Hi, my name is Jamie Beth Conti, MD, and I am a Professor of Medicine and Chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of Florida. Inspired to become a doctor by my father, Dr. Charles Richard Conti, Jr., I earned my undergraduate degree from Harvard University and am a 1987 graduate of the UF College of Medicine. I completed my medical residency at Emory University and fellowship training in cardiology and clinical cardiac electrophysiology at UF. I joined UF’s faculty in 1994 as an Assistant Professor of Medicine and have held numerous leadership roles since then, including serving 10 years as the Chief of Cardiovascular Medicine.
I am board certified in Cardiovascular Medicine. In 1999, I received the prestigious American College of Cardiology Proctor Harvey Teaching Award. In addition to my roles within UF, I have held leadership positions in the American College of Cardiology, the Heart Rhythm Society and the American Heart Association. I would like my current and future patients to know I will do my very best to help them achieve their goals.
My area of expertise is in implanted device therapy. My research focuses on intracardiac device implantation, pregnancy and arrhythmias, and psychological manifestations of ICD implantation. My studies have led to more than 100 published journal articles.
In my free time, I like to walk and bike, particularly on the beach. When indoors, I love to read.
