Welcome to the University of Florida Health Science Center Jacksonville. As you traverse our website, we encourage you to explore our sprawling campus and learn about the special mission for which we were founded in 1988—to comfort, to heal, to educate and to discover.

The Health Science Center is co-located with the UF Health Jacksonville Hospital. More than 1,500 UF faculty members, residents, fellows, students, administrators and staff work in our three colleges— Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy.

We excel in education, research and patient care that expresses our abiding values of compassion, excellence, professionalism and innovation. Our state-of-the-art medical center serves an urban population of one million from north Florida to south Georgia.

Like our sister campus in Gainesville, we offer a wide range of highly regarded graduate medical education programs, clerkship rotations, degree programs, world-renowned research and successful clinical services.

On behalf of the patients, staff, students and faculty it is my true privilege to share with you our superb record of excellence in clinical care, teaching and research.
