Monday marked the first day of a four-year season for the 136 incoming class of the College of Medicine.
The first day of orientation for students from the class of 2014 was a busy one that began with warm welcomes from College of Medicine Dean Michael L. Good, M.D., and Joseph C. Fantone M.D., senior associate dean for educational affairs and Maureen Novak, M.D., associate dean for medical education.
The day continued with necessary activities to help the students adjust to the unfamiliar environment.
“We were given so much information today, it’s crazy,” said Jelisa Timmons. “I feel ready now to start classes after all that.”
The students’ first day as medical students ended with dean’s reception at the UF President’s House. It was an opportunity for each student to shake hands with the dean and meet faculty and staff that will play a major role in their next four years.
“Welcome to the team,” Good said during the reception. “You are now part of the medical team at the College of Medicine. It’s a great family.”
