Rotations are offered to medical and physician assistant students from the UF College of Medicine in Gainesville, as well as students from other medical schools. They not only take advantage of excellent educational experiences, but also have opportunities to learn more about our many residency training programs. In the most recently completed main residency match in March, 42% of individuals who matched at the College of Medicine – Jacksonville had completed at least one student rotation here.
The end of the academic year is a time for celebration. Our fourth-year medical students graduated May 18 and are moving into the next phase of their education as resident physicians. This graduating class selected the department of anesthesiology to receive the Golden Apple Award in Clinical Sciences as the best clinical teaching department in Gainesville and Jacksonville.
Also, our clinical-year physician assistant students graduated June 22. They are now eligible for full licensure and can enter practice in a variety of specialties.
