My name is W. Patrick Duff, MD, and I am a professor at the University of Florida Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I also serve as an associate dean for student affairs for the UF College of Medicine. Before I pursued medicine, I attended college at Harvard University and then earned a Master of Public Administration at the University of Virginia. Afterward, I changed career plans and entered medical school at Georgetown University, beginning a long service obligation with the U.S. Army. While in military service, I completed residency training in obstetrics and gynecology at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and fellowship training in maternal-fetal medicine at the University of Texas at San Antonio. I have served as a faculty member at three of the Army’s major teaching centers: Walter Reed, Letterman and Madigan. I completed my military service as director of obstetrics at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington, and retired from active duty, accepting a faculty position in the UF Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine.
Some of my clinical interests include amniocentesis, preeclampsia and eclampsia, fetal heart monitoring, folic acid and birth defect prevention, gestational diabetes, vaginal bleeding in pregnancy, miscarriage and stillbirth.
