Our department offers comprehensive, high-quality heart care to patients, whether they need treatment for a common condition or one that requires advanced procedures and technology.
Our team-based approach to patient care brings together specialists from cardiovascular medicine, pediatric cardiology, thoracic and vascular surgery, and interventional radiology.
Our programs provide training of the highest caliber, in order to prepare clinicians and researchers who will serve as leaders in academic cardiovascular medicine. We work collaboratively with faculty from many disciplines and departments in the School of Medicine, and fellows have access to highly trained physicians and staff who are deeply committed to patient care.
"I love getting into a research sandbox where there’s interaction between a diverse set of people.” —Professor Jonathan Lindner, MD, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, on his research about new ways to image the heart non-invasively.
