Rahul Rathod | Professional History
Dr. Rathod completed his medical school at Case Western Reserve University and his pediatrics residency at Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio. He also served for an additional year as Chief Resident. He subsequently completed his cardiology fellowship at Boston Children's Hospital, including serving as Chief Fellow. His cardiology training included a fourth year as Senior Non-Invasive Fellow. Dr. Rathod is currently a member of the Cardiac Imaging Division in the Department of Cardiology at Boston Children's Hospital performing cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) and fetal, transesophageal, and transthoracic echocardiography. As a staff cardiologist, he maintains a busy clinical practice as well. His research interests focus primarily on the use of advanced CMR technologies in predicting outcomes of patients with complex congenital heart disease. Much of his work is with patients with single ventricle heart disease (e.g. hypoplastic left heart syndrome) or with a Fontan circulation. He is the founder and Director of the Fontan Outcomes Registry Using CMR Examinations, which is an international consortium focused on improving outcomes in this population. In addition to clinical and academic pursuits, Dr. Rathod is dedicated to improving systems, processes, and organizations and serves as the Associate Chair/Cardiologist-in-Chief of Finance and Business Operations.
