Office of Research > Research Presentations

The USF Health Office of Research has sponsored the Annual USF Health Research Day each year. For two decades, student, faculty and staff researchers representing the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing and Public Health have displayed their work for fellow researchers to review and for faculty judges to critique. College of Public Health students participate and present their research projects each year during USF Health Research Day.  This event provides an opportunity for students to showcase their research and earn recognition and awards for their scholarly accomplishments.

On occasion, the College of Public Health also has coordinated college-level research events.

Below are links to past Research Presentation events.

Student Research Podcasts (SHARP)

This section contains links to podcasts created by COPH students pertaining to their recent experiences at conferences. Each of these students are recipients of the COPH 's Student Honorary Award for Research and Practice "SHARP" , which provides financial assistance for COPH students to travel to a local, state, regional, national, or international professional meeting/conference to present their research or practice.

***All presentations are posted as podcasts on the USF College of Public Health iTunesU.
