Dr. Hari Narayan is a board-certified pediatric cardiologist at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and an assistant professor at UC San Diego School of Medicine.

He specializes in echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.

Dr. Narayan earned his Bachelor of Arts in genetics at Rutgers University and his medical degree at Cornell University Medical College. He completed his pediatric residency training at the Children's Hospital of New York-Presbyterian at Columbia University, followed by a pediatric cardiology fellowship and advanced fellowship training in echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. During his fellowship, Dr. Narayan was a recipient of a National Institutes of Health T32 training grant award and enrolled in the Masters of Science in Clinical Epidemiology Program at the University of Pennsylvania, and anticipates completion of his degree requirements in the near future.

Dr. Narayan's research is focused on the cardiotoxic effects of cancer therapies. He is interested in characterizing the natural history and risk factors for the development of cardiomyopathy after cancer therapy and determining the optimal diagnostic and management strategies for this disease. In addition to interpreting cardiac imaging studies in the context of clinical care, he is actively involved in teaching residents and fellows in pediatric cardiology in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.
