Welcome from our Program Director

Thank you for your interest in our program! The Orange Park Medical Center (OPMC) GME Psychiatry Program launched in 2017, as an ACGME accredited four-year program with 16 positions. Our program is motivated to create a diverse and culturally sensitive training environment.

Mission Statement

The Orange Park Medical Center Psychiatry Residency Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.

Program Overview

The Orange Park Medical Center Psychiatry Program is a four-year program designed to provide remarkably diverse clinical exposure, including patients from rural, small town, suburban, and urban core city environments.

Orange Park Medical Center also serves veterans as well as some active duty military due to its proximity to the NAS JAX airbase as well as regional patients from Georgia and the Carolinas.

The range of psychiatric disorders seen is equally diverse: first-episode psychoses, schizophrenia, affective disorders (especially mania and depressive disorders), OCD (Obsessive-compulsive disorder), PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder), and comorbid alcohol and substance use disorders predominate in a gender-balanced, economically and ethnically varied population aged 18 to 100+.

Multiple private and public settings in the Jacksonville area serve as inpatient and outpatient rotation sites, including geriatric psychiatry, forensics, community, addictions, and child psychiatry.

Conference Schedule

Didactics are designed to meet the needs of residents interested in providing evidence-based care that is personalized for the patient, and informed by the biopsychosocial model, using combined treatment modalities including psychotherapy, psychotropic medications, and social interventions.

Required research projects and presentations round out the educational experience with residents encouraged to present at both internal research day activities as well as regional and state-wide psychiatric meetings, the American Psychiatric Association or national specialty meetings as dictated by the needs and interests of the resident.

Institutional review board or quality committee submissions and publications are closely mentored. Individual and group supervision is provided by multiple members of our diverse and talented faculty.
