Dr. David O'Halloran is the Chief of the Zoll In-patient Cardiology service at BIDMC, Director of the Medical Student Clerkship in Cardiology at BIDMC, Associate Director of the Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship Program at BIDMC and an instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School. Dr. O'Halloran received his bachelor's degree in English Literature and Philosophy from Trinity College Dublin.

He completed internship at St. Vincent's Hospital Dublin and Senior House Officer training at the Mater Misericordiae Hospital in Dublin. He enjoyed the experience of residency so much that he decided to repeat the process at Massachusetts General Hospital. He completed Fellowship training in Cardiovascular Medicine at BIDMC and joined the attending staff of the Cardiovascular Institute at BIDMC. He received the Department of Medicine's Hermann L. Blumgart Teaching Award in 2011, which is given annually to a faculty member who has contributed the most to both housestaff education and professional development.
As a Rabkin Fellow, Dr. O'Halloran has developed a mentorship program within the Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship. He hopes that each current and incoming Fellow will be paired with a faculty mentor who will help to guide the Fellow to achieve their academic, intellectual and personal goals while at BIDMC. This program is due to begin in July 2011.
