We are fortunate to have Dr. Amit Khosla join the Kelowna Cardiac Services team. He received his MD from the University of British Columbia and did his residency training in Internal Medicine at the University of Calgary before returning to BC for his General Cardiology Fellowship. He completed a further subspecialty fellowship in Advanced Heart Failure and Heart Transplantation at Stanford University. After initially practicing at Surrey Memorial Hospital, he joined the Kelowna Cardiology group in January 2020. He is now the Director of Heart Failure services for Interior Health and serves as the regional representative for the Provincial Heart Failure steering committee. Amit is involved in the design and delivery of the heart failure curriculum for the Undergraduate MD program at UBC and is a Clinical Assistant Professor with UBC.
Amit is passionate about improving heart failure care and patient outcomes locally and throughout the Interior. He initiated and currently leads the regional IH Heart Failure Advisory Committee which works with heart function clinics across IH to standardize and support HF care. He is also looking to bring more specialized HF care to IH with the development of a Cardiac Amyloidosis Clinic and further development and centralization of post heart transplant care for IH patients.
Outside of Cardiology, Amit enjoys spending time with his young family including his two and a half year old daughter and 2 week old son. He is looking forward to raising his children in the Okanagan and enjoying the outdoors.
