Amish Raval completed Internal Medicine/Cardiology fellowship training at the University of Western Ontario. He went on to complete an Interventional Cardiology fellowship at Georgetown University/Washington Hospital Center, Washington D.C. Following clinical training, he joined the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, National Institutes of Health, investigating Cardiovascular Interventional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Cellular Therapies.
Currently, he conducts cardiovascular clinical trials for cell and biologic therapy, and has additional research interests in developing improved interventional image guidance for complex catheter-based procedures. In addition to his research interests, he is committed to providing superior care to his patients.
