Mike Krick, DO
I am a Florida native born in St. Petersburg. I am a Gator alumni where I did my undergraduate work in microbiology. I graduated from Nova Southeastern University, College of Osteopathic Medicine in Ft. Lauderdale, FL in 2007. I did my traditional osteopathic rotating internship in my hometown at Northside Hospital & Tampa Bay Heart Institute affiliated with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2008. After my internship, I decided to leave Florida to broaden my scope of medicine by going north to Pennsylvania for my Emergency Medicine residency at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, PA graduating in 2011. While in residency I had the privilege to be a Flight Physician for the Life Flight helicopter program at Geisinger, flying over 80 air medical missions throughout north-central Pennsylvania. After graduation I worked for my first two years in the community of Ocala, FL. I then had the opportunity to return to Gainesville, a town I have always enjoyed, taking a position as a clinical assistant professor with the University of Florida, Emergency Medicine Center – Springhill, in 2013.
My academic interests include sports medicine related injuries, osteopathic manipulation, and trauma. I have done research in the subject of airway management.
In my free time I enjoy long distance running, cycling, golf, fishing, watching college football, just about any activity I can do outdoors, and most importantly, spending time with my family.
