Profile

Professor Girish Dwivedi MD, DM, MRCP (UK), PhD (UK), CCST (Cardiology), FESC, FASE, FRACP is the inaugural Wesfarmers Chair in Cardiology at the University of Western Australia (Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research) and Consultant Cardiologist at Fiona Stanley Hospital, Murdoch, WA. Prior to taking up this position in 2017, he was appointed as a Clinician Scientist (Canadian Institute of Health Research New Investigator) and Consultant Cardiologist at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute (UOHI), Canada. His background and training to date is unique and he is one of a few cardiologists in Australia who have advanced (level 3) multimodality imaging training. He has received accreditations in Cardiac Computed Tomography, Echocardiography, Cardiac Magnetic Resonance and Nuclear Cardiology including Positron Emission Tomography.
