Clinical Assistant Professor
About Mohammad A Z Al-Ani
My name is Dr. Al-Ani, and I specialize in advanced heart failure in the University of Florida Division of Cardiovascular Medicine and serve on the cardiac imaging team with a particular interest in multimodality imaging applications in the advanced heart failure population.
My fascination of the ability to help patients feel better is what drew me toward becoming a doctor. I consider this one of the most worthy goals in life. I am transparent with my patients and tailor their care to their conditions and values.
I earned my medical degree from Jordan University School of Medicine in Amman, Jordan. After moving to the United States, I found a home in Gainesville, Florida, where I completed my residency in internal medicine and fellowships in cardiovascular diseases and advanced heart failure at the UF College of Medicine.
I am an early career board member of the American College of Cardiology – Florida chapter, a fellow of the American College of Cardiology and a member of the American Heart Association as well as the Societies of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance and Cardiac Computed Tomography. I am also a CTSI KL2 scholar in artificial intelligence application in heart transplantation. In 2017, I received the Most Outstanding Research Award from UF’s Department of Medicine. Later, in 2019, I received the Carl J. Pepine Award in cardiovascular research.
I have gained experience in advanced imaging applications for patients in cardiomyopathy, which helps me better individualize advanced heart failure therapies. I am certified in cardiology, advanced heart failure, cardiac MRI, cardiac CT, echocardiography and nuclear imaging.
My research includes artificial intelligence in heart transplantation, mechanical circulatory support as a bridge to heart transplantation and quantitative imaging of cardiac sarcoidosis by cardiac MRI.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my two young boys, grilling and baking, cooking Indian and Arabic food, learning about automotive technology and swimming.
