About Shireen Madani Sims

My name is Shireen Madani Sims, MD, and my patients call me Dr. Madani. I am a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist and Professor and the Vice Chair for Education at the University of Florida Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. I am the Associate Dean for Student Affairs at the UF College of Medicine. Some would call me a “quadruple Gator” because I completed my undergraduate degree, medical degree and residency in obstetrics and gynecology at UF before joining the faculty in 2005.

My professional interests include general obstetrics and gynecology and medical education. In my clinical practice, I see patients for general and high-risk obstetrics and medical and surgical gynecology. My areas of interest include gynecological care of women with breast cancer and with hereditary breast and ovarian cancer genetic syndromes, abnormal uterine bleeding, postmenopausal bleeding, management of abnormal Pap tests, menopause medicine and minimally invasive surgery. Currently, I am piloting a program at UF that screens women for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer syndromes.

Throughout my career, I have been recognized as an outstanding physician and educator. I have been listed in “Best Doctors in America” annually since 2015 and have received multiple internal and national awards for my role as an educator. I serve on several national committees for OBGYN education, and Chair the APGO Undergraduate Medical Education Committee. I am a board examiner for the American Board of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. I have authored several test preparation books that are widely used by medical students around the country. As a physician, I want my patients to know that I value communication and shared decision making. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and travelling.
