The Ph.D. program at the University of Florida College of Pharmacy offers me a wealth of opportunities for interdisciplinary research. I enjoy the fact that I am footsteps away from my colleagues in medicine, nursing and the other health sciences colleges, and UF affords me the opportunity to collaborate with the amazing researchers in my college and beyond.
