Biographical Sketch 

Martin Miguel Amor, MD completed his medical education at the University of the Philippines College of Medicine in 2009, under the special accelerated 7-year medical program (Integrated Liberal Arts and Medicine - INTARMED). He gained admission into this rigorous track straight from high school by ranking first in the national college entrance examination.

After a three-year stint as a medical educator at the San Beda University College of Medicine and the Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health in the Philippines, he pursued Internal Medicine residency and eventually became Chief Medical Resident at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, NJ in 2015. He then completed his General Cardiology fellowship at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, NY in 2018, and Critical Care Medicine fellowship at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, NY in 2019. In recognition for his work as an outstanding clinician, scholar, mentor, teacher and role model, Dr. Amor was inducted to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society during his critical care medicine fellowship year, being the first trainee from his program to gain this distinction.

A prolific researcher and academician, Dr. Amor has published multiple book chapters, case reports and research projects, which have been presented at local, regional, national and international conferences in the fields of internal medicine, neurology, cardiology and critical care medicine (ACP, AHA/ASA, ACC, SCAI, TCT, SCCM).

Dr. Amor came to UAB Hospital in 2019 with the objective of pioneering Critical Care Cardiology as a novel cardiac subspecialty. He joins the UAB Division of Cardiovascular Disease in responding to the increased acuity and medical complexity of patients receiving critical care at the UAB Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CCU).

Research/Clinical Interest
Dr. Amorís clinical practice and research goals are focused on the early recognition and treatment of cardiogenic shock, with emphasis on temporary mechanical circulatory support (MCS) and left ventricular unloading. His other interests include acute renal replacement therapies in the CCU, MCS for right ventricular failure, and critical care management following transcatheter structural interventions (TAVR, Mitra-Clip). He is also actively involved in advancing medical education in cardiovascular critical care.
