About our NICAP Internship

Our Mission

The Neuromedicine Interdisciplinary Clinical and Academic Program (NICAP) is one of the four ICAPs in the UF Health System. NICAP’s mission is to Achieve the Perfect Patient Experience. The NICAP internship is designed for graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Florida who are interested in quality improvement and patient care. Our team of graduate and undergraduate interns work with faculty, residents, and staff in Neuromedicine on Quality Improvement Projects centered around the Big Aims of Quality: Zero Harm, Reduce Variation, Perfect Patient Experience, Increase Value and Transform Our Culture. Though many of our projects have IRB Study Approvals or Continuing Quality Improvement (CQI) distinction and we publish our findings, this is NOT considered a Research Opportunity.

We Lead

Graduate students serve as team leaders, and are responsible for completing quality improvement projects that relate to their designated Big Aim team. They are directly supervised by the Director of Quality Improvement for the Neuromedicine department. Undergraduate interns are assigned various rotations, which include both clinic and administration rotations. Interns will have the opportunity to work directly with patients in care settings, gain exposure in health administration, and contribute to quality improvement initiatives. If you have additional questions please contact nicapadmin@ufl.edu.
