Transportation Requirement

As part of the UF COM medical education program, students will rotate at various inpatient and outpatient settings. Early clinical exposures begin the first semester of medical school and can involve daily commutes of up to 45 miles. During the 3rd and 4th years of medical school, clinical requirements can occur outside public transportation hours. Therefore, in order to fulfill the clinical objectives and experiences within UF Health (Gainesville and Jacksonville*), Wolfson Children’s Hospital, Department of Veterans Affairs, and associated clinics within those entities, students are required to own or have access to reliable personal transportation.

*Students spend an average of 1/3 of their clinical rotations in Jacksonville.
