About Michelle E Jacobs-Elliott

Dr. Jacobs-Elliott began her academic career by receiving a Bachelor of Science degree from Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University in Tallahassee, Florida. She then pursued a Medical Degree at the University of Miami School of Medicine in Miami, Florida. After graduating from the University of Miami, she completed her psychiatry residency, as well as a Child and Adolescent Psychiatry fellowship at the University of Florida. She currently works at the Student Health Care Center as a staff Psychiatrist.

Recently, Dr. Jacobs-Elliott was co-chair of a search committee for a Counseling and Wellness Center Psychiatrist position. She has also participated in various presentations on topics such as Depression in African American Women, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Mental Health Issues for Women. She plans to continue these in the future. Dr. Jacobs’s involvement with the Minority Mentors Program for the university has given her an opportunity to meet with undergraduate freshmen students as well as other university professors and staff from various departments. Due to these contacts she has also done some consulting with a member of the College of Nursing. In the future she plans to continue her service to the university by becoming involved with the admissions process for the University of Florida College of Medicine.
