About William E Winter

A native of San Francisco, California, Dr. Winter attended Santa Clara University as an undergraduate majoring in chemistry. After medical school at Loyola University of Chicago in Maywood, Illinois, Dr. Winter trained in pediatrics at the University of Kentucky followed by training in pediatric endocrinology at the University of Florida under Dr. Arlan Rosenbloom and Dr. Noel Maclaren. Dr. Winter holds medical boards in pediatrics, pediatric endocrinology and chemical pathology. He also is boarded by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry (ABCC). Dr. Winter is a fellow of the College of American Pathologists (FCAP) and a member of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry Academy (FAACC). Currently Dr. Winter is a professor of Pathology, Immunology & Laboratory Medicine, Pediatrics, and Molecular Genetics & Microbiology at the University of Florida. Between 1993 and 2006 he served as Medical Director for clinical chemistry at UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville, Florida. Dr. Winter directed the pathology residency training program for a total of 10 years through 2004. In addition to his duties as a clinical chemist, he directed the 2nd year medical student pathology course between 2004 and 2012. Following the medical student curriculum revision of 2012, Dr. Winter founded the following courses: the respiratory system, the cardiovascular system, kidney and the urinary tract, gastroenterology and hepatology, dermatology and the musculoskeletal system. and hematology. He taught in the Foundations of Medicine course, Fundamentals of Microbiology and Immunology, Introduction to Cancer Biology and Clinical Oncology, the Pain and Addition intensive, and Endocrinology and Reproduction. Between 2004 and 2020, Dr. Winter served as the course director for Dental Pathology in the College of Dentistry. As an NIH-funded independent investigator since 2000, he is currently Principle Investigator for the Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet Islet Cell Autoantibody Core Laboratory, The Environmental Determinants of Diabetes in the Young (TEDDY) Core Laboratory, and the Rare and Atypical Diabetes Network (RADIANT) Central Laboratory.

Teaching Profile

Teaching Philosophy
Dr. Winter is dedicated to teaching medical students, residents, fellows and colleagues basic concepts of “problem solving.” Knowledge of basic and clinical sciences provides a set of tools to accomplish “problem solving.” The more knowledge one has, the more “tools” that one has in their “tool box.” The challenge then becomes using these tools, together with the patient’s history, physical examination, imaging studies and laboratory testing, to arrive at a single diagnosis or set of possible diagnoses. The wonder of laboratory medicine is that laboratory medicine is applied, real-world, biochemistry, physiology and molecular biology. Therapy is then directed at aiding the patient’s own physiology in healing. Sometimes, invasive diagnostics or therapies are required. When possible, prevention will almost always lead to a better outcome for the patient. Quality of life is as important a consideration in health care as is longevity. Wisdom is the knowledge that comes from experience in guiding the patient’s care. Optimal health care is a collaboration between the patient and the health care providers. Health care providers and researchers who wish to improve the care of their patients must remain students for life.
