Dr. Anita Wokhlu is an Assistant Professor for the University of Florida’s Division of Cardiovascular Medicine.  She specializes in multi-modality cardiovascular imaging including echocardiography, cardiac MRI, and cardiac CT and has a special interest in their applications to patients with arrhythmia and structural heart diseases.

She obtained her medical degree at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and completed her internal medicine residency at Duke University Medical Center.  She remained at the Duke Cardiovascular Medical Research Center to complete an additional year of training and research in cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).  She completed her cardiovascular fellowship at Mayo Clinic Rochester, MN.  There, she underwent advanced training in echocardiography with special attention to structural and valvular heart disease and completed additional fellowship training in cardiac electrophysiology.  At Mayo, she was promoted to Assistant Professor of Medicine.  She subsequently acquired advanced cardiac computed tomography (CT) skills prior to joining cardiology faculty at University of Florida in 2013.
