Established in 2006, the UCF College of Medicine is one of the first U.S. medical schools in decades to be built from the ground up. As a new medical school, UCF’s program epitomizes innovation, high-tech learning tools and a pioneering spirit to educate young doctors and scientists in a new and better way for the 21st century. The college is an integral part of the growing medical city at Lake Nona. The UCF Health Sciences Campus at Lake Nona now includes the medical school’s new 170,000-square-foot medical education facility, featuring the latest in lab and classroom technology, as well as its new 198,000-square-foot Burnett Biomedical Sciences building.
