There are six medical schools in Florida, located throughout the state. Florida has obvious advantages of great weather, relatively low cost of living, and no state income tax! All of this, among many other things, make Florida medical schools a great choice.
Five of the six Medical schools in Florida are public schools, meaning lower tuition if you are a resident of the state and a better chance of getting into the school if you are a Florida resident. For more on public vs private schools, click here.
Here is a list of the Florida medical schools with links to the school sites. Also provided is the school rank according to the US World and News Report for research, the average MCAT and GPA (if available), and insider info you will want to know.

University of Central Florida
US World and News Report Rank: Not ranked
Location: Orlando, FL
Average MCAT: 32
Average GPA: 3.8
Insider Info: This is a relatively new school, with the first graduating class being the class of 2013. Although it is a public school, about 1/4 of the class are non-Florida residents. This school gave its first class full 4-year scholarships with living expenses. Impressive! They are looking to build their reputation and so will offer competitive applicants large scholarships, including full tuition and living expenses (about $240,000!). I wish I would have known about this one!
