GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS
The College of Medicine, a component college of the University of Florida Health Science
Center, admitted the first class of medical students in September, 1956. The various programs
rapidly expanded to include a curriculum leading to the M.D. degree, a Ph.D. program in the
basic medical sciences, residency programs in the various specialties and subspecialties of
medicine, and numerous fellowship programs.
The College of Medicine provides leadership in medicine and allied health fields through
educational excellence, scientific discoveries, modem clinical services, and commitment to the
community. Located in Northcentral Florida, the College of Medicine is engaged in intramural
programs with the Gainesville Veterans Affairs Medical Center and extramural programs
involving neighboring communities as well as a network of educational services in Daytona
Beach, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Pensacola, Orlando, and other Florida cities.
Situated at the southeast corner of the 2000-acre campus of the University of Florida, the
College of Medicine enjoys the benefit of strong ties with other programs within the
university. The relationships to the other Health Science Center colleges, the teaching hospital
and other disciplines within the university provide a very strong academic base for the
College of Medicine.
The educational process of the College of Medicine begins with preprofessional counseling,
and includes the program leading to the M.D. degree, residency training, and continuing
medical education for the practicing physician. Each phase of this educational continuum as
particular emphasis and significance.
Educational offerings for the student of medicine include the humanities, natural and
biological sciences, and technology to provide a well-balanced educational experience. The
graduates of the program must have an appreciation both for the breadth of the art and skills
of medicine and the highly specialized and fundamental nature of scientific medicine. The
graduates from the M.D. degree program must have sufficient experience to be able to choose
from the many career opportunities in medicine. Also, they must have acquired an attitude of
continuing self-education and have learned to adhere to the highest ethical and scientific
standards of the medical profession.
The College of Medicine and its programs first received full national accreditation in 1960,
again in 1976 and in 1983 by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education composed of
representatives of the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American Medical
Association. The residency programs are accredited individually by each respective specialty
of the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education, and all 21 residency training
programs are accredited.

STUDENTS
The College of Medicine attracts students of the highest caliber into the various programs.
High standards of scholastic achievement, moral character, and motivation are required of the
student. The highly personal relationship between patient and physician places the latter in a
position of trust, which demands maturity, integrity, intellectual honesty, and a sense of
responsibility. Because of the vast area of science which must be mastered by the physician,
the student of medicine must possess a high basic aptitude supplemented by academic
preparation of the highest order. Through an active recruitment program, a broader
representation of the ethnic mixture is sought in the student body. The college adheres strictly
to the principle of ethnic, racial, religious, sex and social equality among its student body and
faculty.
The University of Florida does not discriminate on the basis of handicap in the recruitment
and admission of students, the recruitment and employment of faculty and staff, and the
operation of any of its programs and activities, as specified by federal laws and regulations.
The designated coordinator for university compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation
Act of 1973 is the associate dean of student affairs.


FACULTY
The student is accepted into a fellowship of learning that should mark the beginning of an
educational and personal relationship of long duration. To meet the requirements of modem
medical education, the faculty must be representative of a wide area of academic experience.
In addition to the demand for highest competence in a chosen field of specialization, the
faculty must be interested in education and in students. Close faculty-student relationships
are developed and maintained through personal, professional, and social contacts. The nature
of investigative and clinical training demands close interaction between faculty, students, and
the problem at hand, be it the patient or the object of scientific study.


RESEARCH
Individual and cooperative investigations constitute an important aspect of the activities of
faculty and students. Facilities and equipment are made available through state, private, and
federal funds. In addition to the research laboratories and animal facilities in the University of
Florida Health Science Center and the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, there are animal
research facilities at the Health Science Center Animal Research Farm. A new 240,000 square
foot biomedical research building, opened in 1990, houses additional research laboratories,
classrooms and faculty offices.
Research projects of the faculty of the College of Medicine range from problems of molecular
and cellular biology to all phases of basic and applied clinical investigation including
behavioral sciences, epidemiology, and many other disciplines. Collaborative projects are in




14









process with veterinary science, engineering, biology, nuclear sciences, psychology, sociology,
education, and many other disciplines.
In view of the nature of modern biomedical investigation, it is natural that many
interdepartmental efforts have evolved. Most of these involve faculties from the basic and
clinical sciences, and frequently from other colleges in the university. In general, these groups
are organized along categorical lines such as the Center for Neurobiological Sciences, the
Cardiovascular Group, the Tumor Biology Group, the Divisions of Infectious Diseases,
Genetics, Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Gastroenterology, to mention a few. These
groups serve a specific research need for the faculty and comprise very strong educational
units in the curriculum. The Clinical Research Center in Shands Hospital is a focus for clinical
investigation. Very active collaboration in both research and education exists between
faculties of the College of Medicine and the Colleges of Engineering, Education, Veterinary
Medicine and the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Educational opportunities in
biomedical engineering are available at all levels: prebaccalaureate, graduate, and
postgraduate.


FACILITIES
Most programs and faculty are housed in the University of Florida Health Science Center. The
Health Science Center's facilities include the Chandler A. Stetson Medical Sciences Building,
the Communicore Building (library, teaching laboratories and classrooms), the Academic
Research Building, the Colleges of Dentistry, Health Related Professions, Medicine, Nursing,
Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine, Shands Hospital, and the Gainesville Veterans Affairs
Medical Center.
The 476 bed Shands Hospital has nearly 20,000 impatient admissions recorded each year. The
outpatient clinics record over 189,000 visits per year. The Veterans Affairs Medical Center,
located across the street from the Health Science Center, has a capacity of 475 beds and
provides additional clinical and research sources. Both institutions offer ample opportunity
for hospital based bedside and ambulatory teaching. Formal educational affiliations have
been established in Tallahassee, Pensacola, Jacksonville, and Orlando which provide
additional basic science and clinical science resources.
The Communicore is a facility unique to the College of Medicine. This building houses lecture
and seminar rooms, multidisciplinary teaching laboratories designed to be flexible enough to
accommodate the wide variety of laboratory teaching programs of the different disciplines,
study areas, and a center for development and utilization of audiovisual and automated
learning aids. In addition, the Health Science Center Library has a collection of over 215,000
books and periodicals. Computer-based bibliographic retrieval services, such as MEDLINE,
are available to support teaching and research activities. The library participates in a regional
network of medical libraries to supplement its information resources.

ACADEMIC CONSIDERATIONS
Medicine, as a profession deeply rooted in the culture of the society it serves, must be
responsible to social needs and demands. Deficiencies in the medical system developed
slowly in recent decades and have assumed critical proportions in the last few years. Both the
consumer and the provider of medical care now are expecting major changes in the practice of
medicine and its capacity to serve all elements of our population. Medical education,
although somewhat isolated from the day-to-day problem of medical care, has been drawn
into the mainstream of crisis and change. In response to this challenge, the faculty of the
College of Medicine emphasizes ongoing review and the adaptation of the educational
programs to the needs of society for today and tomorrow.


THE CONTINUUM OF
MEDICAL EDUCATION
The curriculum of the College of Medicine has several basic objectives. First, it is designed to
instill in the medical student the attitude of a physician. By presenting the student with a
clinical problem and sufficient basic science data to understand the organic malfunction, it is
hoped the learning process will assume a meaningful significance. Second, the curriculum is
designed to acquaint students with the different facets of medicine in such a fashion as to
permit each student to make an early choice from the many career offerings in medicine.
Third, the study plan permits the student to assume the responsibility for developing an
educational program relevant to their particular needs--a program which will permit the
maximum benefit to be derived from the learning process.
The present medical curriculum is the product of a trend over the last 70 years in which the
medical school and its parent university have established close academic ties. This trend has
had a great impact on the quality and character of medical education. It has facilitated the
emergence of scientific medicine and increased sophistication of patient care (including
preventive medicine). These advances have produced a rising cost of medical education and
medical care, as well as a separation of medical schools and their faculties from organized
medicine and the practitioner. As our society approaches an important juncture in the
development of health and medical care systems, the conflict between education and practice
is becoming the cause of increasing concern for involved parties. Medical school faculties now
are studying carefully the long-range aspects of their educational endeavors, as well as their
position as proponents or intermediaries between opposite points of view. As a result of this
review process, significant proposals for far-reaching change are being made, which will have
a long-lasting impact on medical schools and medical education.

The introduction of clinical medicine in the first and second years and the opportunity to
select basic science courses during the elective year, are of special significance for modern
medicine since there is widespread recognition that delay between scientific discovery and its
clinical application is too long and must be shortened. It is expected that graduates of the
present program will have less difficulty in retaining a true feeling for a close relationship
between basic medical science and its clinical application.
FLEXIBILITY OF PROGRAMS
For many years, medical faculties attempted to adhere to a principle of completeness in spite
of the increased volume of knowledge in the basic medical and clinical sciences. New courses
were added and others were condensed until the deluge of factual material over-extended the
student's capacity for retention, as well as his of her facility for mental integration. In
addition, the assumption was made that a single standard program of instruction would be
adequate for all students accepted into an accredited medical program. Experience at the
University of Florida has since prompted consideration of the varying background of medical
students and a flexible curriculum that will be relevant to the individual's needs and will
permit incorporation for further developments in medical education. Consequently, the
present program at the University of Florida differs from the previous curriculum in the
following ways:
1) The basic or core program is not designed to transmit the total knowledge presumed
necessary for the practice of medicine. In many courses, the emphasis has changed from
presentation of content to the transmission of an educational process, whereby the student
is largely required to seek out the necessary content. Students may have gaps in the
knowledge of the sciences basic to the practice of medicine, however they should have









sufficient information to make a rational and well-informed decision regarding further
education.
2) Although students in a medical school all share the desire to become physicians, their
backgrounds and specific goals vary greatly. By permitting greater individualization, the
curriculum enables the student to adapt his or her personal program to previous
educational experience, individual learning speed, and to career plans for the future. In
providing for this flexibility, the medical curriculum will become an educational
continuum beginning with professional education and culminating with continuing
medical education for the practicing physician.
3) The medical program endeavors to free the student from the classroom and provide an
opportunity to pursue studies in the library or laboratory. While the regular course load
for the first year of the medical student previously consisted of 34 to 36 hours per week, it
has been reduced. The student with more time to devote to individual study may require
greater support through guidance, counseling and teaching aids such as computer
assisted instruction and others.
4) It is anticipated that the length of study in the medical program can be adapted naturally
to the needs of the individual student. In some instances first-year courses may be used to
fulfill undergraduate degree requirements. In others, a student may embark on an early
residency program or purse a combined M.D.-Ph.D. degree program. The prime
emphasis of the curriculum is on providing a program which has the elasticity to
encompass individual needs and interests. In addition to the change in structure of the
curriculum, two programs for entrance into medical school besides the traditional route
have been developed:
A) Junior Honors Medical Program
The Junior Honors Medical Program is a combined (seven year) BS-MD program offered by
the University of Florida. This is a program for undergraduate students who have chosen a
career in the medical profession and who have demonstrated superior scholastic ability and
personal development during their first two academic years. Application to participate in this
unique and challenging program is made during the student's second year of college
(sophomore). Students are notified of their acceptance at the end of their second year.
Selection into the program secures admission into the College of Medicine at the University of
Florida contingent upon satisfactory completion of the Junior Honors Medical Program. Each
student's progress will be monitored throughout the Junior Honors Medical Program and will
be reviewed at the end of the Junior Honors year to determine whether the student has
complied with the prerequisites and maintained the high standards expected of a student
participating in this accelerated Honors program. A satisfactory score on the Medical College
Admission Test (MCAT) is required prior to entrance into the College of Medicine.
Students are eligible to apply to the Junior Honors Medical Program if they have (1)
completed at least eight (8) semester hours, including laboratories, of: biology, general
(Inorganic) chemistry and organic chemistry; (2) completed two semesters of calculus; (3)
completed the University of Florida's general education requirements of English, social
sciences and humanities, either via course work or placement credit and (4) have a minimum


21









of a 3.5 or higher cumulative grade point average. Students who have also completed their
foreign language and/or physics requirements during their first two years of college are in a
favored position with respect to application to the Junior Honors Program. Although most
applications are received from University of Florida students, applications are accepted from
students from other colleges. Non-Florida residents are also eligible to apply. The program is
limited to 12 students per year.

During the Junior Honors year (third year), students participate in required seminars. The
seminars provide extensive faculty contact and a solid background in biochemistry and other
areas of preclinical science. The emphasis is placed on student participation in a relatively
non-structured and informal format. Past Junior Honor participants have found this to be an
educational experience of great value in the development of a critical and inquiring approach
to learning. In addition to these seminars, students continue to register for course work within
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Many students in the program also participate in
research projects.

The fourth-year students who have successfully completed the Junior Honors year merge into
the standard first-year medical program. The schedule for these students also includes arts
and sciences courses during the fall semester. Since the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
grants credit for the third-year seminars as well as portions of the first-year medical programs,
participants are eligible to receive a Bachelor of Science degree at the end of the first year of
medical school.

procedures may be obtained by writing the Director, Junior Honors Program, College of
Medicine, University of Florida, Box J-216, J.H.M. Health Science Center, Gainesville, Florida
32610.
B) Program in Medical Sciences (PIMS)
The Program in Medical Sciences (PIMS), an inter-university approach to medical education,
began in the fall of 1971 at the Florida State and Florida A&M Universities in Tallahassee. In
this program, the two universities in the state capitol have combined efforts to provide
instruction in the preclinical medical sciences parallel to the first-year curriculum of the
University of Florida College of Medicine. Since 1985, the University of West Florida in
Pensacola, has also participated in this program. Since this instruction is integrated with
traditional undergraduate degree programs in a college such as Liberal Arts and Sciences, the
time permitted to achieve competency in the preclinical sciences is flexible. While it is
expected that most students will spend five years in reaching this level, a number of
accelerated students any do so in four years. For others, six years may be required.

Participation and enrollment in PIMS courses is limited to full-time undergraduate students at
Florida State University, Florida A&M University and the University of West Florida. After
satisfactory completion of the required PIMS curriculum, an evaluation committee reviews
and recommends to the dean of the College of Medicine those students eligible for transfer to
the University of Florida College of Medicine. Upon final approval by the dean, these
students transfer at the second year level and the remaining three years of medical education
are completed at the University of Florida College of Medicine.
The curriculum is designed around a nucleus of existing courses in the social, biological and
physical sciences and contains all of the traditional basic science disciplines, except physical
diagnosis and systemic pathology. Clinical seminars and other clinical experiences are
furnished by the community of practicing physicians in Tallahassee with the cooperation of
Tallahassee Memorial Regional Medical Center, the Florida State University Health Service,
and the Neighborhood Health Clinic in Tallahassee.
Detailed information on the Program in Medical Sciences can be obtained by writing the
Office of the Director, Program in Medical Sciences, Florida State University, Tallahassee,
32306.
UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA HEALTH SCIENCE CENTER-JACKSONVILLE (UFHSC-J)
Eleven hospitals in nearby Jacksonville form the University of Florida Health Science Center
Jacksonville (UFHSC-J), originally named the Jacksonville Health Education Programs, INC.
(JHEP), with the goal of improving medical education in the community. In 1969, by action of
the Board of Regents, UFHSC-J became a division of the J. Hillis Miller Health Science Center
in Gainesville. 150 full-time faculty of the University of Florida College of Medicine are
located in Jacksonville.





23








There are elective rotations and required clerkships in a variety of clinical areas available in
Jacksonville. These rotations provide the opportunity to observe patients in a community
hospital setting and to become acquainted with the many problems of health care delivery in
an urban area. In addition to supervision by a large full-time faculty, the student may have
the opportunity to work with community based practitioners.
Fifteen accredited residency programs are conducted in Jacksonville. Residents participate in
the teaching of students. UFHSC-J conducts a number of programs for continuing education
for practicing physicians to which students are welcome.
A nationally patterned medical library system supports the teaching and research activities
with extensive periodical holdings, bibliographic services, and audiovisual collections.
The pediatric programs of the University of Florida are enriched by their affiliation with the
Nemours Children's Medical Center. Currently an outpatient unit, this newly emerging
resource for North Florida will soon offer inpatient services at a state-of-the-art children's
hospital as well. Many of the staff of the Nemours Children's Medical Center are University
of Florida faculty and there are joint efforts in research, education and patient care.


PENSACOLA EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM, INC. (PEP)
A unique academic affiliation between the College of Medicine and the Pensacola Educational
Program (PEP) has been established. This affiliation provides the undergraduate medical
student from the University of Florida an opportunity to obtain a variety of clinical elective
experiences in Pensacola. In addition, numerous opportunities exist for graduate and
postgraduate educational programs between the two institutions.


COMMUNITY MEDICINE
The development of Shands Hospital at the University of Florida has played an important part
in accelerating the emergence of scientific medicine by providing ideal conditions for certain
aspects of clinical teaching. The student in the teaching hospital, however, is confronted with
highly selected types of patient problems, which in the outside world are exceptions rather
that the rule. Less insight is gained into the day-to-day problems of minor and major illnesses
as they occur in the community.
The College of Medicine has developed educational programs in various community settings
to provide medical students and physicians-in-training with experiences in the common
medical problems of ambulatory health care. The rural health activities of the College of
Medicine are renowned for their contributions to patient care and medical education.
By extending the education of medical students into the community, students are also
provided the opportunity to view and understand the non-clinical factors of family and
community groups and institutions that affect medical care. Every medical student will
participate in a community health clerkship which also includes an opportunity for a brief




24








preceptorship with a practicing physician. Through these community experiences the faculty
and students together will become familiar with the common medical problems seldom seen
in a hospital.
A basic premise in the community health programs of the College of Medicine is that they will
direct the talents of the faculty toward the problems of health care delivery and engage the
interest and enthusiasm of the medical students toward their future resolution.
COMMUNITY PHYSICIAN PRECEPTOR PROGRAM
The Community Physician Preceptor Program provides early clinical experience and exposure
to physicians in the community. It begins in the first semester gross anatomy course wherein
students learn elementary physical diagnosis skills correlated with the anatomic areas being
studied. Approximately 12 weeks into the semester, after gross anatomy is completed,
students are assigned to physician preceptors in the community or the health center. Students
spend two hours on alternate weeks in the office of their preceptor observing and interacting
with patients. In addition, students are required to keep a journal of their experience
identifying learning issues, and write a summary paper.


ADMISSION INFORMATION

In exceptional instances, students upon whom the degree has not
fitted.


Applicants will be appraised on the basis of personal attributes, academic record, evaluation
of achievements, references, performance on the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT)
and personal interviews if granted by the selection committee.
Applicants currently pursuing graduate level work toward a Ph.D. degree or other
professional degree are obligated to complete all degree requirements prior to application to
the College of Medicine for study toward the M.D. degree.


The College of Medicine does not discriminate on the basis of race,


sex, creed, or national


origin. Although Florida residents are given preference in admission, the College of Medicine
does consider a limited number of nonresident applicants each year. Nonresident applicants
must demonstrate superior qualifications. The College of Medicine welcomes applications
from minority students regardless of state residence. Only United States citizens and
permanent resident aliens will be considered.









UNDERGRADUATE EDUCATION
Basic Science Requirements: The minimum science admissions requirements include basic
introductory courses and laboratories in the following subjects:
Biology-8 semester hours (12 quarter hours)
General (Inorganic) Chemistry-8 semester hours (12 quarter hours)
Organic Chemistry-8 semester hours (12 quarter hours)
Physics-8 semesters hours (12 quarter hours)
Many students desire an additional background in science. For this purpose, courses in
physiology, biochemistry, microbiology and genetics might be considered. It is not necessary
to choose one of the sciences as a college major.
No specific requirement is set in the area of mathematics since, at most colleges, some
mathematics is prerequisite to physics and chemistry. Some college work in calculus is
strongly recommended. Familiarity with the principles of statistics and their application to
the analysis of data is an important asset for any medical student. A knowledge of computers
and computer programming is valuable in medical education, but is not required.
Consideration should be given by the student to participation in honors courses, independent
study, and scientific research. These activities present opportunities for an unstructured
learning experience.
Electives: The remainder of the college work should be distributed throughout the
humanities, social and behavioral sciences. The student should select subjects which tend to
broaden the educational experience.
Extracurricular Activities: Extracurricular activities and employment both during the
academic year and the summers are important contributions to an individual's development.
Experience in medical and paramedical areas often contributes toward an understanding of
health care delivery problems and helps to solidify the basis of the student's motivation
toward a career in medicine.
MEDICAL COLLEGE ADMISSION TEST
Every applicant must take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT), at a time that enables
scores to be received by the Admissions Office prior to the application deadline. The test is
given twice yearly in many colleges and universities. For further information about the test,
write the MCAT Registration; American College Testing Program, P.O. Box 414, Iowa City,
Iowa 52243.
APPLICATION AND ACCEPTANCE PROCEDURES
Admission to the College of Medicine is highly competitive. Careful appraisal of each
applicant is based on information gained from academic records, scores on the Medical
College Admission Test, recommendations by premedical advisors and teachers and, in some



26









cases, personal interviews, the College of Medicine endeavors to select those students who
appear to be the most qualified for a career in medicine.
1) The College of Medicine is a participating institution in the American Medical College
Application Service (AMCAS). The AMCAS application form may be obtained after June
1 from the University of Florida's Preprofessional Office, Room 380 Little Hall or the
College of Medicine, Student Admissions Office, Box J-216, JHMHSC, University of
Florida, Gainesville, Florida 32611.
2) It is highly recommended that the minimum science admissions requirements be
completed prior to making application.
3) After careful screening of the preliminary AMCAS applications by the Medical Selection
Committee, selected applicants will be sent a formal University of Florida Application
requesting additional information. The completed form should be returned directly to the
University of Florida College of Medicine Admissions Office and arrangements made for
submission of a preprofessional committee evaluation or letters of recommendation. This
second phase requires an application fee of $15 from all students not previously enrolled
in the University of Florida. This fee is not refundable. All materials should be submitted
as early as possible, but no later than December 1 of each year.
4) Following committee review of all the application materials, interviews with members of
the Medical Selection Committee will be arranged for competitive applicants. These
interviews are usually held on Fridays at the University of Florida College of Medicine
campus in Gainesville.
5) An applicant has two weeks to reply to an offer of admission to the College of Medicine
by filing a written statement of intent. If the applicant is later accepted by another school
which he or she prefers, the applicant is obligated to notify the College of Medicine in
writing, as soon as possible, of a decision to withdraw.
6) No deposit is required from accepted applicants.
The above procedures follow the guidelines of the Association of American Medical Colleges.

ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE
AT AN ADVANCED STANDING STATUS
A person may seek transfer to the College of Medicine from a LCME accredited United States
or Canadian medical school. Individuals who already have received a degree from a college
of medicine will not be admitted to the M.D. curriculum at advanced standing status. A
person may be admitted to the College of Medicine at an advanced standing status within the
context of the following guidelines:
1) A vacancy exists for the admission of a person to advanced standing status.
2) An applicant must wish to transfer in order to maintain a marriage in this locale.




27









3) Previous professional or graduate education is adjudged adequate in quantity, quality,
and time frame to have been competitive for admission as a first-year student at this
college and to permit entry into the curriculum at a level beyond the first year. An
applicant who is, for any reason, on probation or not in good academic standing at the
school from which transfer is sought will not be recommended for transfer to this college.
4) There is no history of attitudinal, behavioral or emotional problems.
5) Applicants currently pursuing graduate level work toward a Ph.D. degree or other
professional degrees are required to complete all degree requirements prior to application
for admission to the College of Medicine for study toward the M.D. degree.
Initial consideration of an applicant for advanced standing will be undertaken only when the
applicant furnishes the following information upon request:
1) A signed narrative written by the applicant expressing the circumstances which prompted
the request to transfer at an advanced standing status.
2) A letter of recommendation from the dean of the professional or graduate school in which
the applicant either was enrolled or is presently enrolled. This letter must also state that
the applicant is free of behavioral, attitudinal, or emotional problems.
3) Official transcripts of all post-high school academic course work.
4) Medical College Admission Test official scores.
5) A properly executed information form furnished by the College of Medicine Office of
Admissions.
6) United States citizenship.

An applicant judged to be qualified on the basis of the furnished information may by
extended an interview. Applications for admission at advanced standing will not be
processed unless a vacancy exists in the respective class for which the application is made.
Special programs of study leading to graduate degrees in the basic medical sciences and
admission requirements for these programs are outlined on page 43 of this catalog.


PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION
LEADING TO THE M.D. DEGREE
Once a decision has been reached by both the medical school and the applicant, the student
will pursue his or her educational endeavors from the vantage of a physician striving to
achieve well-rounded capacities as a physician-humanist and scientist in his or her profession
and community.
The four years of medical education are divided into three blocks of time, which are identified
as Preclinical Coursework (two years), Clinical Clerkships (one year), and Postclerkship


28









Electives and Required Courses (one year).


During the preclinical period, students are


provided a core of basic science and general clinical information.


The required clinical


clerkship rotations provide the students with more specific clinical information and
experiences in eight general areas of medicine -- anesthesiology, community health, medicine,
neurology, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry, and surgery. The fourth year
includes four weeks of required rotations in surgery and medicine, and four weeks of


advanced pharmacology.


The remainder of the fourth year is devoted to elective course work.


The provisions of this catalog are not to be construed as an irrevocable contract between the
student and the College of Medicine. The college reserves the right to effect policy and
regulatory changes at any time.
The curriculum is constantly undergoing evaluation and refinement. Changes may occur
from year to year in order to improve the educational program of the undergraduate student
of medicine.
Preclinical
The preclinical course work is designed to provide students with essential basic science and
general clinical information necessary for their clinical training. Teaching teams from both
basic and clinical science departments will participate.
Students may elect the option of taking the preclinical basic science courses over a three-year
period of time. This option provides an opportunity for the M.D.-Ph.D. candidates and other


students to begin research activities earlier and in more depth.


It also provides the


opportunity for students to pursue course work outside the traditional medical school


curriculum.


Such course work could include public health, hospital administration or


international health. In addition, students electing to enroll in an honors program might find
this three-year option appealing. Finally, this less intense three-year track may be
advantageous to students with less intensive science backgrounds and who would benefit


from more moderately paced course work.
curriculum range from 22-25. In the three


Contact hours per week for the standard two-year
e-year track, contact hours would range form 8-25


with an average of about 17 contact hours per week. Students' request to participate in the
three-year track must receive prior review and approval by the chairman of the curriculum
committee and the chairman of the academic status committee.
A student who fails any course work, or who meets the standards for dismissal and is given
the option of repeating an academic year in its entirety is not eligible to elect the three-year
option. During the first academic year, a student who is in good academic standing can
choose to move into the three-year program. To take advantage of the opportunities that the
three-year option offers, the decision should be made prior to beginning the first year or prior
to the first day of the second semester. No student who has received a final course grade of F
in any course will be allowed to move into the three-year curriculum.







29









The course schedule under the standard two-year curriculum proceeds as follows:
First Year
Anatomy by Diagnostic Imaging (Radiologic Anatomy) presents normal anatomy in three
dimensions as depicted in various imaging modalities (radiography, computed tomography,
MRI, angiography and ultrasound). The course is designed to integrate with the Basic
Anatomy Course given concurrently.
Basic Biochemistry and Molecular Biology consists of lectures and discussion sessions
designed to increase the student's basic biochemical knowledge of cellular functions. General


topics include physical biochemistry, metabolism, and molecular biology.


Students with


previous experience in biochemistry and the approval of the instructor may be exempt from
attending lectures.
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Disease is designed to build on the student's basic
biochemical knowledge of cellular function. Information is presented in lectures and small
group discussions. Topics covered include nutrition, physical biochemistry, metabolism and
molecular biology with emphasis placed on the biochemical and molecular biological aspects
of pathobiology.
Cell Biology presents information on the roles of cells in the function of the organism. The
mechanism by which cells execute their roles is stressed.
Community Physicians Preceptorship Program introduces students to aspects of the physical
examination and patient interviewing. During the second phase of the program, students are
assigned to community physicians. Through this experience, the student interacts with
patients and comes to a better understanding of the interaction between the physician and
patients in the office practice setting.
Gross Anatomy presents an introduction to the basic structure and mechanics of the human


body.


The dynamics of learning occur primarily in the laboratory and are supplemented with


lectures, conferences, and demonstrations as needed.

Social and Ethical Issues in Medicine introduces the medical student to the major social and
ethical issues in medical practice.
Systematic Pathology emphasizes the effects of disease on the human organism and the
correlation of disease with symptoms, signs, and the course of illness.
Third Year
The third year is devoted to clinical clerkships, in which groups of students rotate among the
major clinical services experiencing direct patient contact. During these clerkships, the
student becomes an integral member of the medical team and has direct responsibility for
his/her assigned patients during rotation.
Students are allowed to displace one clerkship rotation into the fourth year and take two
elective units in place of the clerkship, in order to provide some flexibility in choice. To ensure
that each clerkship has a relatively constant number of students, no more than three students
can displace any one clerkship at a given time. Delaying a clerkship requires approval of the
course director, the student's advisor, the course director for the chosen elective, the associate
dean for student affairs, and the associate dean for education.
Each clinical service conducts a variety of seminars and conferences. These are considered to
be part of the clerkship and attendance is expected.

Fourth Year
The fourth year occupies the last 11 months of the curriculum and consists of elective
experiences combined with one month advanced clerkships in medicine, surgery and
pharmacology.
The students are permitted considerable freedom in designing their program. For students
who have already chosen a specialty, fourth year programs may be designed to provide early
experiences related to their career choice. For students who have not yet chosen a specialty,
the curriculum may be designed to permit an exploration of their interests in several different
specialties or to provide a very broad clinical experience that would be useful in many
different specialties. In addition, the fourth year elective program may help students with
known weaknesses in clinical or basic science areas strengthen their knowledge base prior to
housestaff training. All elective choices must be made carefully in conjunction with the
student's faculty advisor.
Clinical electives at the Shands Hospital or at the University Hospital in Jacksonville are
available in all of the major disciplines of medicine. The student may work as an advanced
clerk, assuming greater responsibilities than in the third year. Elective courses in the basic
sciences are also available, and closely supervised independent study programs may be
designed to allow study of areas in medicine not represented by formal course offerings.
Students in the lower third of the class must have the approval of the Academic Status
Committee before applying for elective coursework taken away from the J. Hillis Miller
Health Science Center. Students who apply for more than three months of extramural
rotations must obtain their advisor's permission and approval of the Academic Status
Committee.


33









Estimated percentages of time and credit hours allotted for various elective offerings have
been calculated on the basis of credit hours per academic semester. Each student must
complete a minimum of 40 semester credit hours in the fourth year to be eligible for
graduation. However, students must remain enrolled and take coursework up to the time of
graduation regardless of the total credit hours accumulated.


EVALUATION
The Academic Status Committee has the responsibility to review each student's performance
and make recommendations to the dean of the College of Medicine regarding promotion and
graduation. Members of the committee include faculty representatives from each department
of the College of Medicine, preclinical and third year coordinators, the director of minority
affairs, the associate dean for education, and the associate dean for student affairs (who serves
as chairman).
The overall performance of a student will be considered by the Academic Status Committee in
preparing recommendations regarding promotion, graduation, and general academic ranking
of the students. Information upon which recommendations will be made include grades,
written evaluations, and cognitive and noncognitive data submitted by the faculty of the
various curricular units, and scores on the National Board Examinations. All students will be
informed of their academic progress on a regular basis.
Standards of Performance
Students' performance in academic course work will be evaluated by letter grades A through
F or Pass-Fail. The Pass (P) or Fail (F) grading system will be used in special circumstances as
approved by the Curriculum Committee. Passing grades are A through C in order of
excellence. A grade of D connotes unsatisfactory performance. If a grade of D is assigned,
remediation of this grade will be required. Failing grades are (F), WF (Withdrew Failing), or I
(Incomplete). The I or F grade may be given to a student who fails to complete course
requirements or who fails to attend or participate in required course activities. Students must
receive a passing grade in every course to be recommended for graduation. If approved for
remediation by the Academic Status Committee, any student with a D or failing grade must
complete required remedial coursework with a passing grade.

elective coursework, the student must have a grade point average of 2.0 or better and must
have satisfactorily completed all remedial work with a grade of C or higher. Students



34









receiving a grade of less than C in remedial work may be dismissed. National Board
Examinations Parts I and II must be taken before the student is approved for graduation.
Students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievements will be recommended
for graduation with honors. Excellence of different types in varied fields will be considered,
such as superior academic work, outstanding student research and thesis, and other special
achievements. Nomination and selection of students for graduation with special honors will
be made by the faculty.
Probation and Dismissal
Students who fail to achieve satisfactory progress may be placed on academic probation or
dismissed. The purposes of probation are: 1) to identify unsatisfactory performance at an
early date, 2) to provide an opportunity for the student to receive counseling, 3) to provide the
student whose progress is unsatisfactory with further opportunity to improve and perform
satisfactorily, and 4) to notify the student that satisfactory progress is not being made toward
standards required for graduation.
In accordance with university regulation, any student with less than a 2.0 grade point average
will be placed on probation. Additionally, the following standards apply to students of the
College of Medicine:
1) Preclinical first year--Any student receiving failing grades in coursework totaling 7 or
more credit hours or Ds or Fs in coursework totaling 13 or more credit hours during the
first year will be automatically dismissed. Any student receiving an F in any course work
or Ds in coursework totaling 7 or more credit hours will be placed on probation.
2) Preclinical second year--Any student receiving Ds or Fs totaling 10 or more credit hours
will be automatically dismissed. Any student receiving an F in any coursework or Ds in
course work totaling 5 or more credit hours will be placed on probation.
Students electing to take the basic sciences under the three year optional tract will be governed
by the following criteria--During the first two years of the option, any student receiving Fs in
coursework totaling 7 or more credit hours or Ds or Fs in coursework totaling 9 or more credit
hour will be automatically dismissed. Any student receiving a D or F in any coursework will
be placed on probation. During the final year of the three year option, any student receiving
Ds or Fs totaling 10 or more credit hours will be automatically dismissed. Any student
receiving an F in any coursework or Ds in coursework totaling five or more credit hours will
be placed on probation.
No student will be allowed to begin the clinical clerkships until all basic science coursework
has been satisfactorily completed. Students who have received failing or incomplete grades in
preclinical coursework are not allowed to continue into the clerkship until that coursework
has been satisfactorily remediated.
3) Third year--Any student receiving a D or F in any clerkship will be automatically placed
on probation for one year. A student receiving a D or F in any clerkship while on
probation will automatically be dismissed. Any student receiving a grade of incomplete
will be reviewed by the Academic Status Committee.



35









The progress of any student who has been on academic probation for two consecutive years
will be reviewed by the Academic Status Committee for consideration of dismissal. Students
who fail to demonstrate appropriate academic progress for promotion and graduation may be
dismissed.
The fourth year students are not allowed to begin their elective work until all unsatisfactory
coursework during clinical clerkships has been remediated. Students in the lower third of the
class must have the approval of the Academic Status Committee before applying for elective
coursework taken away from the J. Hillis Miller Health Science Center, UFHSC Jacksonville,
or Orlando Regional Medical Center. Students who apply for more than three months of
extramural rotations must obtain their advisor's permission and approval of the Academic
Status Committee.
4) Fourth Year--Any student receiving an F in required fourth-year clerkships or Ds or Fs in
coursework totaling 8 or more credit hours during this academic period will be
automatically dismissed. A student receiving a D in any of the required fourth-year
clerkships or a D or F grade in any other required or elective coursework will
automatically placed on probation and cannot be recommended for graduation until
remedial work had been completed successfully.


Removal of Probation
A student will be removed from academic probation by action of the Academic Status
Committee when he or she has received no grade of less than C for any coursework during a
period of one calender year after being placed on probation and the student has maintained a
grade point average of 2.0 or better.

Appeals
A student has the right to appeal academic dismissal or any other actions affecting his or her
academic status to the Academic Status Committee. The intent to appeal must be submitted
by the student in writing to the Chairman of the Academic Status Committee within two
working days after receiving written notification of dismissal or other actions. The student
will be notified in writing and invited to attend a meeting of the Academic Status Committee
which will be convened within ten calender days to hear the student's appeal, unless
justification exists for a delay, in which case the student's appeal will be heard as promptly
thereafter as possible.
A negative decision by the Academic Status Committee may be appealed to the dean of the
College of Medicine. The intent to appeal to the dean of the College of Medicine must be
submitted by the student in writing to the dean within two working days after receiving
written notification of an adverse action by the Academic Status Committee. The decision of
the dean in all appeals is final unless the president of the university or the president's
designee agrees to hear the appeal. A student must notify the dean and submit the appeal to
the president's office within two working days.



36









Probation for Students Who Successfully Appeal Dismissal
Students whose academic dismissal is reversed by successful appeal and who are permitted to
repeat coursework will be automatically dismissed if a grade of less than C is received in any
course during the repeated time period. If the coursework is satisfactorily completed,
students will continue on probation for an additional calender year, at which time the student
may be removed from probation by favorable action of the Academic Status Committee.
Students who are allowed to repeat fourth year coursework will remain on probation until
they have successfully completed all of the requirements for graduation.

GRADUATE AND POSTGRADUATE PROGRAMS
GRADUATE EDUCATION IN THE MEDICAL SCIENCES
Programs Leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. Degrees
The educational continuum of the medical sciences is designed to provide flexibility in terms
of the type of degree which may be earned as well as the type of subject matter which may be
included in the individual curriculum.
Programs leading to the Ph.D. degree in medical sciences are offered by the College of
Medicine through the Graduate School of the university. The programs offered in anatomy
and cell biology, biochemistry and molecular biology, immunology and medical microbiology,
neuroscience, pathology and laboratory medicine, pharmacology and therapeutics, and
physiology are intended to give talented individuals an opportunity to engage in careers of
research and teaching in the basic scientific medical disciplines. An interdisciplinary program
in "Cell Structure and Function in Health and Disease" was added during the 1990-1991
academic year. The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology also offers a program
leading to the Ph.D. in biochemistry.
The M.S. degree in the medical sciences is offered by the Departments of Anatomy and Cell
Biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Immunology and Medical Microbiology,
Neuroscience, Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Pharmacology and Therapeutics, and
Physiology. The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology offers the M.S. degree in
biochemistry.
The prime requirements for admission to these programs are personal integrity, motivation,
and general scholastic achievement. Candidates must satisfy the general requirements for
admission to the Graduate School and produce a satisfactory score on the Graduate Record
Examination. Candidates should have an undergraduate major in a biological or physical
science, but other undergraduate areas of concentration appropriate for study in the basic
medical sciences are engineering and mathematics. In order to remedy deficiencies in their
backgrounds, some candidates may find it necessary to take additional undergraduate courses
even though they hold the A.B. or B.S. degree required for Graduate School admission.
The completion of a satisfactory dissertation based on original research is the most important
single requirement of the Ph.D. program. Most of the work involved in the dissertation
ordinarily will be done in the last two years of residence, but candidates will be encouraged to
begin their research in a preliminary exploratory fashion toward the end of their first year.
Graduate education in the basic medical sciences is planned from an interdisciplinary point of
view, but with a major in the fields of anatomy and cell biology, biochemistry and molecular
biology, immunology and medical microbiology, neuroscience, pathology and laboratory
medicine, pharmacology and therapeutics, or physiology. A minor is not required but may be
elected in any relevant discipline approved for graduate study in the university.






43








Graduate students have the opportunity of assisting in the teaching of medical and
undergraduate courses and most students are advised to do so as part of their training.
Teaching and research assistantships and nonresident tuition scholarships are available to
most students.
Medical Scientist Training Program (Combined M.D.-Ph.D. Degree)
The Medical Scientist Training Program is designed for highly qualified students who are
strongly motivated toward an academic career in the medical sciences. This is a flexible six to
seven year program which attempts to provide in-depth graduate education in a basic science
discipline, a rigorous medical education, and an introduction to clinical investigation.
Candidates for the program must satisfy admission requirements for the College of Medicine
and the Graduate School. Since successful candidates are selected from those admitted to the
College of Medicine, application begins with standard application to the medical school. All
candidates who receive the supplemental application forms will be given the option to apply
for the Medical Scientist Training Program; direction for such application is provided at that
time. Successful applicants are expected to achieve satisfactory scores on the Medical College
Admission Test and to have personal qualities of high order, superior intellectual
accomplishments, research experience and genuine interests in human welfare and an
academic career. The Graduate Record Examination may be required before matriculation.
Students already enrolled in medical school may apply to the program.
The student will enroll in all courses for the M.D. degree. In addition, the student will be
required to complete the requirements for the Ph.D. as established by the university and the
department in which dissertation work is undertaken. In most cases, that department will be
one of the seven basic science departments in the College of Medicine, but under special
circumstances other departments in the university may be accepted as alternatives. The
student will receive credit toward both degrees for those courses applicable to each. In
addition, special seminars and courses in human biology and clinical research are
incorporated into the program.
The program is designed to be flexible, and the Medical Scientist Training Program Steering
Committee will assist the student in planning the curriculum and determining progress. In
most cases, the student will be expected to initiate a research project during the summer
before starting medical school and select a graduate department at the end of the summer.
Students will be evaluated by examination similar to those in the separate M.D. and Ph.D.
programs. The Committee on Academic Status of the College of Medicine will evaluate the
student's performance and recommend promotion to the next class or awarding of the M.D.
degree. The Graduate Advisory Committee, in conjunction with the department from which
the student will receive the Ph.D. degree, will assess the graduate performance.
Most, if not all, students accepted to the program can anticipate financial support (graduate
research assistantships) during the graduate portion of the program. In addition, select
students will be awarded annual stipends of at least $9000 while in the medical portion of the
program on the condition that both degrees are obtained.




44









Following completion of both the M.D. and Ph.D. degrees, it is possible for graduates of the


program to further pursue an integrated, postgraduate training program in both
medicine and basic research. Such training programs are individually designed I
research, clinical and subspecialty skills to be jointly pursued. Successful admission

GRADUATE MEDICAL EDUCATION (RESIDENCIES AND FELLOWSHIPS)
All programs of residency training offered in Shands Hospital and the Veterans Affairs
Medical Center are fully accredited and approved by the American Medical Association
Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education and are listed in the Directory of
Approved Residencies. In addition, the Senate of the university formally recognized these
programs as academic non-degree programs of the College of Medicine at its meeting of
June 26, 1969. The hospitals hold certification from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of
Health Care Organizations.
The residency programs only accept individuals who are graduates of medical schools
accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education and graduates of foreign medical
schools who hold the ECFMG certificate and pass the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination
in the Medical Sciences (FMGEMS).


Residencies:


Residencies vary in length with each of the specialties (between two and five


years). Formal residencies are offered in anesthesiology, family practice, medicine (internal
medicine), neurology, neurosurgery, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, orthopaedic
surgery, pathology, pediatrics, psychiatry, radiology and its subspecialties, and surgery
(general, plastic, thoracic, otolaryngology, and urology).

Applications: Detailed program information and applications for these programs may be
obtained by writing the appropriate departmental chairman, chief of service, or the Office of
the Dean, College of Medicine.

LICENSURE
Licensure to practice medicine and surgery in Florida can be obtained by endorsement if the
applicant has been certified by licensure examination of the Federation of State Medical
Boards of the United States, Inc. (FLEX) or is certified by the National Board of Medical
Examiners as having completed its examination, provided that said examination required
shall have been so certified within the ten years immediately preceding the filing of the
application for licensure. Such license is good only if the recipient engages actively in medical
practice for a minimum of one year. Graduates of approved medical schools in the United
States and Canada are eligible for their endorsement. In addition, graduates of foreign
medical schools who otherwise are qualified and whose credentials have been evaluated by
the Educational Council for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG), and who have passed the
American medical qualification examination for foreign medical graduates, may be considered
for endorsement. The applicant must have completed at least one year of approved internship
in the United States, legally have declared intention to become a citizen and have been a
resident of the United States for a minimum of one year.
Since various state laws differ as to licensure requirements, it is the responsibility of the
medical student to become familiar with the qualifications for licensure in the state or states
which he or she might consider as potential locations for the practice of medicine.

STUDENT INFORMATION
FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS
The fee structure for Florida residents and nonresidents in the M.D. program of the College of
Medicine is subject to change from year to year. Fee information can be obtained after July 1,
1991, by contacting the Student Financial Services, Room 100 THE HUB, Gainesville, Florida,
32611. Students are registered for two semesters during their first and fourth years and for
three semesters the second and third years. Fees and method of payment are subject to
change and are payable in accordance with the university regulations. The registration fee
includes a Student Health Fee and a Student Activity Fee for each of the semesters. Most of
the services and facilities of the Student Health Services are available to students without
charge. A group insurance program sponsored by Student Government is available at a very
reasonable cost. The Activity Fee covers the student's attendance at a wide variety of social,
athletic, and cultural events which are offered by the university.
Registration dates for each class in the College of Medicine are set by the Registrar's Office
and the students are notified when their group is expected to complete registration. These
fees must be paid in accordance with dates published in these instructions or they are
increased by $25.
Students who are interested in doing work toward an advanced degree in the medical sciences
should consult the Bulletin of the Graduate School for information concerning tuition and fees.
Textbooks and instruments needed by a first-year student will require an expenditure of about
$700-$900. Purchase of a microscope will not be required as the College of Medicine, through
a special fund, has established a microscope bank and provides each entering student with a
microscope on a loan basis.
The minimal annual cost for a single Florida resident for the first year is approximately $9000
plus tuition.

INDEPENDENT INTERDISCIPLINARY MAJOR
IN BIOCHEMISTRY AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY
Students matriculating in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences who desire an
undergraduate emphasis in biochemistry and molecular biology, should consider the
Independent Interdisciplinary Major Program. The program is designed for students who
wish to pursue either graduate research in biochemistry and related medical sciences, or with
a strong interest in academic medicine. An independent interdisciplinary major in
biochemistry may be arranged through the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular
Biology and submitted for approval by the Committee of Interdisciplinary Studies of the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Program applicants must have a strong background in
chemistry and biology courses.
The advanced level course work required includes BCH 4024, two semesters of BCH 4905
Biochemistry Senior Research and submission of senior thesis. The latter provides an
opportunity for an exceptionally well-qualified student to participate with a particular faculty
member on an individualized research program in the faculty member's research facility.
Enrollment in BCH 4024 is a suggested prerequisite for submission of a proposed independent
interdisciplinary major in biochemistry to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and for
enrollment in BCH 4905. Electives include advanced undergraduate offerings of the
Departments of Botany, Chemistry, Computer Sciences, Microbiology and Cell Science,
Neuroscience and Zoology.
Because of the individualized nature of the program, only a small number of students selected
by the sponsoring faculty will be accepted annually. Application should be made during the
sophomore year to enter the program during the junior year to the Department of
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology or to the assistant dean for preprofessional education in
the Colleges of Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine.
