My name is R. “Stan” Williams, MD, and I am a board-certified, fellowship-trained reproductive endocrinologist and a professor of reproductive medicine in the University of Florida Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I attended undergraduate and medical school at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. After graduating medical school with honors, I completed residency training in obstetrics and gynecology at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Following residency training, I served three years in the U.S. Air Force, where I became the chief of obstetrics and gynecology at Chanute AFB. I left the Air Force to receive fellowship training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the University of Louisville. I joined the UF faculty in 1988 and was chair of the OB-GYN department from 2008-19.
I am an active member of numerous medical societies, including the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, for which I served on the board of directors. I am also a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I was elected the 2011-12 president of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology and served on its executive board for 10 years. I have been elected twice as the president of the Florida Society of Reproductive Endocrinologists, serving as their founding president. I have also served on the board of directors of the South Atlantic Association of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I am the founding president of the Central Florida OBGYN Society. Since 1998, I have been listed annually in “The Best Doctors in America.” Since I have joined the UF faculty, I have been active in improving services for infertile couples in Florida. I provide clinical services and conduct research in hormonal actions, infertility and in vitro fertilization. I enjoy teaching medical students, OBGYN resident doctors and practitioners in Florida about the latest advances in endocrinology, infertility and in vitro fertilization.
When I am not practicing medicine, I enjoy playing golf, traveling, cooking and working in my yard.
