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 cardiac imaging (echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging). As a clinician and researcher, he seeks to improve the care of cancer patients receiving cardiotoxic therapies. Additionally, he is actively involved in teaching residents and fellows in both the inpatient and outpatient setting.

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 completed a Masters of Science in Clinical Epidemiology program at the University of Pennsylvania.
