The UF Health Web Directory contains information on all UF Health-related persons, regardless of their location or affiliation. This includes faculty, staff and students for UF, as well as staff at UF Health Shands (and related hospitals), and UF Health Jacksonville

The directory contains powerful search capabilities, along with the ability to easily update and manage most of your profile information (after logging in).

Searching the Directory

Use the big search box on the homepage by typing inside of it. You can search by someone’s name, or enter a topic / keyword to search for.

Search tips:

  • You can enter partial names (such as “car mor”) to find results matching the beginning of someone’s first name and the beginning of their last name.
  • As you type more letters, the available results will continue to refine – click on someone’s name when you find a result you want to see more information on.
  • When entering a keyword / topic in the search box, you may be presented with the option of selecting either “Clinician’s Profiles” or “Researcher’s Profiles” results in your search. These combination filters will allow you to see a list of people with that term listed in their profile.


 Advanced searching and filters

For even more power, click on the ‘Search’ button (or hit Enter on your keyboard) after you’ve entered your search term or name to expand your results.

On the left-hand side of the search results are the advanced search filters. These filters allow you to filter within specific areas of the profile. For example, the “Working Titles” filter will allow you type in a title (such as Professor) and find only those individuals within your results that have set that title.

By default, each filter will attempt to display the 5 most relevant terms for that area. You can then add them to the filter by clicking on the small blue circle with the plus sign in the middle.

As you add and/or remove search terms from each filter the search results will automatically update.

How to Update My Profile

You can update your profile information by clicking on the Log In button located in the upper right-hand corner of the window. The website will ask you to login using either your Gatorlink ID and password, or your Shands ID and password. Once you are logged in, the site will redirect you to your profile where you can begin updating your profile.

Profile Fields

Editable fields will be marked with a small plus sign or pencil icon that you can click on to edit that field. As you edit and save each field, your directory profile will be updated. In some cases, you will not be able to directly edit a field within the directory. If this happens, instructions will be provided to help you make those updates.

Profile Photos

Profile photos are integrated into The Bridge profiles for users and on profiles for UF Health providers. If you would like to get a professional portrait taken for free (to UF Health faculty and staff only), you can view the open studio hours here.

Additional Positions

Users can display all of their past and currently held positions in their profile by clicking on the title text under the name, or scrolling to the “Additional Positions” heading below the biography field.

Teaching Profile

The Teaching Profile is a section of a faculty member’s directory profile where they can post a short description of their teaching philosophy and manage a list of course taught in the past to help students, colleagues, and other interested parties find syllabi and description of the course. Courses taught are imported into a profile automatically from UF’s course management systems.


Publications for directory profiles can be updated directly through the profile page. They can be automatically added one-at-a-time or in a group using a PubMed ID or DOI number. If you’d like to add the publication manually, this option is available, as well. Publications added to a profile through the VIVO system will remain on the profile.


Below the list of publications, you can add a list of your presentations to your profile.
