About Lauren Fanty

I received my medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Long School of Medicine, while at the same time receiving a masters degree in public health, with a focus in global health.

My clinical training began in 2016 with a yearlong internal medicine internship at the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio. I began a three-year residency in adult neurology at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centers department of neurology. During my residency, I also worked at the Boston Childrens Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

I came to the University of Florida in 2021, where I started a three-year fellowship in movement disorders under the department of neurology. I am board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. My time in this field has taken me across the globe, including study abroad scholarships to Zambia and Ecuador.
