Internship Programs & Summer Research

Faculty in the Department of Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy offer research internship experienced for individuals who are interested in pursuing further training in our field. Typically, internships are pursued by students or graduates of the health sciences or research-related fields (e.g., epidemiology, biostatistics, economic) who consider an advanced (M.S. or Ph.D.) degree and would like to get first-hand experience about the type of research conducted in POP. Internships are usually at a minimum three months to allow the intern participation in a small research project, which should result in an abstract that can be presented at a professional meeting.

  • For students in the UF Pharm.D. program, the college offers competitive funding for a summer research internship. Information about this opportunity and how to apply is provided here.
  • For German pharmacy graduates and other international pharmacy graduates/students who would like to complete part of their practicum required for licensure with us, further information is provided here. Applicants will need to provide a statement of intent, CV, letters of recommendation and proof of financial support.
  • For everyone else who is interested in further information, please contact Lorna Chorba, lchorba@cop.ufl.edu with any questions.
