College Deans

From the time of the academic health center’s founding in 1956, it has operated as an academic enterprise dedicated to training a variety of professionals and to introducing knowledge that will safeguard the health of Florida’s citizens.

UF Health encompasses the Gainesville-based colleges of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health and Health Professions and Veterinary Medicine; the UF Health Shands family of hospitals; and the UF Health Jacksonville medical center and academic campus, which offers graduate education programs in medicine, nursing and pharmacy, and UF Health North. The colleges teach the full continuum of higher education from undergraduates to professional students to advanced postdoctoral students. Together with clinical programs and services across all six colleges, UF Health is helping to create Florida’s future health care workforce.
