Division of Cardiology

Our Division

The Division of Cardiology within the Department of Medicine pursues its goals of educating future leaders in cardiovascular medicine, exploring leading edge basic translational, clinical and population research that will redefine the field, and providing exceptional care for patients at risk for or with established cardiovascular disease. Recognized as a national leader in Cardiology, the combined efforts of the Divisions of Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery has led to a top 10 designation in the United States. The Division of Cardiology has 110 faculty, 34 fellows and 11 research staff. Activities occur not only on the downtown (Northwestern Memorial Hospital) campus but also on the Northwestern Lake Forest, Glenview, Central DuPage and Delnor sites. Research and educational activities incorporate the Department of Preventive Medicine and the Feinberg Cardiovascular Research Institute.  The Division has a $14.4 million research portfolio, manages 50 clinical trials through the Clinical Trials Unit, and performs 6,500 invasive cardiac procedures, 22,000 imaging studies and over 56,000 annual ambulatory patient visits. Members of the Division are well published and hold leadership positions on several of the most important clinical practice guideline statements. A significant number of our faculty members hold leading editorial positions on the boards of the major journals in cardiovascular medicine. Several faculty members have held or currently hold senior leadership roles in the leading cardiovascular organizations in the country.
