Personal profile

Dr Tarv Dhanjal is a Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist at the University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire and the BMI Meriden Hospital, Coventry.

Dr Dhanjal is trained in all aspects of cardiac arrhythmia management including catheter ablation in particular ablation therapy for atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, supraventricular tachycardia and Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, pacemaker/defibrillator implantation, cardiac resynchronisation therapy and left atrial appendage occlusion. His specialist interest is ablation of complex arrhythmias especially atrial fibrillation and life-threatening ventricular tachycardia.

He qualified with honours from Birmingham University Medical School in 2000 and rotated through various Glasgow and Birmingham teaching hospitals before returning to University in 2003 to undertake research funded by the British Heart Foundation. He was awarded a PhD from Birmingham University in 2007. He was awarded a clinical training and research position at St Thomas’ Hospital, London where he completed my sub-speciality training in heart rhythm treatment (electrophysiology).

Towards the end of his training he was awarded a two year advanced electrophysiology fellowship at the renowned Henri Mondor Hospital in Paris and was appointed as a Consultant in 2014. 

Dr Dhanjal has presented at several national and international conferences and published numerous scientific papers. He has received several awards and media recognition for his research and clinical work.
