Study: How Can States Treat a Sick Economy? Call the Doctors
Date:12/19/2008

d John Reed, M.D., president and CEO of the Burnham Institute for Medical Research. "The presence of the UCF medical school was an extremely important factor in our decision to locate our East Coast campus at Lake Nona."

The UCF College of Medicine will welcome its charter class of 40 students on Aug. 3, 2009, and eventually will produce about 120 medical graduates a year. UCF received more than 4,300 applications for the 40 positions in the first class.

UCF is offering a one-of-a-kind scholarship program to its charter class. Each student accepted will receive a $40,000 scholarship for tuition, living expenses and fees for each of the four years of the medical degree program.

The scholarships were completely funded by nearly $7 million in community donations from across the Orlando area. Although UCF is a new medical school, it has already made history - the Association of American Medical Colleges says UCF will be the first medical school ever to provide full scholarships for four years to an entire class.

The four-year medical program will capitalize on UCF's existing strengths in biomedical sciences, modeling and simulation, and optics and photonics. Other programs in materials science, psychology, hospitality, chemistry, film and digital media, and nursing will support the program.

"Our goal is to build this century's best medical school," said Dr. Deborah German, M.D., dean of the UCF College of Medicine. "Together with our faculty, researchers and partners, UCF will set the standard for medical education and improve health care in Central Florida."
