LITTLE ROCK — Kapil Yadav, M.D., an established interventional cardiologist in central Arkansas, has joined the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) to lead its Nuclear Cardiology and Vascular Medicine Program.

An associate professor in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine in the UAMS College of Medicine’s Department of Internal Medicine, Yadav will treat patients at the UAMS Neighborhood Clinic in Maumelle and at the Outpatient Center on the UAMS campus.

“I am delighted that Dr. Kapil Yadav has chosen to move his practice to UAMS,” said Paul Mounsey, M.D., Ph.D., director of the UAMS Division of Cardiovascular Medicine. “A prominent local cardiologist with wide clinical interests, Dr. Yadav will strengthen both our noninvasive cardiology services, particularly nuclear cardiology, and our interventional cardiology group.”

Mounsey added, “His interest in peripheral vascular disease will add a new dimension to the cardiovascular disease management at UAMS.  He will also have an important role in educating our fellows and residents about cardiology.”

Yadav, an interventional and endovascular cardiologist, completed a fellowship in interventional and structural cardiology at the University of Arizona College of Medicine in Tucson in 2018 and a fellowship in cardiovascular disease at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans in 2017.

He completed a residency in internal medicine at Cook County Hospital in Chicago in 2014, after receiving his medical degree from SMS Medical College in India with rotations at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City.

“UAMS has an outstanding cardiovascular team, and we are growing the program to provide a wide variety of specialized care,” Yadav said.

He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in cardiovascular disease and interventional cardiology, the National Board of Echocardiography and the Board of Nuclear Cardiology.
