He serves as the Director of the Student Health Care Center Psychiatry and provides supervision to residents and fellows in the Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Clinic.

Dr. Brown completed his undergraduate training here at UF and received his MD degree at the University of South Florida.

During his tenure in the USAF, he also spent time serving his country at Keesler Air Force Base (Biloxi, MS) and was deployed to Afghanistan before separating in July of 2008.

As a civilian, Dr. Brown worked as a staff Child Psychiatrist at Halifax Behavioral Services in Daytona Beach for just under one year, before moving to Little Rock, Arkansas and joining the faculty at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) from 2009 – 2014.
