Caldwell earned a Bachelor of Science from the University of South Florida, a Master of Science from the University of Notre Dame, and a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine from the former Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine. He completed a hospital residency at Florida Hospital in Orlando, Fla. Caldwell is certified by the American Board of Podiatric Orthopedics and Primary Podiatric Medicine and served as a Physician Executive Leadership Academy Fellow with Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

“I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to serve as the dean at the Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine. I look forward to joining the Barry University family, building upon its tradition of excellence and fostering the talents of its already accomplished students, faculty, and staff,” Caldwell said.
Caldwell brings a wealth of clinical, pedagogical, and administrative experience to Barry’s School of Podiatric Medicine. He succeeds Dr. Albert Armstrong, who is returning to full-time faculty status.
“I join the faculty, staff, and students of the Barry University School of Podiatric Medicine in welcoming Dr. Bryan Caldwell to the Barry family,” said Barry University Provost Dr. John Murray. “Dr. Caldwell brings a deep and rich portfolio of experiences to Barry.
