Moore earned his medical degree from the University of California, San Diego. He completed a residency in pediatrics at the University of Washington Medical Center. He completed a fellowship in pediatric cardiology at UCSF.
Moore is internationally known for his work on patent ductus arteriosus (a congenital heart defect) and atrial septal defect device closure (an implant that can correct a hole in the wall between the heart’s upper chambers).
