Dr. Khalili received his medical degree from UT Southwestern Medical Center. After completion of his internal medicine residency, he stayed on for additional training in cardiovascular medicine. Given strong interest in coronary and valvular heart disease, he completed an additional year of training in interventional cardiology at UTSW, and a year of structural heart disease training at the prestigious William Beaumont Hospital in Michigan. Dr. Khalili brings to UTSW a strong background in complex percutaneous coronary interventions, valvular heart disease, and structural heart disease interventions.
