After residency, instructorship and a term as assistant professor at University of Chicago Department of Medicine, Dr Chaudry moved east, serving as assistant professor of medicine at University of Connecticut. Later, after a term as a postdoctoral fellow in the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars program at Yale, and a term as special research fellow in the Connecticut VA, she assumed her present role as assistant professor of medicine in the Department of Internal Medicine at Yale University.

Dr. Chaudhry’s research focuses on improving the care and outcomes of older persons with heart failure. While a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar, she was part of a program that included ongoing mentoring, focused research projects, and formal, didactic coursework. She has extensive experience in clinical trials, serving as Director of Science for a multi-center, R01 funded trial examining remote symptom monitoring for patients recently hospitalized for heart failure. She successfully obtained a K23/Beeson Career Development Award, as well as pilot funding from the Yale Pepper Center, to conduct an observational study of geriatric impairments in patients hospitalized with decompensated heart failure. She is also conducting analyses using several large data sets, including the Cardiovascular Health Study and the Health, Aging, and Body Composition Study.
