Welcome Florida State University College of Medicine Sarasota campus class of 2017! This incoming class of 3rd-year medical students recently started their first rotations with Sarasota Memorial board-certified physicians in multiple specialties. After two years at the Sarasota campus, each student chooses their desired specialty and is eventually matched with a residency program.  We're also proud to celebrate the 10th anniversary of FSU medical students on the SMH campus!

Kids are out of school, families are enjoying summer vacations and everyone has a little more time for outdoor activities like swimming, sunbathing and backyard barbecues. But the very things that make summer so relaxing also make it a prime time of year for certain – and sometimes – life-threatening injuries.  Sarasota Memorial and All Children’s Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine’s highly specialized hospitalist team reminds parents to be aware of pool & water safety, riptides & stingrays, dehydration & heat illness, playground & sports injuries, bug bites, burns and poisonous plants.

When Ray Miller was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, he and his wife Jill feared the worst. His doctor referred him to Sarasota Memorial Gastrointestinal Oncologist Kenneth Meredith, MD, who has performed more robotic esophagectomies than anyone else in the world. At Sarasota Memorial, Dr. Meredith and the hospital's highly skilled robotic team performed a robotic-assisted esophagectomy. Not only did it remove Ray's cancer, it also resulted in a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery.

Applications could start arriving as early as 2016 with admission of the first residents in 2017.

A recent study published in the journal "Heart," looked at the effect of diet on long-term health. It involved 25,000 volunteers and found that the answer to how much chocolate can be good for you is -- a lot. Study participants in the high consumption group -- those who ate 15 to 100 grams of chocolate a day in the form of everything from Mars bars to hot cocoa -- had lower heart disease and stroke risk than those who did not consume the confection. While the study provides evidence that there's no need to avoid chocolate in your diet to protect your cardiovascular health, it probably is too soon to run out and gorge on a pile of chocolate bars.
