About Raj Patel

I am an assistant professor in psychiatry and work as an outpatient attending in the Adult Outpatient Clinic as well as the UF Student Healthcare Center. I received my medical degree at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine after completing an accelerated undergraduate degree at USF.

In medical school and residency training, I took a particular interest in working with young adults as well as in educating future generations of physicians. During medical school I was involved in multiple educational committees and continued to remain involved in educating medical students throughout my residency training.

I have special expertise and passion in treating depression, anxiety, ADHD and eating disorders. I prefer to integrate both medication and therapy into treatment plans and into each clinic visit.
