Biography

Hi, my name is Dr. DeGroff and I work as a professor of pediatric cardiology at the UF Health Congenital Heart Center. After finishing a very rewarding masters of science degree program at Cal Tech in Electrical Engineering, I had an unrewarding early career start in electrical engineering until I discovered medicine was the career I realized I was looking for. In my early medical training I discovered cardiology was the medical specialty where I could most use my engineering skills. On top of that I always wanted to work with kids so Pediatric Cardiology was the perfect fit for me.

I completed my pediatric residency program at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Los Angeles. There, I was a committee member for evaluation of residents as well as the chief assistant to the director of the pediatric residency program. I then completed a pediatric cardiology fellowship at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland.

Now at UF Health I am the medical director of noninvasive cardiac imaging and affiliate faculty of the University of Florida Biomedical Engineering Department. I am a member of the American Heart Association and a fellow of the American Society of Echocardiography. I hope to offer cardiac imaging experience to my junior colleagues.

Outside of work I enjoy being active especially outdoors. My favorite ways to do this are through kayaking, biking, and playing basketball.
