University of Florida
Gainesville, FL

Contributing to the University of Florida’s reputation as a leader in health professions is the nationally ranked audiology program. UF is one of the first institutions to offer the Doctor of Audiology degree both on-campus and through distance learning in order to serve both traditional students and working professional audiologists. Students attending classes on the Gainesville campus benefit from access to state-of-the-art equipment and well-known healthcare facilities, including the speech and audiology center at Shands Hospital. Off-campus students receive instruction through a combination of real-time lectures with the course instructor via online chat room, recorded lectures, virtual clinics, traditional readings, Internet postings, and online discussion groups and chat rooms. During spring break, audiology students have the opportunity to travel with faculty to the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico to provide free hearing healthcare to the underprivileged. In addition to the Doctor of Audiology program – which focuses on training professionals who can serve individuals and communities in the detection, prevention, diagnosis, and management of hearing and balance disorders – UF also offers a Ph.D. in audiology and speech-language pathology that educates students to become researchers.

Nova Southeastern University offers 84 Healthcare degree programs. It's a very large, private not-for-profit, four-year university in a large suburb.

Imagine yourself helping a teen with diabetes set a personal wellness goal, or teaching a medical team vital infection control practices. These are the kinds of lasting impacts you could make with a USF public health degree. Since public health is a diverse field, students can tailor their study to their interests. For example, want to develop health promotion programs? Then declare a minor in health education. USF students can also experience firsthand how health systems operate in other countries. You could spend a week in Panama visiting medical, nutrition, and social services agencies with some of your classmates. Or, get involved in cutting-edge research. Faculty in the College of Public Health conduct community-based research projects on important issues like disease prevention. In 2015 two students won an award at the American Public Health Association Meeting for their study of disparities in up-to-date colorectal cancer screenings. Study public health and you can do more than just create awareness—you may also save lives.
