Dr. Mufti graduated from medical school in the UK and received his initial medical training at Kings College Hospital in London.  After completing a Research Fellowship at the University of Michigan, he moved to the University of Chicago, where he subsequently completed his Internal Medicine internship and residency and Gastroenterology and Transplant Hepatology fellowships.  His is one of the transplant hepatologists at UT Southwestern and his main research interest is acute chronic liver failure, a rapidly growing field of study and one he believes UTSW will make important contributions to in the future.
