Staff Profile

Shaan Khurshid, MD, MPH

Staff Electrophysiologist, Massachusetts General Hospital
Instructor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School

Dr. Khurshid is a practicing cardiac electrophysiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Instructor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and Affiliated Scientist at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.

Dr. Khurshid grew up in the northeast US. He graduated from Johns Hopkins University with a BA in Neuroscience, went on to earn his MD from the University of Pennsylvania and obtained a Master of Public Health degree from Harvard. He completed internal medicine residency as well as cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology fellowships at MGH.

Dr. Khurshid’s primary expertise is in the development and validation of disease risk prediction models, spanning traditional statistical approaches and machine learning algorithms based on raw waveform and imaging data. He has a specific interest in the use of decision science to assess the clinical and cost-effectiveness of risk-informed preventive interventions, such as risk-based screening for cardiac rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation (AF). He has also developed models investigating the comparative effectiveness of various treatment approaches for rare inherited arrhythmia disorders for which randomized outcomes data are limited, such as Brugada Syndrome.
