Welcome Class of 2024

Our Class of 2024 orientation will be here before you know it! We hope the following information will be helpful to you and alleviate some of your apprehension as to the where, when, and what is expected of you those first few days.


Please plan to be settled in Gainesville on the weekend of July 25-26, 2020. Our tentative plan is for Orientation to start on the morning of July 27, 2020 and to extend through July 31, 2020. More details will follow. (MASKS ARE MANDATORY)

Everyone in the College of Medicine and the Office of Student Affairs (your home away from home) is planning and eagerly looking forward to your arrival. Please feel free to turn to this office for assistance and assurance. Aid and comfort are available whenever needed!

We have compiled on this site information that all incoming medical students should know, and a list of requirements. It is important that you read all items carefully and ensure that you provide all documentation by the posted deadlines. Missing forms, fees or information could hold up your registration and matriculation!  All required forms are available for you to print, complete and return by mail or in person. We are unable to accept forms via email.

Because Orientation activities will take up the greatest majority of your time, we strongly urge you to plan to arrive in Gainesville in time to settle in before all the excitement of medical school begins. We hope you are having a wonderful and restful summer!

Orientation will begin on July 27-31, 2020 (MASKS ARE MANDATORY), with registration beginning at 7:30a.m. in the George T. Harrell, M.D.  Medical Education Building. Gentlemen should wear a coat and tie and women should wear comparable “business attire”; as we have scheduled a formal photograph to be taken.  Please see Orientation Program Class of 2024

Please use the Orientation CHECKLIST 2024 to ensure that all forms are turned in, all fees are paid, and deadlines are met. Please print it out for your use.  Please check periodically for updates. (MASKS ARE MANDATORY)
