Affiliated and volunteer faculty are vital to the development and delivery of the College of Medicine curriculum. Affiliated faculty members are professionals employed by an entity that has an affiliation agreement with the College of Medicine. These individuals are directed by the affiliated employer to perform specific responsibilities and to devote a specified percent of time and effort to the College of Medicine. Affiliated and volunteer faculty members of the College of Medicine serve without financial compensation by UCF. They are encouraged to actively participate in the educational, research, academic service, and/or patient care programs of the College of Medicine.



We continue to recruit affiliated and volunteer faculty to participate in key aspects of the curriculum as we work toward our goal of educating exemplary physicians, leaders in medicine, scholars in science, innovators in medical technology, and compassionate providers of healthcare for the well-being of our community. There are several opportunities for affiliated and volunteer faculty to interact with the College of Medicine.
