Monica Ahluwalia MD, FACC received her MD at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School with Distinction in Research, and completed her Internal Medicine Residency, Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship and Advanced Heart Failure & Transplant Cardiology Fellowship at University of Pennsylvania, NYU School of Medicine and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, respectively, where she received the Baughman Award of Clinical Excellence. Dr. Ahluwalia is currently an Assistant Professor of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine and Staff Cardiologist at the Boston Medical Center Boston, MA where she is medical director of the Inherited Cardiovascular Diseases Program. She is also an Advanced Heart Failure & Transplant Cardiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA. Her current research interests include studying the use of machine learning to detect hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and develop enhanced risk stratification tools among diverse populations in collaboration with data scientists to help mitigate healthcare disparities. Outside the University, she is a member of societies including American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association and Heart Failure Society of America.
