A Message from our Chief
Welcome to the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, a dynamic and innovative center dedicated to excellence in research, medical education, and clinical care. Our division is driven by over 80 faculty, clinician educators and instructors who are the pillar of strength in the Division’s ongoing efforts into the prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular disease. Our goal is to provide excellence in teaching, research and clinical care. The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine is one of the largest academic and clinical units within the Department of Medicine, providing clinical services to more than 250,000 patients annually through Stanford University Medical Center and the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System. We deliver compassionate and cutting edge preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic services to patients with coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, arrhythmia, aortic disease and heart failure.
Our Research Center, the Falk Center, is one of the pre-eminent facilities in the world in the field of Cardiovascular Medicine and Cardiothoracic Surgery. The Falk Center is 52,000 square feet, located adjacent to Stanford Hospital and Lucile Salter Packard Children’s Hospital, where collaborative and cutting edge research is performed by our highly trained faculty.
We invite you to learn more about the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine through this website.
Unregulated cell growth seems to be a driver behind the growth of atherosclerotic plaques, changing the traditional story of plaque formation. The rapid cell growth in the arterial wall is similar to pre-cancerous growth in other tissues.
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative has awarded $1.49 million to research projects involving Stanford Medicine scientists who will investigate emerging ideas about the role of inflammation in disease.
The award will fund a research program for heart-health technology and a clinical trial for treating hypertension in black and Hispanic participants and in drivers for ride-hailing companies.
Robert Harrington, the new president of the American Heart Association, recently discussed his views on technology and diversity in medicine.
A new study asserts that disease-management clinics, home visits by nurses and nurse case management should become the standard of care for elderly patients with heart failure after they are discharged from the hospital.

The Heart Failure and Heart Transplant affinity group at Stanford consists of a group of physicians who specialize in the various subspecialties of heart failure management and work in an integrated manner with nurses, dietitians, and social workers to provide highly specialized and comprehensive care to patients with heart failure.
The Adult Congenital Heart Program at Stanford is a joint initiative amongst Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, Stanford Health Care, and Stanford University School of Medicine. At our multidisciplinary cardiovascular clinic, we specialize in adults who were born with congenital heart defects.
The Noninvasive Cardiovascular Imaging Laboratory is a service organized around the evaluation of the heart and vascular systems using non-invasive techniques. Currently, the laboratory consist of 8 Faculty members with clinical expertise in echocardiography and cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging.
