About Brittany S Bruggeman

Hi my name is Brittany Bruggeman and my patients call me Dr. Bruggeman. I work as a board-certified pediatrician and pediatric endocrinologist. I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Florida with my undergraduate degree in basic biology and medicine, with a minor in music performance. I continued at the UF College of Medicine where I completed my medical degree with honors. I subsequently attended pediatric residency and then an endocrinology fellowship at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital.

During my time at UF, I received numerous scholarly awards. Most recently I received the 2020 Douglas J. Barrett, MD Academic Fellowship Award that recognizes pediatric clinicians or researchers for displaying the highest qualities in research, teaching and patient care.

I am also a member of many professional organizations including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Diabetes Association and the Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet, an international network of endocrinologists at the forefront of Type 1 diabetes research.
