About the UCF College of Medicine

Established in 2006, the UCF College of Medicine is one of the first U.S. medical schools in decades to be built from the ground up. As a new medical school, UCF’s program epitomizes innovation, high-tech learning tools and a pioneering spirit to educate young doctors and scientists in a new and better way for the 21st century.

In 2014, the M.D. program enrolled its sixth class, and its second at full enrollment of 120 students. That means enrollment has increased 10-fold in just five years. By the 2016-2017 school year, the college will be educating 480 physicians-in-training a year. The College of Medicine’s Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences is training almost 3,000 undergraduate majors in the biomedical sciences: Biotechnology, Medical Laboratory Sciences, and Molecular Biology and Microbiology. The school also offers master’s degrees in Molecular Biology and Microbiology and Biotechnology as well as doctoral degree in Biomedical Science. In fall 2015, the college will begin offering an M.D.-Ph.D. degree.

The UCF College of Medicine is a forward-looking medical school with a culture based on partnerships and collaboration. The college’s medical and biomedical programs capitalize on UCF’s existing strengths in biological sciences, modeling and simulation, engineering, optics and photonics, psychology, chemistry, film and digital media, business, and nursing.

The college is an integral part of the growing medical city at Lake Nona. The UCF Health Sciences Campus at Lake Nona now includes the medical school’s new 170,000-square-foot medical education facility, featuring the latest in lab and classroom technology, as well as its new 198,000-square-foot Burnett Biomedical Sciences building.
