Dr. Jacob holds a master’s degree in public health from Johns Hopkins University, where he expanded his knowledge of research study design, epidemiology and biostatistics.
After his fellowship at the University of Minnesota, Dr. Jacob completed additional training in advanced cardiovascular imaging at the Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center in Houston.
