Cardiovascular Medicine

Yale’s physicians treat the full spectrum of cardiovascular conditions, and our teams offer care in programs in several specialized areas, including inherited cardiomyopathy, cardiovascular genetics, echocardiography, electrophysiology, heart failure, interventional cardiology (structural and vascular heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, coronary heart disease), and transplantation. Our Interventional Cardiology and Structural Heart Disease Programs are the largest in Connecticut.

In addition to providing comprehensive clinical care, our cardiologists are involved in five specialized research centers, including Yale Cardiology Research Group, Yale Translational Investigations Center, Cardiovascular Clinical Trials Program, the Center for Outcomes Research and evaluation (CORE), and the Yale Cardiovascular Research Center, with faculty from eight countries and four continents.
