Steven Nazario, MD

Welcome From The Program Director

As a founding member of this residency program, it is a source of pride to have helped train and guide residents and to see our program serve a community-based hospital which now serves a yearly census of 85,000 patients.

Guiding younger professionals through the later stages of their educational journey is both exciting and rewarding. Our faculty is focused on assisting residents and medical students make those transitions which will make them successful independent practitioners of emergency medicine. I have always appreciated the ethic of workers who tirelessly roll up their sleeves and get the job done. I believe that you learn best by doing, by taking care of patients and their problems. Bedside teaching is an essential part of the equation here with dedicated didactic time meant to augment some of the more granular elements. Our curriculum model continues to evolve as we incorporate more problem-based learning, simulation cases and procedure labs to our conference time.

Research

As one of the key components in ACGME program requirements, research activity is an essential part of training. In the era of evidence-based medicine, we strongly believe at AdventHealth Orlando that residents should develop critical thinking skills to evaluate the publications and apply new knowledge in their clinical practice. Our program has a well-developed infrastructure and fostering culture to support residents who are interested in pursuing basic research, clinical research, or quality improvement/patient safety projects. By promoting research and scholarly activities, our ultimate goal is to train the next generation of physicians with strengths in both clinical and academic medicine.

Bedside Ultrasound Fellowship

The Beside Ultrasound Fellowship is a 1-year fellowship based AdventHealth East Orlando, a community-based urban program with a wide breadth of pathology and high acuity.  During the year, the fellows gain a mastery of Ultrasonography principles and techniques for image acquisition and clinical implementation through dedicated scan shifts with faculty and weekly quality assurance (QA).  This includes exposure to advanced topics such as advanced echocardiography, transesophageal echography, and regional anesthesia.  In addition, the fellows hone their ability to educate through regular didactics for medical students, residents, and allied health professionals.  Finally, fellows learn how to run a program including billing and credentialing, quality assurance, hardware purchasing and maintenance.  With this specialized training, fellows are well positioned to obtain a position in ultrasound leadership in academic, community, or hybrid practice.
