Barts Heart Centre
Arjun Ghosh is a consultant cardiologist at Barts Heart Centre (BHC), St Bartholomew’s Hospital, and at University College London Hospital (UCLH) in London, UK. He is also an honorary senior clinical lecturer at University College London (UCL) and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
Dr Ghosh is the first cardiologist in the UK to be appointed specifically in cardio-oncology, and he helped establish cardio-oncology services at both BHC and UCLH. An average of 40 patients a week are seen using a one-stop approach with investigations at the same time as clinic review. Alongside the clinical service, cardio-oncology research (basic science, clinical trials and imaging-based research) is undertaken at both sites and there is a thriving educational component to the service with international fellows.
Dr Ghosh is actively involved in developing cardio-oncology guidelines and changing practice through the British Society of Echocardiography (BSE), British Cardio-Oncology Society (BCOS) and the British Cardiovascular Society (BCS). He is the educational lead-elect for the BCOS and a member of the Education and Training Working Group of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) Cardio-Oncology section. Dr Ghosh also runs the UK’s only national Cardio-Oncology Study Day.
Outside the interesting world of cardiology’s newest subspecialty, Dr Ghosh is involved in cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) and cardio-oncology echocardiography. He has several leadership and management positions at Barts Health NHS Trust, the BCS and the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM).
Following his multiple-award winning PhD in lifecourse cardiology from Imperial College, he remains active in a number of different cardio-oncology and artificial intelligence research projects and has published widely in the area. Dr Ghosh also holds an MSc in medical education from UCL and the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), and he has a number of local and national training and educational roles.
