UF Health Colleges

The academic foundation for the Southeast’s most comprehensive academic health center.

The six health science colleges of UF Health provide the academic foundation for the Southeast’s most comprehensive academic health center. From the time of the health center’s founding in 1956, it has operated as a single academic enterprise dedicated to training a variety of professionals who go on to excel and lead in clinical care, science, teaching and community health.

Located at UF’s main campus, the Gainesville-based colleges of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health and Health Professions, and Veterinary Medicine offer the full continuum of higher education to undergraduates, professional students and advanced postdoctoral students. UF Health has emerged as a national model in interprofessional education.

At UF Health’s Jacksonville campus, the UF College of Medicine – Jacksonville is home to the fifth-largest graduate medical education training program, offering 37 ACGME- or CODA-accredited residency and fellowship programs and 11 clinical fellowships, as well as clerkships for third- and fourth-year medical students and physician assistant students.
