The siting and planning process of the Health Science Center attracted a number of visionary and
innovative individuals, who ideas and goals sometimes were far ahead of their time. In many cases,
their innovations have become the standard for administration, or practice. In others, it took
decades before the plans they hoped implement were adopted by a majority of medical, nursing,
and other health professional schools.







Legends and Leaders

Shands and Ralph Turlington with George Harrell (in earth mover) and UF President John Allen at the
ground breaking ceremony for the Medical Sciences Building in 1954. Cross, Turlington and Shands
were instrumental in bringing the Health Center to UF.

medical students that has become the
College of Medicine center for medical
humanities.
