Biographical details

Harry Klimis is a Cardiology Advanced Trainee at Westmead Hospital (since 2015), PhD
student at The University of Sydney (estimated completion date 2020), Research Fellow at
The Westmead Applied Research Centre (since 2017), Honorary Fellow at The George
Institute for Global Health (since 2016), and Clinical Lecturer for the Westmead Clinical
School, University of Sydney (since 2017). Harry works in an environment with a strong and
growing program of cardiovascular disease prevention research led by Prof Clara Chow. Harry's PhD thesis focuses on novel clinical approaches for cardiovascular disease prevention including utilising text messaging, and the evaluation of Rapid Access Cardiology models of care.

Research interests

My main research interests are in mobile health utilisation in cardiovascular disease prevention, health service development, and advanced cardiac imaging in particular echocardiography and CT coronary angiography.

Teaching and supervision

I have clinical teaching roles both by the bedside and more formally in classrooms/lectures

Current projects

1. Mobile health technology in cardiovascular disease prevention

2. Rapid Access Cardiology (RAC) services to manage low to intermediate risk chest pain

Associations

  1. Research fellow, Westmead Applied Research Centre (WARC), Western Clinical School
  2. Clinical lecturer, Western Clinical School, University of Sydney
  3. Honorary fellow, The George Institute for Global Health
  4. Sydney Health Partners Advance Research and Translation Centre
