.
