Division of Health Affairs

The Division of Health Affairs at the College of Medicine is engaged in teaching, research, and service in the areas of health policy, public health, and health services research covering a broad range of topics. The Division is led by Leslie Beitsch, M.D. who oversees the Division's six Centers. The work of each Center focuses on a specific area but takes a multidisciplinary approach to accomplish its goals. Experts from each of the Centers work together and with other interested university academic units, organizations, and associations on a number of projects affecting our community, Florida, and the nation.
