After completing my undergraduate study in biochemistry at North Texas State University, I attended medical and graduate school at Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, where I received my M.D. and Ph.D. degrees. I completed my residency training at Parkland Memorial Hospital.
I completed cardiology training at Southwestern Medical Center and received advanced echocardiography training at Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes Hospital.
