About Angela Pham

Growing up, I was fascinated by the biology surrounding me and the intricacy of the human body. Once I realized I could meld science and human interaction through the art of medicine, it was a straight shot from there to medical school. As I tell my patients, my passion for gastroenterology lies in its important role in my patients’ lives. The GI tract is the first frontier through which outsiders have a chance to invade the body through the gut mucosa. Therefore, choosing a GI specialist is like finding a confidant that you will trust for life. Now, as an assistant professor in the University of Florida Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology & Nutrition, I strive to improve the ways we monitor the progression of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and to explore nutritional treatments for IBD. I treat my patients for various gastrointestinal conditions, including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, IBD, celiac disease, short bowel syndrome and intestinal fistulas.

My training began in East Lansing, Michigan, where I received my medical degree from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. Subsequently, I completed my internal medicine and pediatric residency at Grand Rapids Medical Education Partners with MSU in Grand Rapids. Following my residency, I relocated to Gainesville, where I completed my gastroenterology fellowship at UF.

I am board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in medicine and by the American Board of Pediatrics in general pediatrics. Currently, I am the principle investigator for Project ECHO IBD, which aims to create a virtual learning community through video-teleconferencing by combining didactic with individualized clinical case review. I am thrilled to be working on this program because it has the potential to disseminate IBD knowledge to expedite patient care and treatment.

I am also a member of the American College of Physicians, American Academy of Pediatrics and American College of Gastroenterology. Outside of practice, I enjoy many things: cooking with new recipes, kayaking and going to bookstores to find my next-favorite fiction.
