- College of Medicine Students
The UCF College of Medicine‘s 280 M.D. students, along with its faculty physicians, have joined the Orange County Medical Society. The Society, founded in 1908, is one of the 44 medical societies chartered by the Florida Medical Association.
Deborah German, M.D., UCF Vice President for Medical Affairs and Dean of the medical school, said the student and faculty memberships reflect the college’s commitment to the community.
“The Central Florida community initiated the creation of our medical school.” Dr. German said. “The medical school belongs to all of us, and the faculty and students are committed to improving the health of our community. The Orange County Medical Society is one of our vital partners as we work together towards that effort.”
Ravi Jahagirdar, M.D., President of the medical society, called the UCF memberships a highlight of his tenure at the helm of the organization. “I have been involved with the UCF College of Medicine since its inception, and have observed the impact it has had on our community,” Dr. Jahagirdar said. “Membership in our Society helps keep these bright young students and their physician teachers engaged in our community’s health care.”
