The University of Central Florida College of Medicine’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of all.

And community engagement is a key component of reaching that goal. We offer students and faculty diverse opportunities to learn as they serve others – from our community’s uninsured to residents of underserved villages in South America.


Community of Practice (COP Program)

UCF Lake Nona Medical Center, a partnership hospital between UCF and HCA North Florida Division, will transform Central Florida’s healthcare community on a journey toward an academic medical approach.

We are reaching out to community healthcare providers and residents who wish to learn more about our new state-of-the-art emerging hospital adjacent to the UCF College of Medicine in Lake Nona.
