Dr. Jabeen Taj is an alumnus of the 1997 Batch of DCMS. She did her elementary and middle school education in Sharjah, U.A.E before moving to Hyderabad, India for higher secondary education. Her intermediate (pre-med) education was at St. Ann’s Junior College for Women in Hyderabad. At the time, she was interested in studying Genetics but admission to Deccan College of Medical Sciences got her interested in the epidemiology of diseases and Internal Medicine. After completing her residency in Internal Medicine, her interest in cardiology led her to the University of Iowa where her primary clinical duties were as a cardiovascular hospitalist. Working closely with advanced heart failure and transplant/VAD patients, she decided to pursue a fellowship in supportive care/palliative medicine and is now leading the cardiac palliative care program at Emory. Her research interests include the management of non-classic symptoms of heart failure, embedded clinic models of supportive care for advanced heart failure patients in the outpatient setting, and population health.

Dr. Taj enjoys spending time with family, adventure sports, and traveling. She is an avid reader and enjoys classic literature.
