UNIVERSITY


OF


FLORIDA


The University of Florida, a residential,


land-


grant institution, is the oldest and largest of
Florida's universities, and is the tenth largest


university in America.


It aspires to be one of the


10 best public universities in the nation.
One of the 54 institutions selected to mem-
bership in the Association of American Univer-
sities, the University of Florida has a compre-
hensive range of teaching and research pro-
grams at the undergraduate, professional and


graduate levels.


Undergraduates can major in


The University will continue to expand its
interdisciplinary activity in teaching, research
and service because some of the world's most
critical problems require effort for resolution.
The comprehensive scope of its teaching and
research programs makes the University of
Florida both a statewide and a national resource
for service in many different areas. Many of the
University's programs extend beyond the state and


nation to encompass the world.

University's offerings.
As part of its mission to master old and to
create new knowledge and to transmit both, the
University emphasizes research by its students


and its faculty.


Graduate programs are avail-


able to students in 152 fields at the master's
level, and 89 fields at the doctoral level. This
emphasis upon research is reflected in contracts
and grants received during 1990-91 totalling


$191 million.


The presence on a single campus


of such a wide variety of disciplines has led to
the development of over 100 interdisciplinary
centers throughout the University, most of
which are research oriented with specific mis-


sons.


When those missions are accomplished,


Science Center, the Institute for Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences (IFAS), and the Engineering and
Industrial Experiment Station (EIES).
The mission of the Health Science Center is
to provide educational opportunity in the
undergraduate and graduate health professions
for the citizens of Florida, to deliver quality
state-of-the art diagnostic and medical services,
and to conduct medical research to understand,


cure and help prevent disease.


Education,


research, and medical services will be provided
at all locations in accordance with funding
plans approved by the Board of Regents. The
Health Science Center is composed of a teaching


hospital and six colleges:


medicine, pharmacy,


nursing, health-related professions, and the State's
colleges of dentistry and veterinary medicine.


those centers dissolve and new centers dealing
with new knowledge and new missions arise.










IFAS has a statewide mission for research,
extension and teaching programs in food,
agriculture and natural resources to help Florida
maintain a sustainable agriculture, an industry
that will be competitive in world markets and
compatible with Florida's urban population and


sensitive environment.


IFAS has a residential


college with 24 departments, 23 research and
education centers located throughout the state,
and a county extension office in each of Florida's


67 counties.


EIES, the research arm of the College of
Engineering together with the NASA/SUS
Southern Technology Applications Center
(STAC), and the Statewide Florida Engineering
Education Delivery System (FEEDS) serves the
needs of Florida's industries, and state and local


to perform service to the state, the nation and


the international community.


Currently, the


University has 55 endowed chairs and plans to


have 100 endowed chairs by 1993.


Its faculty


includes members of the Royal Society of Lon-
don, the National Academy of Science, the
National Academy of Engineering and the
Institute of Medicine of the National Academy


of Science.


The University will continue to add


to this list of distinguished faculty including
those holding membership in other national
academies, both American and international.
Students are drawn to the University of
Florida from all parts of the state, nation and


world.


The undergraduate student body is


among the best academically prepared student


bodies in public universities in the nation.


Cur-


The mission of EIES is to provide high


quality fundamental and applied engineering
research expertise to help solve important
technology related to problems faced by the
citizens of Florida.
The University's faculty are chosen for their
commitment to good teaching, their ability to
conduct high quality research, and their desire

universities in the number of national merit

G GENERAL INFORMATION


Medical education is a continuous learning
process that begins with the decision to become a
physician and ends with retirement from the profes-


slon.


The formal component of this continuum is


divided into three stages.


The first is premedical


education occurring in an undergraduate university


setting.


This stage should provide a combination of


liberal education with science prerequisites concluding
with the awarding of a bachelor's degree.
The next stage is medical undergraduate educa-
tion, usually requiring four years and leading to the


to maintain, enhance and adjust her or his competence
through formal and informal continuing medical education.
It is the responsibility of colleges of medicine to
select medical students, provide their education leading
to the M.D. degree, prepare them for specialty training
in residency programs and ensure that each under-
stands the critical importance of the enduring phase of
continuing education throughout their independent
medical careers.
The most critical part of this educational continuum
is medical school. Only colleges of medicine can grant


M.D. degree.

The third formal stage is graduate medical educa-
tion in specialty programs. These residency programs
of patient care under supervision, take place predomi-
nantly in a hospital environment and generally require
three to six years, depending upon the specialty.
Residency training prepares the physician for specialty
certification and the independent practice of medicine.
Further graduate medical education in a subspe-
cialty can be pursued in fellowship programs.
Licensure to practice medicine is achieved through
a three step examination sequence during medical
school and residency training. The United States
Medical Licensing Examination is administered by the
National Board of Medical Examiners.
These formal stages of medical education, lasting
from 11 to 14 years, lead to licensure and specialty
certification, but thereafter the physician is responsible


Medicine is the cornerstone of the University of Florida
Health Science Center which also includes the Colleges
of Dentistry, Health Related Professions, Nursing,
Pharmacy, and Veterinary Medicine.
The University of Florida College of Medicine has
strived for excellence since admitting its first class in
September, 1956. It first received full accreditation
from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education in
1960, and again in 1963, 1969, 1976 and 1983.
Rapid expansion in education, biomedical research,
clinical care and other services have permitted the
College to offer a curriculum leading to a Ph.D. degree
in each of the basic medical sciences and a combined
M.D./Ph.D. program in addition to the M.D. degree.
Graduate medical education is provided predomi-
nantly in cooperation with Shands Hospital and the
Gainesville Veterans Affairs Medical Center through

residencies and fellowships in programs accredited by
the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Educa-
tion. Affiliations with community health care pro-
grams provide additional opportunities for the
College's educational and clinical care activities.
The University of Florida Health Science Center,
including Shands Hospital and the Gainesville Veter-
ans Affairs Medical Center, is located at the southeast
corner of the University of Florida campus. The
structural unity of the Health Science Center and the
geographic location on the university campus promote
an interdisciplinary approach to education, research
and patient care.


STUDENTS
The College of Medicine recognizes its obligation
to graduate, for the State of Florida and society, highly


competent and responsible physicians.


The realization


of this goal is not possible without excellent students.
The College strives for a diverse student population
without preconceptions about what constitutes an ideal
applicant. Equal opportunity and ethnic, racial,
religious, gender and cultural diversity are important


principles for our students and faculty.


The University


of Florida agrees with and abides by regulations
regarding the recruitment and admission of students
with handicaps, as it does regarding recruitment and
employment of faculty and staff.
Interest in becoming a physician, in having the
opportunity to contribute to caring for the health needs
of fellow humans, begins before medical school. The


faculty of the College of Medicine nurtures this interest
whenever it occurs and encourages those with desire
and talent to be confident they can become physicians.
Part of this encouragement is through
preprofessional counseling provided cooperatively by
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the
College of Medicine.
Volunteerism in communities and hospitals also is
an important way to nurture interest and learn about


the variety of opportunities in health care.


Exposure


to biomedical research is an additional avenue for
exploring opportunities in health care. All of these
experiences help prospective medical students decide if
they have the necessary desire and dedication to
become physician members of the healthcare team.
Admission to the College of Medicine is based on
quantitative and qualitative criteria. Quantitative
criteria are grade point average and performance on
standardized examinations, such as the Medical
College Admissions Test. Qualitative criteria include
attitudes, values and personality characteristics.
After an applicant's academic potential to succeed
in challenging learning situations is determined by
quantitative criteria, the admissions committee is
charged to concentrate on the applicant's social and
personal history to focus on her or his potential as a
physician. During the interview process, admission
committee members seek indicators of altruism,
community service, concern for the broader human
condition, and deep desire to prevent illness and care
for the sick that might predict a future physician who is
competent, compassionate and trustworthy.








Students accepted to the College of Medicine begin
a challenging learning experience leading to a poten-
tially exciting and rewarding career in community
practice, academic medicine or government service.
The knowledge base necessary to be an effective
physician requires that each student have the requisite
ability, aptitude and premedical preparation.
But more is needed to become a good physician


than adequate knowledge.


The social contract that


exists between patient and physician demands atten-
tion to the highest standards of moral and ethical
behavior throughout one's medical career.
From the beginning of medical school, our students
are placed in an environment intended to help them
realize the special joys and unique responsibilities that
the profession combines. Early exposure to clinician
role models in the academic setting and practicing
community is part of a learning experience designed to
incorporate them into the family of physicians who are
responsible for the health needs of society.
For the four years in medical school, concern and
effort from the faculty are directed toward imparting to
all students the importance of the art as well as science
of medicine-enabling them to find the optimal
balance between knowing and caring, and helping
them understand their inevitable limitations.
It is the responsibility of the College of Medicine to
help all students develop the combination of knowl-
edge and maturity that is sufficient for assuming
incremental responsibility.
Upon graduation, every student should be pre-
pared to assume the responsibilities required in a


supervised clinical care setting, whatever area of
specialized training they might pursue, and to have
developed an appreciation of the need for continued
self-learning.
It is the philosophy of this College of Medicine that
all patients in need of care will be provided that care,
even though caring for patients with some illnesses
may put the safety of staff and students in jeopardy.
Caring for others more than self is part of the tradition
of medicine and helps graduates become aware that
they have the great privilege of asking fellow humans
to allow them to care for their health needs and it is


their responsibility to maintain tha


trust.


FACULTY
The evolution of modern academic health centers
has produced many opportunities for students and


faculty.


The knowledge and skills needed to deliver


technologically advanced clinical care and to make
scientific discoveries have become highly specialized.
This provides the opportunity for students to learn of
the most recent advances in a large number of disci-
plines and to participate in rigorous research.
This necessary degree of specialization can make
the provision of a generalist education in basic science
and clinical medicine more difficult. It is the responsi-
bility of the College to provide the faculty and environ-
ments for learning that ensure its students receive the
appropriate generalist education while learning about
the latest scientific and clinical advances.






































The commitment to education at the College is
high. This commitment is a criterion for employment
and is a measure of academic success. Efforts are made
to encourage and facilitate educational, personal, and
social faculty-student interaction. Recognition by
students that the faculty are concerned about them as
people is essential to a quality learning environment.


RESEARCH
Exploring new ways to understand health and
disease through biomedical research is an exciting
mission of any academic health center. Research that
ranges from structural biology to medical sociology is
conducted in the laboratories and offices of the College
of Medicine and its affiliated institutions.
The College is especially proud of its research
focus at the intersection of basic and clinical science.
The College has more than 35 endowed research
professorships, numerous federally funded research
opportunities for medical students and a long-standing
clinical research center.
The future will include even more collaborative
research between basic scientists and clinicians, an
effort that will bring the unsolved scientific problems
discovered at the bedside to the laboratories of skilled
investigators. Increased collaboration between the
College of Medicine and other Health Center colleges
and with University programs in agriculture, educa-
tion, engineering, nuclear sciences, physics, psychology
and others is vital to utilizing available talent and
making exciting discoveries.


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 (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 548 bed Shands Hospital has more than 25,000
inpatient admissions recorded each year. The outpa-
tient clinics record more than 200,000 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 ambula-
tory teaching.
Formal educational affiliations have been estab-
lished 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,
study areas and a center for the 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 re-
gional network of medical libraries to supplement its
information resources.

S ** r











Students entering medical school today will be
independent practitioners in the 21st century. It is not
possible to visualize clearly the structure of the next
century's health care system, but it is certain that it will
be far different from today's.
The cost of healthcare will be an increasing focus of
concern and significant changes in physician and
hospital reimbursement are inevitable. A solution to
the paradox of having the best possible care in the
world, but inaccessible to millions of our own citizens
will be demanded by many and likely legislated by
government.
Judicious investment in health maintenance
through prevention of illness and injury will be seen as
wiser than the present expense of treating sickness.
Healthcare will become more a wellness than sickness
industry.
With continued aging of our population, caring for
the chronically ill and elderly will become a significant

in decisions about the use
?nt, and the treatment of
making decisions. This


involvement is but a step from the willing acceptance
of healthcare rationing.
There will be more concern about quality of life
and more indignation about impersonal death. Unless
physicians are sensitive to the health needs of their
community and society, the profession will no longer
be held in high esteem and nonphysicians will assume
many of the duties and responsibilities now reserved
for physicians.


Education of medical students in this country is the
exclusive responsibility of medical schools. In dis-
charging this responsibility, medical schools have the
obligation to anticipate and introduce change and
explore ways to prepare students for these changes.
This responsibility to continuously revise the educa-
tional process is made difficult because of multiple
missions.
The future success of this, and other colleges of
medicine, will be the realization of a single mission:
provision of healthcare for society through a synergism
of education, research and clinical care wherein each
component is seen as equally important and coopera-
tively pursued. Our students, faculty and staff ap-
proach this challenge with enthusiasm.
The University of Florida College of Medicine has
the responsibility to provide healthcare to the referral
community it serves and the obligation to prepare
physicians to independently provide compassionate
and skillful care in their own community.
This responsibility and obligation provides our
mission: to educate students and physicians in the
humanistic, scientific and technical principles of
medicine; to provide the environment and faculty to
make important biomedical discoveries; and to deliver
the highest quality healthcare to the patients we serve.
The educational program of the College has three
specific objectives. First, to provide a humane environ-
ment and a thoughtful faculty to foster and nurture the
proper attitudes and behaviors during the professional
development of each student. Second, to provide the
variety of experiences that will allow each student to
choose the field and specialty that will provide them a
satisfying career of service. Third, to prepare each




,BtaL",








student academically and emotionally for the rigors
and responsibilities of residency training and later
independent community clinical practice, academic
medicine or government service.
An essential prerequisite to being an effective
physician is a solid background in the sciences basic to


medicine.


The relevance of this scientific knowledge to


clinical medicine is important for learning, retaining
and applying the large amount of available informa-
tion.
Our curriculum provides significant clinical
experience with academic and community physicians


Second, everyone in this country will have access
to basic healthcare, both prevention and primary care.
Third, there will be rational assessment, cost
effective use and involvement of patients in deciding
the use of technology.
Fourth, physicians will work more closely with
other healthcare providers in managing coordinated
care and with their communities to provide this care
cost effectively.
Fifth, greater emphasis will be placed on humane
care of the chronically ill, ethical counseling, accep-
tance of inevitable death, and rational use of rehabilita-

early experience is not to teach the knowledge base and
technical skills of the physician, but to participate with
skilled physicians in communicating with their pa-
tients, serving their communities and utilizing a
relevant scientific basis in the care of their patients.
Whatever the precise structure of the future
healthcare system, it is apparent the College's curricu-
lum should meet current objectives while preparing
physicians for society's expectations of them in the 21st


Sixth, while meeting these expectations, physicians
will continue to be expected to provide the most

The ever expanding knowledge


base needed to provide such diagnosis and therapy
will require skilled information management.

programs, and from the faculty and its sponsors, will
be needed to meet the challenges and opportunities

This society will be older and more racially

The College is excited about these challenges


and culturally diverse. Before today's students finish
their professional careers, the number of people over
age 65 will have doubled-from about 32 million in the
mid 1990s to about 66 million by 2030. There also will
have been a large increase in African, Asian and
Hispanic-American populations.
These future demographic changes, combined with
the current perception that the high cost of healthcare
does not meet society's expectations for equal access,
healthier lives and rational use of technology, will
certainly lead to change.
Some changes are reasonably predictable. First,
more emphasis will be placed on preventive medicine
and maintaining health-promoting life styles.


and is confident it can lead the way in providing
opportunities for students and faculty.


THE CONTINUUM OF
MEDICAL EDUCATION
The curriculum of the College of Medicine has
several basic objectives. It is designed to instill in the
medical student the attitude of a physician. By pre-
senting the student with a clinical problem and suffi-
cient basic science data to understand the organic
malfunction, it is hoped the learning process will
assume a meaningful significance.







The curriculum also 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.
The study plan also 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 aca-


demic ties.


THE ART AND SCIENCE OF MEDICINE
The scientific basis of medicine is universally
accepted as a prerequisite for medical practice. Often
however, we are confronted with the idea that the
practice of medicine is an art rather than a science, and
that too much science in medical education renders the
future physician insensitive to the human needs of
patients.
Frequently medical students state that entrance into
medical school really does not bring about the expected
change in fulfillment of their motivational desires. Often


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 carefully studying
the long-range aspects of their educational endeavors,
as well as their position as proponents or intermediar-


ies 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.

Students may enter the University of Florida
College of Medicine through three admissions routes:
the regular or traditional admissions program, The
Junior Honors Medical Program, or the Program in
Medical Sciences.

Junior Honors Medical Program
The Junior Honors Medical Program is a combined
(seven year) B.S./M.D. program offered by the Univer-
sity 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: completed at least eight
(8) semester hours, including laboratories of biology,
general (inorganic) chemistry and organic chemistry;
completed two semesters of calculus; completed the








University of Florida's general education requirements
of English, social sciences and humanities, either via
course work or placement credit; and have a minimum
of a 3.5 or higher cumulative grade point average.
Students who also have 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


During the Junior Honors year (third year), students


participate in required seminars.


The seminars pro-


vide 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.

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. 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.

Program in Medical Sciences (PIMS)
Since 1971, Florida State University has partici-
pated in an inter-university program with the Univer-


sity of Florida College of Medicine.


The first year of


basic medical science courses is spent at FSU and the
remaining three years of medical education, leading to
the M.D. degree, are completed at the University of
Florida College of Medicine in Gainesville. The

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
HEALTH SCIENCE CENTER
JACKSONVILLE (UFHSC-J)
Several 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.


One hundred and fifty six full-


time faculty of the University of Florida College of
Medicine are located in Jacksonville.


In 1988, University Medical Center was designated
by the Board of Regents as the urban campus of the
Health Science Center.
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 full-time faculty, the
student may have the opportunity to work with


community based


practitioners.


Fifteen accredited residency programs are offered
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.


University of West Florida.








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'


Medical Center are University of


Florida faculty and there are joint efforts in research,
education and patient care.


COMMUNITY MEDICINE
The College of Medicine, primarily through the
departments of Community Health and Family
Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Obstet-
rics/Gynecology, has had community-based programs


for more than 20 years.


The rural component of these


Working with community physicians provides the
student with valuable role models for the practice of
medicine.
The AHEC Program further links the academic
health center with communities by encouraging
faculty members of the College of Medicine to partici-
pate in community-based education and thereby
brings much needed skills to underserved communi-
ties.
A basic premise of the community health pro-
grams of the College of Medicine is that they will
direct the talents of faculty towards problems of health
care delivery and engage the interest and enthusiasm
of the medical students toward their future resolution.


ADMISSION INFORMATION


educational experiences are well-recognized for their
innovative contributions to patient care and medical
education.
In response to community needs, as well as the
need for changes in medical education mandated by
changes in the teaching environment of teaching
hospitals, the College of Medicine has established an
Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Program for
the purpose of planning, developing and implement-
ing more extensive community-based educational
activities.
Through this program, students in each of the four
years of medical school will have the opportunity to
participate in clinical training activities in clinics and


private physicians'


offices throughout north Florida.


The delivery of primary health care is the major
focus of these activities and students have an opportu-
nity to become familiar with common medical prob-
lems which are seldom seen in the hospital setting.


The Applicant Pool
Students applying for admission to the University
of Florida College of Medicine should plan to com-


plete the requirements for a bachelor'


degree at an


accredited university or college by the time of matricu-


lation.


In exceptional instances, students upon whom


the degree has not been conferred may be admitted.
Applicants will be carefully 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
degrees are obligated to complete all degree require-
ments 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. Al-
though 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:

solidify the basis of the student's motivation
toward a career in medicine.

Admission to the College of Medicine at an
Advanced Standing Status
A person may seek transfer to the College of
Medicine from a Liaison Committee on Medical
Education (LCME) accredited United States or Cana-
dian 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 in the appropriate class.
2) An applicant must wish to transfer in order to
maintain a marriage in this locale.
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 require-
ments prior to application for admission to the
College of Medicine for study toward the M.D. degree.


6) Only under extraordinary circumstances will an
applicant who was previously not accepted by the
Admissions Committee be considered for transfer at
Advanced Standing status. Any such request will be
considered by the Chairperson of the Admissions
Committee at the time the student was not accepted
and the Associate Dean for Student Admissions and
Activities in consultation with the Senior Associate
Dean for Educational Affairs.


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 ex-
pressing 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 attitudinal,
behavioral, 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 or permanent resident
alien certification.
An applicant judged to be qualified on the basis of
the furnished information may be extended an interview.


Special programs of study leading


o graduate


degrees in the basic medical sciences and admission
requirements for these programs are outlined on page

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 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 and family medicine, medicine, neurology,
obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, psychiatry and


surgery.


The fourth year includes four weeks of


required advanced pharmacology, four weeks required
advanced medicine clerkship and four week selectives


in surgery and ambulatory care.


The remainder of the


fourth year is devoted to elective course work.
The provisions of this catalog are not to be con-
strued as an irrevocable contract between the student


and the College of Medicine.


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.
The college reserves the right to effect policy and
regulatory changes at any time.


Preclinical (Years One and Two)


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. I
also provides the opportunity for students to pursue
course work outside the traditional medical school
curriculum.








Additionally this less intense three-yvear track may
be advantageous to students with less intensive science
backgrounds who would benefit from more moder-
ately paced course work.
Contact hours per week for the standard two-year


curriculum range from 20-25. In
contact hours would range from


the three-vear track,


with an average


of about 17 contact hours per week.
A student's request to participate in the three-year
track must receive prior review and approval by the
associate dean for education and the chairman of the
academic status committee.
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 opportu-
nities 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. 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.
The course schedule under the standard two-year


curriculum proceeds as foil

THIRD YEAR


FOURTH YEAR


The third year is devoted to clinical clerkships, in
which groups of students rotate among the major
clinical services experiencing direct patient contact.
The required clinical clerkships include: medicine,
surgery, pediatrics, community health and family
medicine, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynecology,
neurology and anesthesiology. Students will spend 5-9
weeks participating in clerkships at UFHSC-Jackson-
ville. Housing will be provided during this period of
time.
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.


The fourth year occupies the last 11 months of the
curriculum and consists of elective experiences, four
weeks required advanced pharmacology, four weeks
required advanced medicine clerkship, and four week
selectives in surgery and ambulatory care.
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 explora-
tion 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 to 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 are available in all of the major
disciplines of medicine. In the clinical electives,
students may work as advanced clerks, assuming
greater responsibilities than they had in the third year.
Elective courses in the basic sciences also are
available. Additionally, independent study programs
may be designed to allow study of areas in medicine
not represented by formal course offerings.
Students who apply for more than three months of
extramural rotations must obtain their advisor's
permission and approval of the Academic Status
Committee.
Each student must complete a minimum of 40
semester credit hours in the fourth year to be eligible
for graduation. However, students must remain



37








enrolled and take coursework up to to the time of gradua-
tion regardless of the total credit hours accumulated.

EVALUATION


The Academic Status Committee has the responsi-
bility to review each student's performance and make
recommendations to the dean of the College of Medi-
cine regarding promotion and graduation. Members of
the committee include faculty representatives from
each department of the College of Medicine, coordina-
tors for the preclinical courses and third year
clerkships, the director of minority relations, 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. 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 United
States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).


The College of Medicine expects all medical
students to be professional in their dealings with
patients and to exhibit caring and compassionate


attitudes.


These and other non-cognitive qualities/


attitudes will be evaluated during patient contacts and
in other relevant settings. Attitudes inconsistent with
compassionate care or refusal by the student to partici-
pate in learning or patient care directed at certain
patient groups may be grounds for dismissal.
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;
F, Failure and WF, Withdrew Failing. If a grade of D or
F is assigned, remediation of this grade is required.
The I (Incomplete) 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 F grade must complete required
remedial coursework with a passing grade.
Remediation requirements will be determined by
the appropriate course director and approved by the
chairman of the respective department and the Aca-
demic Status Committee. Remediation must be
completed prior to entering the next academic year,
unless the plan for remediation, submitted by the








course director and approved by the Academic Status
Committee, allows continuation into the first months of
the next academic year.
Any incomplete coursework must be completed
within a prescribed period of time or the grade will be
converted to F.
The Academic Status Committee will review the
performance of all fourth-year students to be consid-
ered for graduation. In addition to the satisfactory
completion of all required and 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 receiving a grade of less than C in reme-


dial work may be dismissed.


USMLE steps 1 and


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:


to identify unsatisfac-


tory performance at an early date; to provide an
opportunity for the student to receive counseling; to
provide the student whose progress is unsatisfactory
with further opportunity to improve and perform
satisfactorily; and 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 F
grades in coursework totaling 9 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 5 or more credit hours will be
placed on probation.
2) Preclinical second year-Any student receiving Ds
or Fs in course work totaling 10 or more credit hours
will be automatically dismissed. Any student receiving
an F in any coursework or Ds in course work totaling 4
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 hours 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 in course work 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
D, F, or I 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.

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.
Fourth year students are not allowed to begin their
elective work until all D, F, or I grades given during
clinical clerkships have been remediated or the student
has received the approval of the Academic Status
Committee to proceed with electives pending
remediation of the coursework. 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 a
required fourth-year course, clerkship or selective or
Ds or Fs in elective coursework totaling 8 or more
credit hours during this academic period will be
automatically dismissed.


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 receiving a D in any required fourth-year
course, clerkship or selective or a D or F grade in an
elective course will be automatically placed on proba-
tion. No student will be recommended for graduation
until remedial work has been completed successfully.

Removal of Probation
A student will be removed from academic proba-
tion 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 calendar year after
being placed on probation and the student has main-
tained a grade point average of 2.0 or better.

Appeals
A student has the right to appeal academic dis-
missal or any other actions affecting his or her aca-
demic 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 Com-
mittee 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 calendar 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


A student must notify the dean and submit the


appeal to the president's office within two working days.

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 satisfacto-
rily completed, students will continue on probation for
an additional calendar 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.


ACADEMIC HONESTY
The University of Florida expects students to be


honest in all of their university classwork.


Therefore,


students are required to commit themselves to academic


honesty by signing the following statement


as part of


the admissions process.

The results are held confidential.


However, legislation both at the federal and state levels
may result in changes in the criteria for testing and
reporting.
If HIV infection occurs in a student, any recom-
mendations made or actions taken by the hospital or
the College of Medicine will respect the confidentiality
and welfare of the student in addition to the welfare of
patients, the hospital and the medical school.
All communicable diseases contracted by students
will be handled according to the protocols for Employee
Health and Infection Control to prevent dissemination


Policy for HIV and Other Infectious Diseases
A personal health history questionnaire completed
by the student is required prior to registration at the
University. Students are also required to present proof
of two immunizations against measles, mumps, rubella
(MMR) and in the absence of such proof will be
reimmunized by Student Health. In addition, immuni-
zation against hepatitis B is required prior to clinical
rotations.
Students, faculty or staff who have an occupational
exposure in the health center to hepatitis or to the
human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) should report
immediately to Employee Health and file an accident
report. For HIV exposures it is most important that
this take place within an hour. If Employee Health is
closed, report to the Shands Emergency Room. The
exposure will be investigated in a confidential manner


to patients and other health care workers.

infections will be reported to the State as required by law.

Health and Disability Insurance
Beginning with the Fall semester 1992, the College
of Medicine requires all medical students to be covered


by health insurance.


This insurance may be through a


family policy, with a private agency or through the
group policy offered by the University of Florida.
Students must provide proof of insurance to the Office
of Student Admissions and Activities, College of
Medicine before registering for classes.
The College of Medicine strongly advises all
medical students to acquire disability insurance.
Information on disability policies will be available to
all students in the Office of Student Admissions and
Activities, College of Medicine.









College of Medicine Dress Code Policy
The official dress code of the College of Medicine
is: clean shirts and shoes for graduate students and
students in the preclinical years. No shorts are to be


worn.


Ties for men, and white lab coats with name


tags shall be worn by all students and housestaff who
have contact with patients or are in patient care areas.
All College of Medicine students, at all levels of
education and training, are expected to maintain a
proper professional image in their behavior and
appearance at all times.

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 microbiol-
ogy, 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
science medical disciplines.
An interdisciplinary program in "Cell Structure
and Function in Health and Disease" and "Interdisci-
plinary Toxicology Graduate Specialization" were
added during the 1990-1991 academic year. Interdisci-
plinary programs in "Mammalian Genetics" and in


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 under-
graduate areas of concentration appropriate for study
in the basic medical sciences are engineering and
mathematics.
In order to remedy deficiencies in their back-
grounds, 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.
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 (MSTP) 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. The pro-
gram is administered by the Medical Scientist Training
Program Steering Committee consisting of members of
both clinical and basic science departments.
Candidates for the program must satisfy admission
requirements for the College of Medicine and the Gradu-
ate 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.

Students in the


program will also be exposed to special seminars and
courses in human biology and clinical research which
are incorporated into the program. Therefore, the
"normal" course requirements expected of graduate
Ph.D. students by the individual basic science depart-
ments will be waived and only one core course, deter-


mined by the student's mentor in consultation with
appropriate members of the student's department, will


be required.
In some


cases,


this requirement may have already


been met through courses taken during the first two years
of the medical curriculum. The student's Ph.D. graduate
advisory committee reflects the interdisciplinary nature
of the program and will be composed of the student's
mentor and members of both the mentor's department
and the MSTP program's educational committee.
The MSTP educational committee, consists of the
MSTP steering committee plus appropriate qualified
faculty approved by the MSTP steering committee.
The program is designed to be flexible, and the
Medical Scientist Training Program Steering Committee









will assist in planning the curriculum and determining
progress throughout the student's career, in keeping
with the interdisciplinary nature of the program.
In most cases, the student will be expected to
initiate a research project during the summer before
starting medical school and, if necessary, a second
research project the summer following the first and/or
second year after matriculation into the program.
The student usually selects a mentor for the Ph.D.
thesis by the end of the second year of the program.
Standards of evaluation for both the M.D. and Ph.D.
portions of the combined program will be 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 award-


ing of the M.D. degree.


The Graduate Advisory


Committee, in conjunction with the MSTP steering
committee will assess 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 $9,000 while in the medical
portion of the program on the condition that both
degrees are obtained.


Graduate Medical Education (Residencies
and Fellowships)
Graduate Medical Education has become an
integral part of the training of the practicing physician.
The University of Florida recognizes the importance of
graduate medical education and sponsors programs
leading to board eligibility in virtually all the special-
ties recognized by the Accrediting Council on Gradu-


ate Medical Education (ACGME).


All of the programs


sponsored by the University of Florida are approved


by the ACGME and listed in the directory of approved
residencies.
Most of the residency training occurs in Shands
Hospital or the adjacent Veterans Affairs Medical
Center. The family practice residency is primarily
based at Alachua General Hospital.
Certain specialty programs rotate residents to other
hospitals in order to maximize their educational


experience.


All hospitals in which graduate education


is conducted hold certification from the Joint Commis-
sion on Accreditation of Health Care Organizations.
Formal residency programs are offered in anesthe-
sia, dermatology, family practice, general surgery,
internal medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, obstetrics
and gynecology, ophthalmology, orthopaedic surgery,
otolaryngology, pathology, pediatrics, plastic surgery,
psychiatry, radiology and its subspecialties, thoracic
surgery, urology and vascular surgery. Salaries and
benefits are competitive with salaries and benefits paid
to other housestaff in this region of the country.
A limited number of clinical fellowships, some of
which lead to subspecialty board eligibility are offered
in the various subspecialties of anesthesiology, family
practice, medicine, pathology, pediatrics, psychiatry,
radiology and surgery. Most departments offer the
opportunity to do research during residency training
and there is the opportunity to work toward advanced
degrees in collaboration with the basic science depart-
ments if the trainee so selects.
Application to the residency program should be
made through the matching program or directly to the
residency program directors at the University of
Florida.
University of Florida residency programs only
accept individuals who are graduates of medical
schools accredited by the LCME and graduates of
foreign medical schools who hold the Educational
Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG)

The single examination system ensures the mainte-
nance of high standards based on performance required
of students in, or graduates of, medical schools accredited
by the LCME; strives for cost-containment and efficiency
in combining two examination sequences; and preserves
the complementary roles of medical licensing examina-


tions and other requirements for licensure, such


Licensure
The United States Medical Licensing Examination
(USMLE) is a single examination system for use by all


U.S. medical licensing jurisdictions to


assess


all candi-


dates equitably for initial medical licensure.
Initial licensure to practice medicine and surgery in
Florida can be obtained by completing all three pro-
gressive steps required in the USMLE.
The USMLE replaces the two currently existing
examination sequences used in the medical licensing
process: the Federation Licensing Examination (FLEX)
and the certifying examination of the National Board of


Medical Examiners


(NBME).


Phase-in of USMLE begins in 1992 with the first
administration of the USMLE Step 1 in June. Full
implementation of the USMLE Steps 1-3 and phase-out
of the FLEX Components one and two and NBME Parts
I, II and III will be completed by 1995.
Step 1 focuses on key concepts of basic biomedical
science, with special emphasis on principles and
mechanisms underlying disease and modes of therapy.
Step 2 focuses on clinical science essential for practice
within a supervised setting.
Step 3 will focus on aspects of biomedical and clinical
science essential for the unsupervised practice of
medicine.


as the


quality and amount of medical education and post-
graduate training.
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.


Continuing Medical Education
The College of Medicine recognizes its responsibil-
ity in the continuum of medical education by assisting
the physician-in-practice to gain new knowledge and
expertise to improve patient care.
The Office of Continuing Medical Education
(CME), under the Associate Dean for CME, assesses the
needs of the practicing physician and, working with its
advisory committee, plans workshops, conferences,
seminars and symposia for the practicing physician.
These programs meet the standard of the American
Medical Association for the Physician's Recognition
Award. In addition, departments and divisions within
the College of Medicine offer specialty rounds and
conferences that the practicing physician is eligible to
attend. All of these programs enable the physician to
fulfill the requirements of licensure in the State of Florida.
Other programs in CME are conducted in coopera-
tion with the Florida Board of Medicine, the Florida
Medical Association, the Florida Academy of Family
Physicians, and a variety of medical specialty groups.











FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS

FELLOWSHIPS
Student Research Fellowships:


These fellowships are


made possible by grants from voluntary health agencies
in Florida, pharmaceutical firms, the National Institutes
of Health, and other agencies.
Medical student research holds high priority in the
College of Medicine with the primary objective being that
of involving the inquisitive student in a self-learning
experience in medical research.
As an incentive to become involved in research,
students are offered an opportunity to apply for fellowship
support which is available on a part-time basis during
the academic year and on a full-time basis during
summer vacations.
These fellowships are available to incoming medical
students during the summer prior to their matriculation.
The only other time that full time research (10 weeks) is
generally available is during the summer between the
first and second year of medical school. Fellowships are
awarded on a competitive basis with a progress report
and continuation application required for each semester.
In addition to providing fellowships for research, this
program also sponsors a Research Day for medical
students to report the findings of their research and will
contribute funds (when available) to the travel expenses
of medical students who present the results of their
research at national conferences.


On the basis of the results of the research projects
and their presentation, medical students are eligible for
the annual Faculty Research Award, Albert G. King
Award, John Harrington Tanous, M.D. Cancer Research
Award, and the Alpha Omega Alpha Research Award.
Graduating students may also be considered for
Graduation with Honors based on research.


LIVING ACCOMMODATIONS
Housing on campus should be arranged through the
Office of the Director of Housing, University of Florida,
Museum Road at S.W. 13th Street, Gainesville, Florida
(904/392-2161). Beaty Towers has four-person suites at
$844 per semester per student.
For married students, apartments in Corry, Diamond,
University Villages and Tanglewood are available. These
are modern two-story buildings of brick construction
containing one, two and a few three-bedroom apartments
at $192 to $337 per month (all prices subject to change).
The 103 units comprising Schucht Memorial Village
($252 per student per month; $212 with roommate) are
adjacent to Shands Hospital and priority is given, when
possible, to single housestaff and medical students who
have clinical responsibilities requiring quick access to the
Health Science Center. To secure favorable consideration,
application for on-campus housing should be made
immediately upon acceptance to the College of Medicine.
Private homes and privately operated rooming houses
and apartments provide many accommodations for
students. The University's Division of Housing also offers a
referral service through the off-campus housing section
where current listings are available. These listings are
not compiled for mailing since they are subject to constant
change, and mutually satisfactory rental arrangements
can be made normally only by the student after a per-
sonal inspection of facilities and a conference with the
landlord. Initial contacts should be made at least 30 days
before school begins.

respiration, circulation, physiology of muscle, cardiac
electrophysiology, epithelial transport, neonatal
physiology and sensory physiology.
Undergraduate majors appropriate as foundations
for the study of physiology are biology, chemistry,
engineering, mathematics or physics. The following
courses are especially useful as a background for the
study of physiology: general biology, vertebrate
biology, general chemistry, analytical chemistry,
organic chemistry, physical chemistry, general physics,
calculus, and statistics. Students may find it necessary
to remedy deficiencies in their background by taking

INTERDISCIPLINARY PROGRAMS
CELL STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
Interdisciplinary graduate study in cell structure
and function provides students with a strong back-
ground in the application of morphological, molecular,
biophysical, genetic and immunological approaches to
basic problems relating to cell function. The interdisci-
plinary nature of the specialization permits a broad
spectrum of research opportunities tailored to the
specific needs of each student.
Approximately 50 faculty members participate in
the program. Research areas include developmental
biology, gametogenesis, intracellular targeting, molecu-
lar organization and function of organelles,
cytoskeleton, signal transduction, action of hormones
and neurotransmitters, energy metabolism and control,
visual biochemistry, cellular and molecular immunol-
ogy, biomembranes/membrane transport, molecular
basis of disease, cancer biology, and mechanisms of
viral infection. Prerequisites include a basic course in
cell biology, biochemistry and physical chemistry or
equivalents.
During the first year the student takes courses in
Cell and Tissue Biology (GMS 5621), Molecular Biology
or Genetics (BCH 6415 or GMS 6152). Three research
rotations are required, starting at the end of the first
semester and completed by the beginning of the second
year. At that time the student selects one of the depart-
ments in the College of Medicine that will represent his
or her major area.








In the second year, the student also selects a disser-
tation chair and committee and takes Advanced Physi-


cal IBiochemistrv (BC!


h740) and two courses to fulfill


major departmental requirements.


The student should


also complete the qualifying examinations, oral and
written, which are administered by members of the
interdisciplinary faculty and the chosen department.
)During the third and fourth years and beyond, if
necessary, the student completes departmental require-
ments and completes and defends the dissertation
research.
In addition to the above requirements, students will
be expected to participate in research discussion groups
to be organized by the interdisciplinary faculty, as well
as departmental journal clubs. Student teaching, if any,
will be determined by the individual departments. For
additional information write to Director of Interdiscipli-
nary Programs, College of Medicine, Box 100215
JHMIISC.

TOXICOLOGY
The Center for Environmental and Human Toxicol-
ogy serves as the focal point for activities concerning the
effects of chemicals on human and animal health. The
Center's affiliated faculty is composed of approximately
20 to 30 scientists and clinicians, interested in elucidat-
ing the mechanisms of chemical-induced toxicity, and is
drawn from the Colleges of Medicine, Veterinary
Medicine and Engineering, and the Institute of Food


and Agricultural Sciences.


The broadly based, interdis-


ciplinary expertise provided by this faculty also is used
to address complex issues related to the protection of
public health and the environment.
Students who wish to receive graduate training in
interdisciplinary toxicology leading to a Ph.D. enroll
through one of the participating graduate programs,
such as Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Pathology and


Laboratory Medicine, Animal Science, or Food Science


and Human Nutrition.


The number of graduate


programs involved in interdisciplinary toxicology, as
well as the variety of perspectives provided by their
disciplines, allows a great deal of flexibility in provid-
ing a plan of graduate study to meet an individual
student's interests and goals in toxicology. Student
course work and dissertation research are guided by
the Center's researchers and affiliated faculty who are
also members of the graduate faculty of the student's


major department.


Dissertation research may be


conducted either in the student's department, or at the
toxicology laboratory facilities located at the Center.

VISION SCIENCE TRAINING
The Department of Ophthalmology maintains a
Vision Sciences Training Program for students seeking
the Ph.D. degree. Primary financial support for the
program is provided by an NIH National Eye Institute
Training Grant. This program is designed for training
in the areas of molecular/cellular biology, biochemis-
try, and immunology with particular emphasis on


vision.


The program is organized to rigorously


instruct and reinforce skills pertinent to experimental
science and involves coursework in molecular and cell
biology, genetics and immunology as well as indepen-
dent research, oral presentations, written research
proposals, peer review and the sharpening of commu-
nicative skills.
The program is interdisciplinary and utilizes a
core group of 12 faculty preceptors with active vision
research and training programs whose primary and
joint appointments span the majority of the basic
science departments at the University of Florida


College of Medicine.


The Department of Ophthalmol-


ogy will serve as the administrative and logistical center
for this program, but individual faculty preceptors








maintain primary graduate training appointments in
the Departments of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Bio-
chemistry and Molecular Biology, Immunology and
Medical Microbiology, Neuroscience, Pathology and
Laboratory Medicine, and Pharmacology and Thera-
peutics. Many preceptors share cross appointments
multiple basic science and clinical departments thus
allowing trainees to gain access to virtually the full
range of scientific and training expertise available in


the College of Medicine.
