Dr. Bennett is originally from Miami, Florida and received his Doctorate in Medicine at the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine. Drawn by the rigorous clinical training, the vastly diverse patient population, and the cardiovascular disease research opportunities, he completed his internal medicine residency at UT Southwestern. Dr. Bennett then joined on as faculty to focus full-time on his translational research in electrophysiology in the Munshi Lab. He plans to pursue cardiology and electrophysiology fellowships to complete his clinical training. His interests outside of medicine include traveling with his wife, running, walking his dog, playing piano, and golfing.
