About Sharareh Sharififar

It has been my pleasure in my role in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Florida, to perform scholarship, teaching, and management activities. I have a strong background in research training, and I am a licensed physical therapist. I have a special talent for writing systematic reviews and performing meta-analyses. I have performed numerous complex human motion and clinical gait studies in populations ranging from pediatrics, spine pain, arthritis, athletically injured and at-risk groups for musculoskeletal and neurological injuries. I have experience engaging directly with patients and families and have accrued real life working knowledge of clinical conditions and how to manage them through various lifestyle approaches. My ultimate goal is to help people to make small improvements in people’s life every day! On a personal note, I enjoy throwing out parties on weekends with friends when my husband does most of the cooking. I love playing with my daughter in the evenings!
