Dr Tina Khan is a consultant cardiologist in preventive cardiology and cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging.
Dr Khan graduated from Auckland School of Medicine, New Zealand, with MBChB (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) and a Bachelor of Human Biology, before moving to the UK for her post-graduate career.
Dr Khan completed her junior medical and specialist training in cardiology with the London Deanery in numerous large tertiary teaching hospitals including Royal Brompton and Harefield hospitals, University College London Hospital and Hammersmith Hospital.
She was awarded her PhD from Imperial College London during which she conducted a randomised controlled clinical trial entitled “Clinical outcomes, Perfusion and Vascular Function in Patients with Refractory Angina and raised Lipoprotein(a), treated with Lipoprotein Apheresis” which she presented as a Late Breaking Trials Oral Presentation and Press Release at European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Conference in 2016. During her PhD she won numerous academic prizes.
Dr Khan completed her sub-specialty advanced training in cardiac imaging (CMR and echocardiography) and preventive cardiology. She was awarded an academic clinical lectureship at Royal and Harefield hospitals prior to securing her consultant cardiologist post.
