Dr Wei Li studied at Peking Union Medical College, where she received her MD and a PhD at Imperial College, where she was awarded the Fielding Medical Scholarship.

Since then, Dr Li has acquired over 20 years’ experience in congenital heart disease and echocardiography. She is the clinical lead for echocardiography in adult congenital heart disease and for pulmonary hypertension at Royal Brompton Hospital.

For me, the patient is of paramount importance. Non-invasive echocardiography offers unique insights that help patients in their successful long-term care.
