Series 8c       University of Florida, College of Medicine, Educational Curriculum, Junior Honors Program

Physical description: 4 boxes (1.6 linear feet)

Arrangement Note: Material is divided into basic categories, chiefly letters of inquiry, general correspondence, program design and others.  The correspondence within these categories is generally filed in chronological order.

Agency note:  The Junior Honors program is an accelerated means of acquiring a medical degree.  Students apply in their second year of undergraduate education and, if accepted to this essentially highly competitive program, then they take “junior honors seminars” as juniors.  These are essentially introductions to medical topics taught by faculty in the College of Medicine.  Junior honors students then start medical school in their senior year of undergraduate education and receive their MD in seven, instead of eight years.  There are usually 12 junior honors students per medical school class.  The junior honors program at the University of Florida started officially in 1972.

Contents Note:  The collection is mostly correspondence from the Office of the Assistant Dean for Preprofessional Education.  It chiefly concerns the Junior Honors Program although there are some letters inquiring about other programs.  There also are some materials concerning the design of the Junior Honors program and information from medical student associations.
