Faculty collaborate extensively with researchers at the University of Florida Health Sciences Center—the most comprehensive health science center in the Southeast—as well as with other departments at the University of Florida and at other universities. Another key partner in the Department of Health Outcomes and Policy’s research endeavors is the Institute for Child Health Policy at the University of Florida, a 26-year-old research institute that is dedicated to improving children’s health through rigorous science. Our research themes are broad and reflect the interests of faculty members. We are guided by the principle that optimal contributions result from a knowledge base that includes both depth and breadth of coverage in health outcomes and policy research, epidemiology, and biostatistics.
