The regional medical campus will allow UF students to develop more familiarity with Jacksonville faculty members and will eliminate the need for them to travel back and forth between Gainesville and Jacksonville. The campus will also give students greater exposure to diverse patient populations while strengthening their understanding of social determinants of health.
The regional medical campus designation has been in the works for the past several years. Plans are for cohorts to ultimately include at least 25 full-time students per academic year.
