About Us

Dr. Thomas Quertermous and Dr. Alan Yeung

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 40 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.

Heart disease is the cause of more than one in four deaths in the United States. The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine is known for its innovative approach to the diagnosis, and development of long-term strategies for patients at risk or with a history of heart disease. Our faculty members are experts in Interventional Cardiology, Electrophysiology, Heart Failure, Cardiac Transplantation, Cardiac Imaging and Vascular Medicine and have developed research, teaching and patient care programs in all these areas.

In addition to innovative research and the highest quality of patient care, faculty in the division are actively involved in the inspiration, education, and training the next generation of academicians specializing in cardiovascular medicine. Along with the structured and formal fellowship training programs medicine house staff rotates through the cardiology consult service at the VA Hospital and through the cardiology consult service, the cardiology inpatient service, and the coronary care unit at Stanford University. Division faculty regularly participates in resident morning report, noon-time resident educational conferences, and Medical Grand Rounds.
