    In March 2006, UCF received approval to construct a College of Medicine at Lake Nona. The medical college’s has now entered its third year and nearly 200 med students are now enrolled at the college.  The college’s Medical Education Building opened in the Fall of 2010. The Burnett Biomedical Sciences Building opened in early 2010.

    According to a recently released study conducted by Arduin, Laffer & Moore Econometrics, this new college of medicine will create more than 30,000 local jobs and have a 10-year economic impact of $7.6 billion. The campus will include the Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences, a medical library and other UCF health sciences programs, capitalizing on the university’s strengths in biomedical sciences, modeling, simulation, optics and photonics, while fulfilling the community’s need to develop more physicians.
