The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) Heart & Vascular Center is one of the largest and most distinguished cardiovascular programs in the world with over 100 cardiologists across every specialty, and an experienced staff of cardiac nurse practitioners, registered nurses and physician assistants. Along with a team of surgeons and specialists, our cardiologists provide advanced testing and treatment for common and complex heart conditions.
Our board certified cardiologists have a legacy of innovation marked by life-saving drug discoveries including the use of aspirin and statins; intervention inventions such as the drug-eluting cardiac stent; major strides in cardiac regeneration and cardio-oncology; and a deeper understanding of the genetics of heart disease. We continue to develop new treatments every day, systematically transitioning discoveries from the research phase to direct patient care.
Under the leadership of Calum MacRae, MD, PhD, the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine practices patient-centered medicine, matching patients with the right doctor and the right treatment in real time. Services within the technologically-advanced Shapiro Cardiovascular Center emphasize healing in a collaborative and comfortable environment. Our cardiologists forge partnerships with patients, families and referring physicians—relationships that continue long after discharge, both in-person and through remote patient monitoring.
Cardiologists in the Heart & Vascular Center are changing the face of cardiovascular medicine: developing and bringing into practice groundbreaking research; training the next generation of cardiovascular care providers through specialized fellowships; and providing expert patient care—with heart.
