Dr. Randall Bertolette
As you may be aware, the founding dean of the FSU College of Medicine Fort Pierce Regional Campus, Dr. Randall Bertolette, passed away on October 22, 2020.
Dr. Bertolette had a private pediatric practice in Vero Beach from 1979 to 2007, and was dearly beloved by the children and families he served. This campus began in 2007 in the offices of the then Indian River Community College in Fort Pierce, with Dr. Bertolette, affectionately known as Dr. B, at the lead. He served as the campus dean until 2015, then continued to serve FSU one more year as the Doctoring 3 course director. Under his leadership, the campus established affiliations with hospitals and healthcare facilities all over the Treasure Coast and recruited over 300 physicians in all specialties to teach our students. We will always be grateful for his compassion and guidance.
