Professional Development Program (PDP)

Our Professional Development Program (PDP) is offered to all students, staff and faculty at the University of Florida. 

At SHARC, our mission is to improve health outcomes and reduce HIV transmission among the diverse range of populations affected by alcohol and HIV. We aim to provide an opportunity for everyone to get involved with our mission by providing seminars, team meetings, mentoring and collaboration. 

We offer many opportunities and rewards through our Professional Development Program.
