Dr. Anna Khanna completed her Preliminary Internal Medicine residency year in the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1999. She then remained there and completed her neurology residency in 2002. She was inspired to pursue an interest in vascular neurology by her program director, Dr. Steven Kamin and by the newly appointed chair Dr Patrick Pullicino. The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) had a very active vascular program which combined both medical and endovascular therapy for the treatment of stroke. Dr Khanna then became their first stroke fellow and completed the fellowship in 2003. She remained on faculty at UMDNJ as an Assistant Professor and stroke program director. She mentored medical students and residents while providing care to patients on the stroke service. She served an integral role in the community outreach effort and traveled to multiple locations in order to educate the public.
Dr. Khanna was the director of the outpatient stroke clinic. She introduced a comprehensive vascular ultrasound examination to the outpatient setting. She also was the director of the resident clinic. Dr. Khanna then joined the faculty in Saint Barnabas University Hospital where she was the stroke program director. There she mentored residents in Internal Medicine, introducing them to the multitude of vascular disorders. In both hospitals she was an essential component in their JACHO Primary Stroke Center accreditation.
Dr. Khanna moved to Florida 2007 when she joined Neurological Associates, a private practice group headed by Dr Jay Rubin. She provided general neurology care to the community serving mainly as a neurohospitalist in Ocala Regional and West Marion hospitals. She decided to return to academics after her interest in vascular neurology was rekindled by the current director of the vascular division at University of Florida. She joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor in the vascular neurology division in the University of Florida in 2011. She is currently providing care to patients on the stroke service and in the outpatient clinic. She mentors 2 stroke fellows, medical students and residents. Dr Khanna’s main interest lays in the acute stroke management. She is involved in several clinical trials treating acute stroke.
