Amr Youssef, MBBCh
Amr Youssef, MBBChAfter his graduation from Ain Shams university in Egypt with first-class honors, Dr. Amr Youssef had an extensive training in cardiology that led to a master’s and doctoral degrees in cardiovascular medicine. Before coming to the US to pursue further training, Dr. Youssef used to work as an assistant professor of cardiology at the same university from which he graduated.

Dr. Youssef’s long track record in research started early in his career as a part of the master’s and doctoral degrees that he completed in Egypt. His 2 years as a cardiology post-doctoral research fellow at Johns Hopkins was a significant landmark in his career, which led to multiple publications in major cardiology journals like Circulation and Journal of American College of Cardiology (JACC). His research focused on the fate of transplanted stem cells into animal models of myocardial infarction, and their overall effects on cardiac function and infarct size. His work at Hopkins as a radiology visiting scientist focused on using a novel MRI technique to quantify the right ventricular regional function and strain.

We see Dr. Youssef as an outstanding general cardiology fellow with enormous fund of knowledge. His passion, energy, and sense of humor are a great source of joy and contentment, he continues to act as a role model for perseverance and determination in our program.
