She graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara, with a Bachelor of Science in cell and developmental biology and earned her medical degree from Saint Louis University School of Medicine.
Dr. Weisert completed her pediatric residency training and a pediatric cardiology fellowship at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She then completed a fourth year of subspecialty training in pediatric heart failure and transplant medicine, also at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Dr. Weisert is a board-certified pediatrician and board-certified pediatric cardiologist.
Her current research interests include failed single ventricle physiology and improved monitoring of these patients.
