Before you begin your residency program at the University of Florida, you have to take care of some housekeeping items like moving! Make buying a home in Gainesville, FL first on your list so you can have plenty of time to settle in before the program begins. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer or not, there are a wide variety of neighborhoods for UF Health residents, close to or a short drive to campus, to suit your needs.
You will find that living in a college town has many perks – not only can you live within minutes of campus, but the university is in the heart of Gainesville close to shopping, dining, entertainment and recreation facilities. Many UF residents and staff prefer some of the neighborhoods located a short drive to campus like Longleaf or Haile Plantation.
Gainesville is a great place to live and have fun, check out some of the local attractions here. When you’re ready to find your home in Gainesville, give us a call, we’ll help you find the right one.
Don’t forget to stock up on Gator apparel, we take game day very seriously around here! Welcome to the Gator Nation!
Every year in mid-March, medical school students and candidates for residency all across the nation nervously wait for the arrival of the National Resident Program – Match Day. The day each student who applied to be “matched” to a medical university finds out where they will be continuing their education in residency in the fall semester.
The program uses an algorithm to match applicants with medical programs through a ranking process where the student and the university each rank their top choices following an application process and interviews and the program matches the institution with the student based on that rank. Each year, students find out on “Match Day” what institutions they matched.
