About Amer A Belal

My name is Amer Belal, MD, and I am a transplant nephrologist and a clinical assistant professor in the University of Florida Division of Nephrology, Hypertension & Renal Transplantation. I treat patients with chronic kidney disease, acute kidney failure and those needing a kidney transplant. As a physician, my goal is to provide the best care for my patients.

I was inspired to pursue transplant nephrology during my undergraduate at UF, where I volunteered at UF Health Shands Hospital and observed surgeons participate in a patient’s final gift of life. I am a quintuple Gator having completed my bachelor’s in chemistry, internal medicine residency, and two fellowships in nephrology and transplant nephrology at UF as well. I earned my medical degree at Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine at Florida International University and completed a master’s in biomedical sciences from the University of South Florida in Tampa.

Beyond my clinical practice, I am passionate about medical education and mentorship. My research interests include transplantation, chronic kidney disease, acute kidney failure, cardiorenal and hepatorenal.
