Dr. Farooqi is licensed and board certified in both pediatrics and pediatric cardiology. She completed her pediatrics residency and pediatric cardiology fellowship at The Children’s Hospital at Montefiore. She completed the advanced imaging fellowship at Mount Sinai in July 2014. During her imaging year, she gained expertise in transthoracic, transesophageal and fetal echocardiography and learned how to independently plan and execute cardiac MRI’s. From a research aspect, she gained interest in a new technique of creating 3 dimensional virtual models for patients with congenital heart disease. The computerized models she creates can be transformed into physical replicas using the technology of 3D printing. Given the lack of standardized protocols in the field of creating 3D cardiac models for patient care, she drafted a research proposal focused on this issue and was awarded the Glorney Raisbeck Fellowship in Cardiovascular Disease by The New York Academy of Medicine for July 2014-June 2015. In patients with complex intra-cardiac defects, this modeling is invaluable in pre-surgical planning. Dr. Farooqi received a B.S. in Chemistry from The City College of The City University of New York in 2002 and graduated with honors in research in Biochemistry. She was also granted numerous awards upon graduating including The Ward Medal / J. Birnbaum Scholarship in Chemistry and the Stanley and Rita Kaplan Scholarship. She subsequently received her M.D. degree from New York Medical College and was supported in part by a NYMC student scholarship and The Jonas E. Salk Scholarship.
