This focus includes classic pharmacoepidemiologic and pharmacoeconomic work in areas such as drug safety and comparative effectiveness, as well as patient safety and program evaluation as related to medication use. We have excellent facilities for quantitative research including a data center with a state-of the art 32TB privacy-approved research server and a variety of billing record and clinical research databases.

UF Health, the largest fully integrated academic health center in the Southeast with all six health colleges on campus, allows broad interdisciplinary collaboration as well as access to a fully integrated electronic health record system. Our graduate program admits students each fall semester and we frequently offer fellowship and internship opportunities.
