About Dimitry Davydow

Dr. Dimitry Davydow is a psychiatrist and is the Vice Chair for Clinical Operations in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Florida. Dr. Davydow completed his undergraduate and medical school education at the University of Missouri in Kansas City. He subsequently did an internship and psychiatric residency at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. After spending one and a half years on the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins providing psychiatric consultation and electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) services, Dr. Davydow joined the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington (UW). At UW, Dr. Davydow worked with patients with psychotic and mood disorders and provided psychiatric consultation services to primary care, critically ill, injured and organ transplant patients. Under the mentorship of the late Wayne Katon, MD, Dr. Davydow completed a National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH)-funded research fellowship program in primary care-psychiatry where he obtained a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree with emphasis in health services from the UW School of Public Health. At the UW, Dr. Davydow developed a multidisciplinary research program examining the bidirectional relationship of psychiatric disorders and cognitive impairment with functional outcomes and healthcare utilization among individuals with acute and chronic medical illnesses, resulting in over 60 peer-reviewed research articles and three textbook chapters published. In 2016, Dr. Davydow left UW to become the Medical Director of Behavioral Health services for CHI Franciscan, a large healthcare system in western Washington (WA) state. Prior to joining the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Florida, from 2019 through 2023, he served as a psychiatrist and Chief Medical Officer for Comprehensive Life Resources, the largest safety-net mental health service provider in Pierce County, the second most heavily populated county in WA.

Dr. Davydow brings with him to the University of Florida his passions for the development and implementation of mental health care services, teaching, mentoring, research, and patient care. He has clinical expertise in working with patients with psychotic and mood disorders as well as patients experiencing mental health problems after surviving critical illnesses.

Away from the University of Florida, Dr. Davydow enjoys spending time with his family, reading, hiking, attending concerts, composing music, and playing bass guitar.
