Ph.D. Programs

These five Ph.D. programs exemplify the collaborative infrastructure of the UF Health Science Center with innovative research opportunities and excellent faculty.

  • Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences

The Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences provides a predoctoral educational experience that trains experimentalists and scholars prepared for a wide range of careers in biomedical science. Students can choose from seven concentrations: biochemistry and molecular biology, cancer biology, genetics, immunology and microbiology, molecular cell biology, neuroscience, physiology and pharmacology.

  • MD-Ph.D. Training Program

The MD-PhD Training Program is at the interface of discovery and development where we are transcending individual disciplines for the “team science” paradigm. The goal of the MD-PhD Training Program is to enable scholars to obtain the best training in their intended research areas, while working closely with an outstanding faculty.

  • Medical Sciences, Health Outcomes and Policy

The University of Florida’s Ph.D. in Medical Sciences with a concentration in Health Outcomes and Policy offers advanced training in health services research and implementation and prevention science. Graduates are equipped to conduct health outcomes assessments and clinical effectiveness research in a range of biomedical, clinical and community settings.

  • Medical Sciences, Biomedical Informatics

The University of Florida’s Ph.D. in Medical Sciences with a concentration in Biomedical Informatics offers advanced training in computer science, health and medicine, biostatistics, data science and analytics, engineering, and research methodology to prepare students for academic and research careers in the growing field of biomedical informatics.

  • Medical Physics

UF’s Medical Physics Program is one of the oldest medical physics programs in the US, originating in 1961. The program is CAMPEP accredited for graduate degrees for both the M.S. and Ph.D.  While the program is academically housed in the J. Crayton Pruitt Family Department of Biomedical Engineering, the program is a joint effort of the College of Engineering and the College of Medicine.
