Dr. Singhvi completed her MD in Internal Medicine from Wayne State University, USA, after which she completed her DM in Cardiology from the University of Connecticut, USA. She has also completed a fellowship in Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology from Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center, Houston, TX, which is one of the largest transplant centers in the USA. She worked as an Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiologist at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, USA, and was recognized for her dedication to patient care by the Heart Failure Division there.
She is passionate about clinical research and has authored several peer-reviewed scientific publications and feels fortunate to serve on committees devoted to advanced heart disease and medical training. Her research interests include examining heart failure and post-heart transplant outcomes. She is determined to promote awareness of cardiovascular health, eliminate cardiovascular healthcare disparities, and improve the access of all patients to advanced heart failure therapies- including mechanical heart devices and cardiac transplantation.
She is currently working as a Consultant in the department of Adult Cardiology & Heart Transplantation at Narayana Institute of Cardiac Sciences, Bangalore, and has helped build the NH Heart Failure, LVAD, and Heart Transplant Care Center.
