The Section of Cardiology's nationally recognized clinical faculty members are dedicated to the education and training of physicians in Cardiovascular Diseases. Because our physicians are also academicians, patients can be assured that each case is thoroughly reviewed and all available treatment options are considered. Our faculty members are leaders of research and development in their sub-specialties, often sharing their knowledge by lecturing around the country regarding the latest methods of treating cardiac and peripheral artery disease. The Section of Cardiology also has basic and translational scientists in addition to clinical investigators, participating in numerous research trials.
