Inaugural class of UCF med school

Today, the University of Central Florida (UCF) began coursework for its inaugural class in its College of Medicine. In all, 41 students will begin their journey towards their Doctor of Medicine (MD) degrees. Today, the students took-part in the traditional first-year medical student white coat ceremony with Cecil Wilson, the President of the American Medical Association (AMA), in-attendance. For a first for any University in the United States, All 41 UCF medical students will receive an entirely free medical education, which usually carries a mean pricetag of $120,000. Congratulations to these students! They will all be amazing examples of just how much “UCF Stands for Opportunity.”
