Welcome to the Division of CardioVascular Medicine within the CardioVascular Institute (CVI). Our mission is to provide our patients with outstanding, compassionate care, to educate the leading cardiologists of tomorrow and to advance the frontiers of cardiovascular research.
Distinguished Track Record
The division has a distinguished track record in all three areas. From establishing the first dedicated atrial fibrillation clinic and research institute in the Boston area, to training hundreds of cardiologists, to inventing the first pacemaker used in humans, our division has been a pioneer since it was founded in the early 1900s.
Along with cardiac surgery and vascular and endovascular surgery, we are one of three divisions that together form the CardioVascular Institute. Supported by sophisticated technology and advanced imaging, our physicians work collaboratively with colleagues across specializations to ensure patients receive integrated, effective care.
