UCF, FIU Medical Schools Reach Full Accreditation
The University of Central Florida and Florida International University have received accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, the State University System of Florida announced Tuesday.
The designation allows graduates of those programs to be matched to residency programs as they advance in their careers.
State University System Chancellor Frank Brogan
Congratulations to the University of Central Florida and Florida International University for receiving full medical accreditation, an essential achievement for not only these two world-class universities, but for the generations of Floridians who will benefit from the skills of their graduates,
UCF President John C. Hitt
This achievement is a credit to the efforts of our outstanding College of Medicine staff members and faculty members. They are preparing our students for a lifetime of providing high-quality, compassionate care.
Accreditation also is a testament to the generosity of our Central Florida community. From government and health-care partners to volunteer faculty members and scholarship donors, many supporters stepped up to make this our communitys medical school.
Initially, many people questioned whether the plans for our College of Medicine would ever materialize, Hitt said. Today, our fully accredited college is part of a bustling Medical City considered by many to be the biggest economic game changer for Central Florida since Walt Disney World.

FIU can now move forward in providing a high-quality medical education.
We are well on our way to building a world-class medical school.
FIU President Mark B. Rosenberg
With this accreditation we honor the commitment we made to the Board of Governors, our governor and to the state Legislature to build a public state-of-the-art medical school dedicated to community health.
This is the most important milestone in the history of our College of Medicine and one of the most significant moments in the history of FIU.
