Successful candidates will hold UF appointments and become part of our current group of 33 full-time faculty, five fellows, 24 residents and more than 200 staff members that make up the UF College of Medicine Department of Emergency Medicine and the UF Health Emergency Department in Gainesville.
UF Health Shands Hospital is an 872-bed teaching hospital with a Level 1 Trauma Center and Burn Center, and is the major referral center for North Central Florida. Approximately 1,500 UF faculty and community physicians and more than 8,000 skilled Shands nursing and support staff provide comprehensive, high-quality patient care, ranging from primary care and family medicine to tertiary and quaternary services for patients with highly complex medical conditions in more than 100 specialty and subspecialty medical areas. The UF Health Science Center is the country’s only academic health center with six health-related colleges, six major research institutes and versatile research facilities located on a single, contiguous campus. The UF Health Science Center, including our major research centers, institutes and clinical enterprise, receives more than $300 million in NIH and other extramural funding and focuses on building collaborative statewide education, health delivery systems and specialized clinical services centered on quality and innovation.
The Department of Emergency Medicine’s faculty currently provides clinical services in three facilities: a 61-bed ED and trauma/critical care center (opened in November 2009); a separate, dedicated 20-bed Pediatric Emergency Department (opened July 2011); and a free-standing emergency department located in northwest Gainesville (opened August 2013).
Our three-year emergency medicine residency program supports 24 residents. Our teaching faculty, fellows and residents are significantly integrated in the college’s undergraduate medical education mission and hold key leadership positions within UF Health Shands Hospital and the UF College of Medicine. The Department of Emergency Medicine also features a growing research environment, which has been significantly enhanced through collaborative opportunities throughout the College of Medicine and institutes on the UF campus. The Department holds multiple contracts for regional EMS direction and also provides medical direction for ShandsCair, UF Health’s hospital- operated ground-based, helicopter and fixed-wing medical transport program.
