Sacred Heart Hospital of Pensacola

The Studer Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart has a pediatric residency program sponsored by the University of Florida School of Medicine. Our residents spend four weeks (five days per week) working on their inpatient pediatric team. They average carrying 5-7 patients per day and have supervision via the UF inpatient pediatric hospitalist residency faculty. Our residents become certified in PALS prior to this rotation. Additionally, our residents spend ten days each in the newborn nursery where their primary goal is to learn how to perform basic newborn assessments and care, neonatal resuscitation and stabilization, and recognition of the ill newborn. During this time our residents have no overnight call or night float responsibilities.

Eastern Shore Rehabilitation and Health Center

Our residents rotate through Eastern Shore Rehabilitation and Health Center as part of their longitudinal long-term care requirement. Residents are scheduled to start this at or prior to the beginning of their PGY2 year and continue through residency graduation. They receive an orientation to the facility from the Chief Nursing Officer prior to starting the rotation and then work directly with Dr. Hall, the facility’s Medical Director, on days that they are scheduled for this experience. Residents are involved in caring for both nursing home patients as well as those in shorter-term rehabilitation with a priority of caring for patients who are also admitted from our FMP and/or primary practice site. Our residents rotate through this experience on an average of one day every other month.
