Morton A. Diamond, MD-Medical Director and Professor, Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Dr. Morton Diamond is a clinical cardiologist with nearly four decades’ experience in the education of medical students, physician assistant students, and graduate physicians.  Since 1994 he has been full-time Medical Director of the Nova Southeastern University Physician Assistant Program in Ft. Lauderdale, Fl.

Dr. Diamond has published many articles in peer-reviewed medical journals on the subjects of neurogenic orthostatic hypotension, echocardiographic diagnosis of congenital heart disease, and valvular heart disease.  He is the author of a medical review book and is a frequent lecturer at state and national medical meetings.


  • "Dr. Diamond has crafted what has been provided to a generation of students into a single book that will challenge, reassure and facilitate the student to develop a clinical problem solving skill set to begin their career. I applaud this work as an excellent tool that would benefit any student facing the transition from preparing for exams in the classroom to examination of a patient whose life may depend on a correct diagnosis."
