Biographical details

Doctor Faraz Pathan is a cardiologist and cardiovascular imaging specialist. He is currently the head of cardiac imaging and cardiac research in the Cardiology department at Nepean hospital.

He graduated from the University of New South Wales with First Class Honours in 2006. He has completed cardiology training at Nepean hospital and undertaken fellowships in cardiac imaging at Prince of Wales Hospital Sydney Australia, The Menzies Institute for Medical Research, Tasmania and the Goethe Institute for Experimental and Translational Cardiovascular Imaging, Frankfurt Germany. He subspecialises in non-invasive multi-modality cardiovascular imaging.

Doctor Pathan is active in clinical research and is currently completing his PhD evaluating the roles of advance cardiac imaging in managing cardiovascular epidemics. He is a lecturer at the University of Sydney. He has published in leading cardiovascular journals and presented at multiple national and international meetings. He has also been an invited reviewer for various cardiovascular journals.
