Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Great material to work with. The administrators could create a more challenging program. Faculty is very accessible, can't say the same about the administration. We are a satellite campus so it can be difficult, but it feels as almost we are the neglected wing of the university.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoy the caliber of the teaching faculty and the opportunities offered to us in our Public health program. There is a great social community here as well, that makes going through tough classes a little bit easier. My only complaint is that the support staff can be sometimes difficult to get in contact with and there are sometimes scheduling and organizational issues.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of my graduate program would be that things are much more focused and hands on. Becoming a nures seems more of a reality. The only con would be the financial burden graudate students deal with. Overall, I know things will pay off in regards to my happiness and success within the near future.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

These graduate program is amazing with small class sizes and professors who truly care about their students. Team-based learning is incorporated into the curriculum which prepares the students for the real world. There is not much scholarships and grants available to the students, but many qualify for loans.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

I am currently on CNL (clinical nurse leader) track of college of nursing. Most of my courses are online and some of my classmates are distant learners. The greatest advantage of my graduate program would be flexibility. It is accessible for most of us at work. Some people may think that it is costly for online courses instead of going to class. However, the contents and the load of homework make no differences even though these are online lectures.The professors are very accessible if I have any questions and need helps. I really learned a lot and looking forward to do my clinical residency!

Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is A LOT of work, but it is doable. Faculty is very accessible for meetings outside of class. School has a lot of connections so you get some special opportunities throughout the program. Will feel very well prepared upon graduation.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that the program provides you with a diverse education and through an internship, prepares you for the work force. Some cons are that the program is experimenting with part online, part on campus hybrid courses. These type of courses are difficult to time manage and professors can require a lot of work.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The UF College of Medicine is an extremely supportive environment! Although the courses are challenging (like in any other medical school curriculum), I believe that the community of fellow students, as well as the wonderfully supportive faculty, dramatically ease the transition from undergraduate studies to medical school. The college is located within Shands Hospital (now UF Health), so there are countless opportunities for outside-the-classroom learning through shadowing. Additionally, we get hands-on interactions with patients from the get-go through our student-run, mobile outreach clinics. I can't imagine going anywhere else! For some, the city of Gainesville may be a bit of a drawback. It is a college town geared mostly towards the undergraduate students, but the College of Medicine is located on a relatively quiet part of the campus away from the undergraduate classes.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program is an intensive 4 year program and is rated the 11th best pharmacy program in the United States. The professors are nice and are more than willing to help students. The curriculum is tough and requires a large amount of work and dedication.
