We have excellent facilities for quantitative research including a data center with a state-of the art 32TB privacy-approved research server and a variety of billing record and clinical research databases.

UF Health, the largest fully integrated academic health center in the Southeast with all six health colleges on campus, allows broad interdisciplinary collaboration as well as access to a fully integrated electronic health record system.
