Medical Education (M.D.)

U-F College of Medicine students walk around campus on a sunny August morning.

Continually ranked among the nation’s top-40 medical schools by the U.S. News & World Report, the University of Florida College of Medicine offers a curriculum that takes into consideration the rapid changes in science, technology, and society that are reshaping health care and medicine.  

With access to knowledgeable faculty, world-class clinical facilities, and simulation centers, students are provided with all the tools needed to acquire the skills necessary for the successful evaluation and treatment of patients. 

The college is known for its programs in competency-based education, performance-based teaching, community and urban clinical training, interactive learning, and the clinical presentation model, which is a UF-developed list of approximately 120 ways patients can present illnesses to physicians. The model helps students identify the illness when the symptom is the only clue a patient can give.
