University of Central Florida College of Medicine

The UCF College of Medicine is an academic college of the University of Central Florida located in Orlando, Florida, USA. The dean of the college is Deborah C. German, M.D.

The college consists of a public medical school located on the UCF Health Sciences Campus in the Lake Nona neighborhood of Orlando. As of the 2009-2010 academic year, the UCF Medical School is the most selective medical school in the United States

History

On March 23, 2006, the Florida Board of Governors voted 15-1 in support of UCF's proposal to build a medical college. The medical college will constitute a new UCF medical campus that is being constructed at Lake Nona, located on the eastern edge of Orlando near the Orlando International Airport. Upon completion of the first phase, the base of this medical college will include a 113,000-square-foot (10,500 m2) building for the Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences, a 130,000-square-foot (12,000 m2) medical college instructional building and a 60,000-square-foot (6,000 m2) library.

In October 2005, a local Orlando investment company, the Tavistock Group, donated $12.5 million and 50 acres (200,000 m2) of land to UCF to help establish the UCF Medical School at Lake Nona, and issued a challenge to the Orlando community to help the university raise an additional $12.5 million to boost the total amount of raised funds to $25 million. This $25 million would be eligible for a matching state grant, thus giving UCF the needed $50 million to create the medical college. UCF received well over $100 million in donations, state-matching funds, and land value for the medical college's establishment. Lake Nona will also include a VA Hospital and Nemours Orlando Children's Hospital. The Burnham Institute for Medical Research and many other companies are also planning on building major medical research facilities in the area, with over $2 billion worth of projects beginning construction in 15 months
