Biographical details

Dr Rebecca Kozor is a clinical cardiologist and non-invasive imaging specialist, with particular expertise in cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). She is also an active cardiovascular researcher.

She obtained her medical degree at the University of New South Wales in 2006, and completed her cardiology specialty training as well as a 18 month imaging fellowship at Royal North Shore Hospital in 2014. Rebecca did her PhD with the Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging Group at the Kolling Institute, University of Sydney, examining the evolving applications of CMR in clinical cardiology to improve diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac disease. Rebecca also completed a 12 month CMR clinical research fellowship at Barts Heart Centre, London, United Kingdom in 2015. These led to many publications in leading peer reviewed scientific journals, and being awarded a couple of major grants to continue research in the field of CMR and cardiology with national and international collaborators.
