Integral to the University of Florida’s Health Science Center, the Department of Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy offers a unique blend of research and training in patient safety, pharmacoepidemiology, pharmacoeconomics, and social-behavioral issues surrounding medication use.
Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy offers a broad spectrum of opportunities for training, including a residential PhD and a residential MS program, for students in the health and related sciences. Students can choose between several specialty areas and have the opportunity to immerse themselves in research early in their training with ongoing faculty research programs.
The Ph.D. degree provides individuals with the credentials to develop and direct clinical research units in universities, pharmaceutical companies and contract research organizations, and government organizations. Successful graduates have a range of technical and disciplinary competencies in research design, measurement, inferential statistics, the communication and evaluation of research, research ethics, healthcare delivery and the medication use system, the drug product, and behavioral and policy issues surrounding medication use. Those successful graduates of the residential MS degree who have a desire to continue their studies can apply for the Ph.D. program, with MS course work and other scholastic requirements applicable.
The Department has excellent facilities for quantitative and qualitative research, and faculty have been highly successful in attracting extramural research support. Qualitative research infrastructure includes conference facilities with state-of-the art equipment for focus groups or patient interviews. Quantitative research facilities include computer labs for students, a department-owned secure research server that houses various population-based datasets, and a variety of software packages.
