Which program is right for you?

  • The graduate certificate is for research coordinators, faculty and health care professionals, including health care administrators, clinicians, residents and medical fellows. The certificate provides foundational knowledge for understanding, designing and evaluating health care research as well as providing students with a broad-based knowledge of health care research as a field. The certificate is ideal for students and professionals who are interested in learning more about health outcomes research but do not have the time or desire to commit to a full graduate degree.
  • The on-campus master’s in medical science degree is for graduate students and medical professionals who are interested in pursuing a career in health outcomes research or who would like to complement their clinical practice or other research interests with the breadth of knowledge required to design, implement and interpret large-scale studies of health care programs.
  • The on-campus doctoral program constitutes an advanced degree in research design and implementation methodologies for those interested in pursuing a career in health outcomes and policy, translational science and health care research. Graduates of the doctoral program will have expertise in the statistical analysis methods used in health care research, research design and clinical effectiveness and will be prepared for careers in implementation science both in academia and the private sector.

Each of these programs takes advantage of the wealth of collaboration and interdisciplinary research at UF Health, the most comprehensive academic health center in the Southeast.
