Division of Cardiovascular Medicine
For over 50 years the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Utah has maintained a dedicated team of cardiologists, nurses and staff to provide high quality cardiovascular care to Utahns and residents throughout the Mountain West. Our mission to serve our patients and their families is firmly linked to our chartered commitment to cutting-edge care of cardiac disease through discovery, research, and education, especially for the next generation of cardiovascular specialists.
From pioneering work on the implantation of the first artificial heart to discovering the genetic basis for cardiac sudden death and the long QT syndrome, this rich legacy of our clinical and research faculty continues today.
Our cardiovascular fellowship program—offering advanced programs in clinical electrophysiology including ablation of atrial fibrillation, the latest technologies in cardiac imaging, and new treatments for heart and vascular diseases—is nationally recognized.
