The UF College of Medicine is committed to the well-being of all students. Along with the support students receive from their family and friends, there may be instances requiring additional assistance – especially from others knowledgeable about the process. The Office of Student Counseling and Development was established within the medical school to provide students with short-term, personal counseling, referrals for long-term therapy and/or expedited psychiatric treatment, and consultation regarding any form of mistreatment, discrimination, or harassment.  Along with providing students with timely access, confidentiality is of utmost importance.

Dr. Beverly Dede:

Please contact Dr. Dede directly to schedule future counseling appointments (email or 352-273-8383).  To expedite the process, please include the following:

  • Your name
  • Your status (e.g., Graduate Student)
  • Your availability (at least three dates/times)

At the Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC) we believe that the college years are a time for change, growth, inquiry, and development. We strive to help students learn the skills to cope with the stresses of change and growth so they are better able to learn and thrive after their time as a student is over.
