The University of Central Florida (UCF) College of Medicine is a research-based medical school with a culture based on partnerships and collaboration. Located in Orlando within what is known as Medical City, the UCF Health Sciences Campus at Lake Nona now includes the medical education facility, featuring the latest in lab and classroom technology.

As a founding sponsor of the UCF College of Medicine, the Foundation donated a full  scholarship for one student of the inaugural medical class, which funded all four years of her studies from 2006 to 2010.

Established Partnership

It was the first time in the history of American medicine that an entire medical school class had gone through medical school at no cost. We attracted a class that was superb, unlike any class that a new medical school with no track record could attract. And it set us up for future successes. What a brilliant idea!
