Chair’s Message

Jamie B. Conti, MDWelcome to UF Health’s Department of Medicine!

As a graduate of the University of Florida’s Medical School, the Cardiovascular Diseases and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship Programs and a faculty member for over 25 years, I’ve experienced firsthand the Department of Medicine’s dedication to preparing its physicians to consistently and effectively address the needs of our patients.

The UF Department of Medicine has over 300 faculty members in 11 divisions and provides clinical care for a large population of patients. We are home to several major research centers including the UF Center for the Advancement of Research in Medicine (CARMED), the Clinical and Translational Research Institute, the Center for Inflammation and Mucosal Immunology, the UF Health Integrative Medicine Program, the Cell Therapy Research Network and the Institute of Therapeutic Innovation.

In December of 2017, we opened a new tower encompassing UF Health Heart and Vascular Hospital and UF Health Neuromedicine Hospital. Our commitment – to be the best academic health center in the Southeast and beyond – is a driving force for building world-class facilities that thoughtfully integrate the latest innovations in medical technology and hospital design with the collective expertise of UF Health.

Additionally, UF Health is nationally ranked by US News and World Report in six adult medical specialties, including endocrinology, gastroenterology, geriatrics, nephrology, neurology and pulmonology.

Education is a pillar of our Department.  We host 117 internal medicine residents, 4 chief residents and 90 fellows in fellowship programs across our Department, with extensive research and patient care opportunities for each fellow.  We are committed to the creation of new programs as our scope and depth of practice expand.  Whether in clinic, on an inpatient service or in the lab, learners are a crucial part of our daily operations.

The University of Florida is very fortunate to have access to remarkable technologies and minds, which make both our clinical teaching and patient care programs extraordinary. Explore our website and discover how the UF Department of Medicine can serve you!
