The UCF Medical Doctor (MD) program is fully accredited by the Liaison Committee for Medical Education (LCME) that maintains accreditation standards for all U.S. educational programs that culminate in the MD degree.   There are three steps to licensure of medical doctors in the U.S. and the initial two national exams must be taken and successfully passed while in our MD program for both graduation and entry to a medical doctor residency program at some location within the U. S.  The third exam is normally taken approximately one year after graduation from the MD program, while in residency training.  This third exam is used for state licensure as a physician and provides the physician with the sanction to practice as a physician in that state.

At this time the UCF MD curriculum meets the educational eligibility criteria as a medical doctor in all of the states in the U.S. plus Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  Please contact the UCF College of Medicine Registrar at comregistrar@med.ucf with any questions and we will do our best to assist you.
