New Psychiatry Residency Program Will Help With Shortage In Central Florida
A new psychiatry residency program will help offset rising demand for mental health providers throughout Florida. The University of Central Florida says it will eventually train more than 600 providers a year.
UCF says there were more than 17-hundred applicants for six spots in the program that will train residents at Osceola Regional Medical Center and Orlando VA Medical Center.
A Teaching Hospital Council of Florida and Safety Net Hospital Alliance of Florida report that the Orlando area will be short more than 230 psychiatrists by 2025.
