“During my Ph.D. training at POP I was able to learn and apply advanced pharmacoeconomic methods for the evaluation of pharmaceutical products and healthcare services. Not only was I provided with great coursework and the resources from POP, I was also encouraged to use the broad professional network at UF to expand my knowledge on topics I was specifically interested in. My mentors in POP always found an excellent balance between challenging me and leaving me the freedom to overcome roadblocks myself. This has helped me build a valuable foundation for my career as a health economist.”
