Biography

My name is Reem S. Abu-Rustum, MD, and I attended medical school and completed my residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Florida College of Medicine. I returned to my alma mater in 2018 as an associate professor in the UF Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine within the department of obstetrics & gynecology and currently serve as the director of Ultrasound Education and Research. Additionally, I am certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and am a fellow of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM).

My clinical interests include ultrasound, specifically the first trimester fetus and the fetal heart, ultrasound education and global outreach. I co-founded and presided over SANA Medical NGO in Lebanon and served on two outreach missions to Sudan with ISUOG, where I was a volunteer helping in the sonographic training of various health care providers to ensure that pregnant women in various underserved settings have access to a properly performed scan. Here in Alachua County, together with UF students and physicians, I oversee the Equal Access Clinic’s Prenatal Night clinic, delivering care to our marginalized pregnant patients.

As a physician, my goal is to provide my patients with compassionate care and the most advanced sonographic assessment of their fetuses.

In my free time, I enjoy the outdoors and the performing arts with my family.
