Educating the Next Generation of Health Professionals

Explore Our Majors


Currently, PHHP advisors (Rob, Andrea, and Tyler) are only meeting with first and second PHHP majors and UF students considering a PHHP minor. During advanced registration (3/21-4/7) PHHP advisors are available via zoom drop-ins and email. Please see the zoom drop-in schedule and instructions below to get connected to a PHHP advisor.

JUNIOR AND SENIOR PHHP majors: All students admitted to the upper division should contact their department staff or program director for advising assistance. Health Science majors may contact Dr. Moorhouse or Kendra Hamilton; Public Health majors may contact Dr. Dixon or Meredith Nappy; Communication Sciences and Disorders majors may contact Dr. Adams-Mitchell or Brenda McDonnell.

Zoom Drop-Ins are brief meetings (15 minutes or less) so advisors may assist as many UF students as possible before the end of advanced registration.  Zoom Drop-Ins are intended for items such as: clearing holds, dropping one course, registration planning for the immediate next semester, transient student questions, limited course advising, and questions about minors. 

To see an advisor during Zoom Drop-Ins, you must first sign into our advising lobby (link below) and then enter our Zoom room. Failure to complete Step 1 before entering our PHHP Advising Drop-In room (Step 2) will result in you not appearing on an advisor’s queue and therefore you will not be seen.

Due to the volume of student inquiries, Zoom Drop-Ins are for current UF students only. Non-UF students who have questions about our undergraduate programs should email

Zoom Drop-In Schedule:
Tuesday, March 21st through Friday, April 7th from 9a-12p and 2p-4p

Undergraduate Diversity Caucus

After the events that occurred in 2020— the COVID-19 pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, and specifically the call for justice for George Floyd and Breonna Taylor— the College of Public Health and Health Professions initiated the development of a platform that would make the environment at PHHP more safe, affirming, and supportive.
