What environments do you train in?

As a resident, the majority of your time is spent at our main campus in downtown Jacksonville, FL. This is a 695-bed academic facility which includes a level 1 trauma center and a Florida Poison Center. The emergency department on this campus is divided in to 5 areas: Resus/Trauma, ECC (higher acuity), Flex (lower acuity), CDU (observation), and pediatrics.

Our residents also rotate through the emergency department at our north campus, 20 minutes north of our main campus. This department has more of a community-feel and allows PGY-3 residents to experience this practice style before graduating.
