Forty for 40: Sandhya Venugopal, MD, MS-HPEd ’16
Cardiology classes at the University of Kentucky School of Medicine were what Sandhya Venugopal enjoyed the most.

A non-invasive cardiologist and specialist in the use of frontline assessments to determine cardiac health, Dr. Venugopal is an associate professor of internal medicine, associate director of the Cardiology Fellowship Training program, and a master clinician educator.
This summer, she was appointed associate dean of Continuing Medical Education responsible for CME activities across UC Davis Health, expanding her responsibilities in curriculum development.
