Ahmad Sami Chaouki, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics (Cardiology)

Focus of Work


I am interested in the diagnosis and management of pediatric arrhythmias. In addition to medical management of infants, children and adults with congenital heart disease with arrhythmias or inherited cardiac diseases, I perform noninvasive and invasive cardiac electrophysiology studies and catheter ablations.

Academic Focus

My research interests are focused on device management and optimization in the pediatric population. I am also interested in optimizing ablation strategies in pediatrics.

Clinical Focus

Clinically, I manage all aspects of pediatric arrhythmias. My primary interests are in implant and management of cardiac rhythm devices. I also perform electrophysiology studies and catheter ablation procedures for arrhythmia management.
