Sahil Khera, MD, MPH
2018-2019 Fellow Talk Blogger
Sahil is a structural heart disease fellow and instructor of medicine at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (New York, NY). He completed his fellowship in interventional cardiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital/ Harvard Medical School (Boston). Born in India, Sahil studied medicine at the University of Delhi. After moving to the United States, he trained in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease at New York Medical College (Valhalla, NY) and earned an MPH from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Sahil has published more than 75 original peer-reviewed articles and has dabbled in blogging for the American College of Cardiology’s Fellow-in-Training (FIT) website. Blogging for Fellow Talk “will give me an opportunity to discuss and bring to light some of the most pertinent issues concerning interventional cardiology trainees,” Sahil says. The biggest challenge he has faced so far in his career has been “balancing a high-intensity procedural specialty with research and academia,” and the key has been having phenomenal mentors and a supportive family, Sahil adds.
