Medical school interviews have gone virtual this year as the UCF College of Medicine supports public-health efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Rather than in-person interview, about 450 applicants will participate in two Zoom-based interviews and then are invited to a virtual visit. That visit includes Zoom discussions, panels and video messages so potential students get a comprehensive experience to engage with medical school students, faculty and leaders. The visit includes a virtual tour of the Medical Education Building, multiple interactions with medical students and live chats with Dr. Deborah German, vice president for health affairs and founding dean, and Dr. Marcy Verduin, associate dean for students. Applicants also get a virtual overview of the curriculum, facilities, financial aid, counseling and wellness and other student support services.

The 2020-21 Viewbook is also emailed to all applicants.

“This admission cycle we have the unique opportunity to revamp our admissions process and move everything to a virtual platform,” said Admissions Director Laurel Poole. “We are excited to showcase all our young and innovative medical school has to offer and bring to life over Zoom the developing Medical City that surrounds us.”
