Dr. Cabrera graduated from Universidad Francisco Marroquin in Guatemala. He completed his internship and residency at the Children’s Hospital of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). He completed Pediatric Cardiology fellowship at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital/Case Western Reserve University and advanced training in Cardiovascular Critical Care at Arkansas Children’s Hospital/ University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Little Rock, Arkansas.

His first faculty appointment was at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital University of Tennessee in 2006, where he remained until 2010. He served as Assistant Professor, founder and first medical director of the Cardiac Critical Care services.

In 2010, he was recruited Texas Children’s Hospital/Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. While in Houston, Dr. Cabrera was a staff member of the divisions of Critical Care Medicine and Pediatric Cardiology. He was also named director of the Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship Program (categorical and global), Associate Director of the Cardiovascular Intensive Care and Co-Director of the first Heart Failure Unit for Children in the USA and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure.

In 2019, he assumed the role of Chief of Pediatric Cardiology at the University of Utah and co-Director of Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital Heart Center. Dr. Cabrera’s role at the University of Utah includes leading efforts to capitalize on the human and organizational talent to ensure the institution is recognized as a premier clinical, educational, and research institution Nationally and Internationally.

Dr. Cabrera is a highly regarded educator, clinician, and researcher. He has published more than 100 original articles, editorials and book chapters and has lectured extensively nationally and globally. He is the editor of three books: The Texas Children’s Hospital Handbook of Congenital Heart Disease (Mery CM, Bastero P, Hall S, Cabrera AG), Communicating with Pediatric Patients and their Families: The Texas Children’s Hospital Guide for Physicians, Nurses and Other Healthcare Professionals (Palazzi DL, Lorin MI, Turner TL, Ward MA, Cabrera AG) and more recently Rudolph’s textbook of Pediatrics 24th Edition. He has authored consensus statements on cardiac critical care, heart failure, training and education and workforce assessments in cardiac critical care and cardiology for the Pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Society (PCICS), the American Heart Association (AHA), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC). He is the past President of the Society of Pediatric Cardiology Training Program Directors (SPCTPD), is an Executive Committee member of the AAP Section on Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery and currently serves as chair-elect of the Young Hearts Council of the American Heart Association.

Outside of work, Dr. Cabrera is an avid cook, guitar playing and Latin-dance enthusiast and loves spending time with his wife Melissa and their four children: Martin Antonio, Elena Rose, Mariana Jo, and Marco Henry.
