Ali Duarte-Garcia, MD, MSc

MS Student, Applied Clinical Informatics

Fall 2023 - Spring 2025

I am a rheumatologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I am originally from Mexico. I completed my residency in internal medicine at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts, and served as the Chief Medical Resident. Then completed my fellowship in rheumatology at the Mayo Clinic. My clinical focus revolves around the evaluation and coordination of care for patients facing treatment-refractory systemic autoimmune diseases, with a particular emphasis on systemic lupus erythematosus.

My research focus is on health services and epidemiologic research. My interests in informatics include optimizing and implementing electronic phenotyping techniques for systemic autoimmune diseases, enabling accurate diagnostics and personalized treatment strategies. Additionally, I am actively involved in streamlining clinical workflows for patients with complex and serious illnesses, ensuring efficient and effective care delivery.
