About Irene A Malaty

Dr. Malaty completed medical school at Indiana University School of Medicine before completing neurology residency and movement disorders fellowship at the University of Florida. She devotes her practice to clinical care, research, and education across the movement disorders spectrum. She specializes in the care of Parkinson disease (PD) and is director of a Parkinson Foundation Center of Excellence at UF. She also specializes in Tourette syndrome (TS) in patients of all ages and is director of the Tourette Association of America Center of Excellence at UF. Additionally, she has an active botulinum toxin injection practice treating diverse neurological disorders. Across these key components of her specialty, she takes time to care for individuals with complex motor and non-motor symptoms in a comprehensive manner.

Dr. Malaty has been awarded several teaching awards including University of Florida College of Medicine Exemplary Teacher award and the Clinical Educator of the Year award. She has also been recognized for her expert clinical care with a University of Florida College of Medicine Clinical Outpatient Excellence Award. She has enjoyed lecturing nationally and internationally.

Dr. Malaty is a primary investigator in a number of trials in movement disorders and helps direct the movement disorder trials at UF. As an example, she is leading research at UF to investigate outcomes of varied care in Parkinson patients as part of an international collaboration. She has authored multiple publications and chapters in movement disorders.

In 2017, Dr. Malaty became the first female president of the Florida Society of Neurology, on the 50th anniversary of that organization. She aspires to advocate for improved care and education in neurological disorders through this role and in her national position on the movement disorders subsection of the American Academy of Neurology (AAN). She was selected for the inaugural class of the prestigious Women Leading in Neurology program of the AAN and will continue to devote time and effort to improving the lives of individuals living with neurological disorders.
