Adult Congenital Heart Program

Yale Medicine

Office of Cooperative Research


I received my BA from Jackson College of Tufts University and my MD from the Cornell University Medical College. I came to Yale to do my Cardiology Fellowship (where I was the first female cardiology fellow and the first fellow who did additional training in Cardiac Electrophysiology) and have been at Yale since then. I have emphasized patient care and teaching during my career and I am the Director of the Yale Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship Program and Firm Chief of the Goodyer Teaching Service. My research interests have included device and drug therapy of arrhythmias, arrhythmias complicating the management of adults with congenital heart disease, atrial fibrillation, and the cardiac manifestations of sarcoidosis.
