Liviu Klein, MD, MS received his Medical Degree from Carol Davila School of Medicine in Bucharest, Romania, and his Master of Science in Clinical Investigation from Northwestern University, in Chicago. At Northwestern, he trained in Cardiovascular Epidemiology, Cardiovascular Disease, Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology and Advanced Heart Failure and Transplantation. His comprehensive training allowed him to be a "one stop shop" for heart failure patients and he successfully implemented a remote monitoring heart failure device program at Northwestern, leading to a marked decrease in readmissions for heart failure or arrhythmias. Besides leading an expanding Ventricular Assist Device program, he is actively developing several implantable and non-invasive hemodynamic sensors for patients with different cardiovascular diseases.
