UNIVERSITY


OF


FLORIDA


MISSION


The University of Florida belongs to an ancient
tradition of great universities. We participate in an
elaborate conversation among scholars and students
that extends over space and time linking the experi-
ences of Western Europe with the traditions and
histories of all cultures, that explores the limits of the
physical and biological universes, and that nurtures
and prepares generations of educated people to
address the problems of our societies. While the
University of Florida recognizes no limits on its
intellectual boundaries, and our faculty and students
remain free to explore wherever the mind and imagina-
tion lead, we live in a real world whose constraints
limit what we can do. Out of the conflict between our
universal intellectual aspirations and the limitations


of our environment, comes


university


the definition of the


s goals.


Education


American colleges and universities share the
fundamental educational mission of teaching students.
The undergraduate experience, based in the arts and
sciences, remains at the core of higher education in
America. The formation of educated people, the
transformation of mind through learning, and the
launching of a lifetime of intellectual growth: these
goals remain central to every university. The under-
graduate foundation of American higher education
has grown more complex as the knowledge we teach
has grown more complex. Where once we had a single
track through the arts and sciences leading to a degree
we now have multiple tracks leading to many degrees
in arts and sciences as well as in a range of professional
schools. Yet even with the variety of degrees, American
university undergraduate education must rest on the
fundamental knowledge of the liberal arts and sciences.


In our academic world we recognize two rather
imprecisely defined categories of higher education:
colleges and universities. The traditional American
college specializes in a carefully crafted four-year
undergraduate program, generally focused almost


entirely on the arts and sciences.


Universities extend


the range of this undergraduate education to include
advanced or graduate study leading to the Ph.D.
Most American universities also include a variety of
undergraduate and graduate professional programs,
masters degree programs, and the like. The University


of Florida shares these traditions.


As an American


university, we have a major commitment to under-
graduate education as the foundation of our academic
organization and we pursue graduate education for
the Ph.D. as well as many other graduate degrees in
professional fields.
We are, in addition, a major public, comprehen-
sive, land-grant, research university. Each of these
adjectives defines one of our characteristics, and
through frequent repetition, this description takes on
the style of a ritual incantation: rhythmic, reverent, and
infrequently examined. What, then, does each of these
key words mean?


Major


Here, at the head of the list, we


find one of our


most important aspirations. We will be, we must be,
and we are, a major university. We define ourselves
in comparison to the best universities we can find.
We need not be the absolutely unambiguously best,
but we must be among the best universities in the
world. Exact ranking of the best universities is a
meaningless exercise, but most of us can name 60
great universities. By whatever indicator of quality
we choose, our university should fall into this group.










Public


We exist thanks to the commitment and invest-
ment of the people of the State of Florida. Genera-
tions of tax dollars have constructed the facilities we
enjoy and have paid the major portion of our operat-
ing budget. The graduates of this institution, edu-
cated with tax dollars, have provided the majority of
our private funding. Our state legislators created the
conditions that permit our faculty to educate our
students, pursue their research, conduct their clinical
practice, and serve their statewide constituencies. We
exist, then, within the public sector, responsible and
responsive to the needs of the citizens of our state.


The obligations we assume


as a public university


determine many of our characteristics.
We have many more undergraduates than
graduates, we respond quickly to the needs of the
state's economy, we accommodate complex linkages
with other state universities and community colleges,
and we operate in cooperative symbiosis with our
state's media. We also experience an often too-close
interaction with the political process. Private univer-
sities do not respond in the same ways to these issues
and have a different profile. We, as a public univer-
sity, must maintain a close, continuous, and effective
communication with our many publics.


Comprehensive
This adjective recognizes the universal reach of our


pursuit of knowledge.


As a matter of principle, we


exclude no field from our purview. We believe tha
our approach to knowledge and learning, to under-
standing and wisdom, requires us to be ready to
examine any field, cultivate any discipline, and
explore any topic that offers insight or intellectual


tools. Resource limits, human or financial may
constrain us from cultivating one or another aca-
demic subspecialty, but we accept, in principle, no


limit on our field of view. Even when


we struggle


with budget problems and must reduce a program or
miss an intellectual opportunity, we do so only to
meet the practical constraints of our current environ-
ment. We never relinquish the commitment to the
holistic pursuit of knowledge.


Land-grant
Florida belongs to the set of American universi-


ties whose mandate includes a


commitment to the


development and transmission of practical knowl-


edge.


As one of the land-grant universities identified


by the Morrill Act of 1862, the University of Florida
has a special focus on agriculture and engineering
and a mandate to deliver the practical benefits of
university knowledge to every county in the state. In
our university, the Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences and the College of Engineering respond to
this definition most obviously, but over time, the
entire university has to come to recognize its commit-
ment to translating the benefit of abstract and
theoretical knowledge into the marketplace, where it
can sustain the economic growth that supports us all.
This commitment permeates the institutional
culture and defines us as one of some 72 such institu-
tions in America. The land-grant university is, of
course, a peculiarly American invention and captures
one of the powerful cultural beliefs of our country:
that knowledge passes the test of quality by remaining
vitally connected to industry and commerce.









Research
Research defines a certain type of university. Our
faculty must dedicate themselves not only to the
bedrock function of education, not only to the land-
grant function of service, but equally to the essential
activity of research.
By research we mean the effort to expand our
understanding of the natural world, the world of the
mind, and the world of the senses. We define research
to include the theoretical abstractions of the mathema-
tician, the experimental discoveries of the geneticist,
the insights of the semiotician, the recreations of the
historian, or the analysis of the anthropologist. We define
research to capture the business professor's analysis of
economic organization, the architect's design, and the

G GENERAL INFORMATION
.N


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


sion.


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
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


to maintain and enhance and 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


the M.D. degree.


The University of Florida College of


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, high


competent and responsible physicians.


The realization


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 Libera


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


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


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 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 privi


ege of asking fellow humans


to allow them to care for their health needs
their responsibility to maintain that trust.


and it is


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.








RESEARCH
Exploring new ways to understand health and
disease through biomedical research is an exciting


mission of any academic health center.


The commitment to education at the College is


high. This commitment is a criterion
and is a measure of academic success.


for employment
Efforts are made


to encourage and facilitate educational, personal, and


so>cia


faculty-student interaction. Recognition by


students that the faculty are concerned about them as
people is essential to a quality learning environment.


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

This building houses lecture and


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.


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.












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
component of the physician's time and expertise.
Sophisticated media and a more informed public
will continue the demystification of the profession and
people will be more involved in decisions about the use
of technology in their treatment, and the treatment of
family members incapable 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

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


in the first year of medical school.


The purpose of this


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


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-
tion.
Sixth, while meeting these expectations, physicians
will continue to be expected to provide the most
sophisticated available diagnostic and therapeutic care


when appropriate.


The ever expanding knowledge


base needed to provide such diagnosis and therapy
will require skilled information management.
Flexibility and creativity in the curriculum and
programs, and from the faculty and its sponsors, will
be needed to meet the challenges and opportunities

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.


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 they feel removed from the art of medi-
cine to the point in which satisfaction or gratification of
emotional needs cannot be achieved.
As a result, a cynical attitude may emerge toward
medical and patient problems, with a subsequent loss
of motivation toward learning.
The educational experience must help the student
achieve a high quality blend of humanism and science,
which will enable optimal medical care to be provided


to patients.


FLEXIBILITY OF
ADMISSIONS PROGRAMS
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.


The faculty strives to blend the art and


science of medicine into the College of Medicine's
programs.
Through careful planning, an effort is made to use
the fundamental knowledge of the basic sciences in a
meaningful relation to career goals in medicine.
Traditionally during the first and second years the
emphasis is on the sciences basic to medicine, but
clinical medicine will be introduced during the first
and second years. Advanced clinical medicine will be


the primary focus during the third year.


The opportu-


nity to advance in both fields in a correlated fashion
will be offered in the elective period of the fourth year.
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.


There is widespread


recognition that delay between scientific discovery and
its clinical application is too long and must be short-
ened. 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.









Junior Honors Medical Program
The junior i donors Medical Program is a combined
(seven year) B.S./M.D. 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
ears.
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 I lonors Program.


Although most applications are received from
University of Florida students, applications are accepted
from students from other colleges. Non-Florida


residents also are eligible to apply.

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. 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.

Medical Program and the application procedures may
be obtained by writing the Director, Junior Honors
Program, College of Medicine, University of Florida,

There is an early application process (April 1) open
to outstanding students of Florida State University,
Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University and
the University of West Florida. All legal residents of
the State of Florida may apply through the American
Medical College Application Service. Successful
applicants show evidence in their lifestyle of a commit-
ment to the service of others, as personal attributes are
an important factor in the selection process. The
premedical curriculum should include a course in
biochemistry.
Upon successful completion of the PIMS curricu-
lum, students complete the final three years of medical
school at the University of Florida College of Medicine.

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


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
students selected for PIMS begin their first year of
medical education in May, and the curriculum includes
clinical preceptorships with local primary care physicians.
The program is designed to attract students with a
special interest in primary health care, particularly
those who might desire to practice in medically unde-
served Florida communities.


Several hospitals in nearby


acksonville 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 sixty-eight


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 disciplines available in Jacksonville.









These rotations provide the opportunity to observe and
participate in the treatment of patients in a community
hospital setting and to become acquainted with the
many aspects of health care delivery in an urban area.
In addition to supervision by full-time faculty, the
student may have the opportunity to learn from
community-based practitioners.
Fifteen accredited residency programs are offered

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 relationship with the Nemours


Children's Clinic.


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
Clinic 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 Medi-
cine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Obstetrics/
Gynecology, has had community-based programs for


more than 20 years.


The rural component of these


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 implementing
more extensive community-based educational activi-
ties.
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.
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 participate in
community-based education and thereby brings much
needed skills to underserved communities.

students.









A basic premise of the community health programs
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.

degree at an accred-


ited university or college by the time of matriculation.
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 inter-
views 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 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. 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.


An undergraduate general biochemistry course is
strongly recommended. Students with one or more
semesters of undergraduate biochemistry find Bio-
chemistry and Molecular Biology of Disease (BMS
5204) more interesting and rewarding. For students
who desire additional background in science, courses
in genetics, microbiology and physiology 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 mathemat-
ics 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 opportu-
nities 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 activi-
ties 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 under-
standing of health care delivery problems and helps to
solidify the basis of the student's motivation
toward a career in medicine.

Medical College AdmissionTest
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


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
100216, JHMHSC, University of Florida, Gainesville,
Florida 32610.
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


application deadline.


The test is gi


ven twice yearly in


enrolled in the University of Florida.


This fee is not

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 MCAT, recommendations by premedical
advisors and teachers, and 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


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 applica-
tion materials, interviews with members of the Medical
Selection Committee will be arranged for competitive
applicants. These interviews are usually held on
Friday at the University of Florida College of Medi-
cine 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 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 interveiw.

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 semi-
nars and conferences. These are considered to be part
of the clerkship and attendance is expected.

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.


FOURTH YEAR


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.


Medicine









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. Students who rank in the lower third of
their class must have the approval of the Academic
Status Committee before applying for any externship.
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 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).


All Students are required to take Steps


and 2 of


the USMLE before graduation. Second year students
will sit for Step 1 prior to beginning the third year and
fourth year students will sit for Step 2 at the beginning
of the senior year.
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.


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-


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.

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.


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.


Students who rank in the lower third of their class
must have the approval of the Academic Status Com-
mittee before applying for any externship
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.

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,

Sexual Harassment Information
and Procedures
Sexual harassment is defined as persistent and
unwanted sexual attention from a person in a position
of authority or power. A student concerned about
sexual harassment by a member of the faculty or
housestaff should contact a member of the Student
Advocacy Committee or staff member in the Office of
Student Affairs. In all cases, every possible effort will
be made to insure confidentiality and to protect the
rights of both student and faculty member. If resolution
of a complaint cannot be reached informally, the student
will be advised about formal grievance procedures.

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 estimate the risk of the exposure and to recommend
prophylaxis should this be necessary.
Exposures which occur at other hospitals, such as
the Gainesville Veterans Affairs Medical Center,
should be reported to the appropriate staff of those
institutions.
Currently, Shands Hospital does not recommend
routine HIV testing of patients or healthcare workers.
When testing is medically advisable, it is subject to


informed consent.


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


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.

and Ph.D. Degrees


The educational continuum of the medical sciences
is designed to provide flexibility in terms of the type of


Programs Leading to the M.









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.
Interdisciplinary programs in "Cell Structure and


Function in Health and Disease


ate Specialization


"Vision Science


", "Toxicology Gradu-


", "Mammalian Genetics" and


are available.


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 also 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 under-
graduate 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.
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 program 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 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 is required before
matriculation into the Ph.D. portion of the program.
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 MSTP program. Normally the


student


's mentor will be chosen from members of the


seven basic science departments in the college of medi-
cine, but under special circumstances, other departments
in the University may be accepted as alternatives.
It is recognized that MSTP students in the first two
years of medical school will have received some training
in each of the basic sciences. Students in the program
will also be exposed to special seminars and courses in
human biology and clinical research which are incorpo-


rated into the program.


Therefore, the "normal"


course


requirements expected of graduate Ph.D. students by the
individual basic science departments will be waived and
only one core course, determined by the student's mentor
in consultation with appropriate members of the


student'


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.


department, will be required.









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
I 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)
certificate and have passed NBME Parts 1 and II, FLEX
or USMLE Steps 1 and 2.
For detailed program information and application,
the applicant should write the appropriate department
or contact the Office of Housestaff Affairs, Box 100371


JHMHSC, Gainesville, Florida


32610-0371.


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 111 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.


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.


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 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

Maude Halstead Rhodes Loan:


This fund was estab-


lished in 1987 to provide loans to third and fourth year
students up to a maximum of $3000 per year.


Federal Stafford Loan Program:


The Federal Stafford


Loan Program helps students meet the cost of educa-
tion by allowing them to receive low-interest loans
from participating commercial lending institutions
such as banks, credit unions, and savings and loan
associations. This program authorizes the guarantor,
usually the state's Department of Education, to insure
the lender for defaulted loans.
Each academic year, students may borrow an
amount up to their expected cost of education, minus
financial aid received from other sources, and minus


their expected family contribution.


The expected family


contribution is determined by using a federally approved
financial needs test. A graduate or professional student
is eligible to borrow up to $8,500 per academic year to
cover the costs of instruction for periods of enrollment
beginning on or after October 1, 1993. Prior to that date,
the loan limit is $7,500. (Eligibility for $8,500 will
increase beginning the Spring semester of 1994.) The
total Stafford loans graduate students may accumulate
may not exceed $65,500 including their undergraduate
borrowing.
The interest rate is variable with a 9% cap. Repay-
ment of Stafford Loans begins six months after the
student ceases to be enrolled at least half-time.









Federal Supplemental Loans for Students: A federal
loan that enables a graduate or professional student to
borrow up to $10,000 a year. The interest rate is vari-
able with a cap of 11%. Interest begins at date of
disbursement but payments may be deferred while in
school. Repayment of principle starts when the student
graduates, withdraws, or enrolls for less than half-time.
The total Federal Supplemental Loans graduate
students may accumulate may not exceed $73,000,
including undergraduate borrowing.
Additional information and applications can be
obtained from the Office for Student Financial Affairs,
S103 Criser Hall, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL

tions, or trust departments of banks.


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.

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
dissertation chair and committee and takes Advanced
Physical Biochemistry (BCH 6740) and two courses to


fulfill major departmental requirements.


The student


should also complete the qualifying examinations, ora
and written, which are administered by members of
the interdisciplinary faculty and the chosen depart-









ment. 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 teach-
ing, if any, will be determined by the individual
departments. For additional information write to


Director of Interdisciplinary Programs,
Medicine, Box 100215 JHMHSC.


College of


MAMMALIAN GENETICS
The Center for Mammalian Genetics offers doctoral
and post-doctoral training programs aimed at enabling
Ph.D. scientists to conduct successful, independent
research related to the molecular basis for human
disease. The CMG is a multidisciplinary, interdepart-
mental program, which emphasizes molecular ap-
proaches to the understanding of genetics. The CMG
faculty is composed of approximately 20 scientists,
with research interests in eukaryotic and mammalian
genetics, human genetics, cytogenetics, clinical genetics
and dysmorphology, immunogenetics, neurogenetics,
gene mapping, and quantitative genetics. Faculty of the
CMG hold appointments in the Departments of Bio-
chemistry and Molecular Biology, Immunology &
Medical Microbiology, Neuroscience, Ophthalmology,
Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, and Pediatrics.
The CMG houses state-of-the-art equipment and
computer core facilities for nucleotide sequencing, gene
mapping, and genetic data analysis. In addition, the
CMG has close ties to the core laboratories under the
direction of the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnol-
ogy Resources. This biotechnology center supplies
important resources and technologies including


oligonucleotide and peptide synthesis, DNA and
protein sequencing, hybridoma technology, and flow
cytometry.
The Graduate Program in Molecular Genetics, in
collaboration with clinical and basic research depart-
ments in the College of Medicine, offers trainees an
opportunity to relate basic research on molecular
genetics to the clinical arena, in studies leading to a
Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree. Post-doctoral and clinical
training fellowships are also available. Financial
support is available from the CMG, Pediatrics Division
of Genetics, and research grants. Application inquiries
should be sent to the Director, Center for Mammalian
Genetics, Box 100215 Health Science Center, University
of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, FL 32610-
0215, (904) 392-3054.


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 approxi-
mately 20 to 30 scientists and clinicians, interested in
elucidating 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,


interdisciplinary expertise provided by this faculty also
is used to address complex issues related to the protec-
tion 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 gradu-


ate programs involved in interdisciplinary toxicology,









as well as the variety of perspectives provided by their
disciplines, allows a great deal of flexibility in providing
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 depart-
ment. I)issertation research may be conducted either in


the student's department, or at the toxic
facilities located at the Center.

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 bio-
chemistry and related medical sciences, or with a
strong interest in academic medicine. An independent
interdisciplinary major in biochemistry may be ar-
ranged 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 laboratory. Enroll-
ment in BCH 4024 is a suggested prerequisite for
submission of a proposed independent interdiscipli-
nary 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 pro-
gram, only a small number of students selected by the
sponsoring faculty will be accepted annually. Applica-
tion should be made during the sophomore year to
enter the program during the junior year to the Depart-
ment of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
