    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Nicole Cresalia is a pediatric cardiologist with expertise in pediatric, fetal and transesophageal echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart). In addition to caring for infants and children as outpatients in the clinic, she cares for hospitalized pediatric patients with heart disease or following cardiac surgery.

    Cresalia enjoys educating families on how surgical outcomes for pediatric cardiology patients have dramatically improved over the past several decades, enabling children to thrive.

    In her research, Cresalia is interested in using noninvasive imaging techniques to predict and improve patient outcomes. She is also interested in how to enhance education at all stages of medical training and completed the UCSF Teaching Scholars Program in 2020. She is the Program Director for the Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Program.

    Cresalia earned her medical degree and completed a residency in pediatrics at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. She completed a pediatric cardiology fellowship at the University of Michigan, where she also trained in advanced noninvasive imaging.

    Cresalia belongs to the American Society of Echocardiography, Society of Pediatric Echocardiography and Fetal Heart Society. In 2010, she received the Jessie L. Ternberg Award, given for determination, perseverance and dedication to patients. Her volunteer work has included providing care at an overnight camp for children born with heart defects.
