Amisha Patel, MD, MS is a cardiologist specializing in coronary interventions and structural heart disease. She is a clinician-researcher with a special interest in the use of precision medicine to guide the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular diseases. Her research interests also include global cardiovascular health and evaluating the facilitators and barriers to cardiac care in the developing world.  She currently is principal investigator of a philanthropic/research grant that studies structural heart disease in pregnant women in underserved maternal health clinics in Hyderabad, India. Since 2017, Dr. Amisha Patel has been the principal investigator of a research and philanthropic project studying the prevalence of rheumatic heart disease in pregnant women in India. Screening echocardiograms are performed in prenatal clinics at government hospitals to identify the presence of structural heart disease. Those who are identified with an abnormality are then referred to a tertiary care center for further medical and procedural management, including balloon mitral valvuloplasty. To date, over 10,000 women have been screened free of charge and hundreds have been treated either with medicines or procedures. Results of the preliminary work have been presented at national meetings in the US and India.Dr. Patel received her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Michigan Medical School in 2009 and a Masters of Science in Clinical Investigation from Northwestern University in 2015.
