About me

Dr Ashan Gunarathne is an Honorary Assistant Professor and Consultant Cardiologist at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) specialising in coronary and structural interventions.
He first completed his Cardiology training in the East Midlands then went on to obtain further training in performing complex coronary and structural interventions (CTOs, TAVI, LAAO, PFO) during his fellowship. Subsequently, he completed a higher academic research degree leading to many peer reviewed publications in high impact factor journals as well as a Doctor of Medicine degree (MD) from the University of Birmingham.
Qualifications notwithstanding, he also pioneered a myriad of state-of-the-art, novel structural interventional services to the NUH, acting as the clinical lead for left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) service. He affiliated to the University of Nottingham as an assistant professor and is currently working as Clinical Lead for the Undergraduate Cardiology teaching Program.
Dr Gunarathne is a keen researcher and has contributed many clinical national and international cardiology clinical trials as a local Principal Investigator. He is an author of more than fifty publications and book chapters and has delivered academic lecturers in both national and international conferences and eager to continue and expand research in Nottingham.

On a similar scale, he is passionate about contributing towards national and International educational programs. He is the course director of the Introduction to Cardiac Structural Intervention (ICSI -UK) International cardiology course. He has served as a committee member of the Royal College of Physicians National Trainees committee (RCP-UK), as well as being deputy chair for the MRCP management committee board and a representative of British Junior Cardiologist Association-UK for the Euro-PCR Young Cardiologists of Tomorrows committee.
