About me

Dr. Brown joined the Department of Psychiatry in 2015 as a Clinical Associate Professor in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. He serves as the Program Director for the Child & Adolescent Fellowship program 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. He went on to complete both his General Psychiatry Residency and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base/Wright State University (WPAFB/WSU) in Dayton, OH from 1999 – 2004. He was then stationed at Barksdale Air Force Base (Shreveport, LA) before returning to WPAFB to serve as the U. S. Air Force Fellowship Training Director for Child & Adolescent Psychiatry for three years. 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. He served as Medical Director for various child psychiatry clinics and was the Division Chief for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry during the last 2.5 years at UAMS. He returned to Gainesville in May of 2014, at which time he worked as a staff Child and Adolescent psychiatrist at Meridian Behavioral Healthcare before joining us here at UF.

Before reassuming the Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program Director role, Dr. Brown previously served as the UF Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Program Director (2015 – 2016), UF Division Director for Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (2015-2018), the UF Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship Associate Program Director (2016-2021), and the UF Director of Student Health Care Center Psychiatry (2015-2023).
