Burnett School Summer Enrollment Soaring
ORLANDO, June 25, 2010 — Enrollment in this year’s summer classes at the College of Medicine’s Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences has increased over 10 percent from last year.
During Session A, which ends today, 821 undergraduate students enrolled in courses including Human Anatomy, Epidemiology of Infectious Disease and Microbiology for Health Professions.
For Session B, with enrollment ongoing, another 372 students are signed up for courses such as Human Physiology, including labs, Molecular Biology II, Clinical Embryology and Cancer Biology that run from June 28 to August 6. Another 335 students are currently taking General Microbiology during Session C, which runs from May 17 to August 6.
During all three terms, the Burnett school also has students enrolled in undergraduate research, internships, practicum and clinical experiences and independent studies. Graduate students are also enrolled in thesis and dissertation preparation.
"This is an exciting time for biomedical sciences at the UCF College of Medicine," said Dr. Roseann White, associate director of academic affairs at the Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences. "Molecular Biology and Microbiology is now UCF’s second most popular major. Our courses are in high demand so we offer a large number of summer classes."
