Cardiology is the medical specialty concerned with the
diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the heart. The
Cardiology Division at Michigan State University in
the College of Human Medicine, Department of Internal
Medicine, provides a variety of premium high quality
outpatient services at the Clinical Center on campus,
to hundreds of Mid-Michigan residents. These
services include consultations, non-invasive cardiology
testing, stress testing, echocardiography, holter monitoring,
ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, and EKG testing.
Additionally we provide inpatient and outpatient services
at the local Lansing area hospitals, which include both
non-invasive and invasive testing. These tests include
cardiac catheterizations and cardiac intervention.
All of our cardiologists are board certified
and provide quality care to patients and their families
and serve as advocates for the patient’s health.
The Cardiology Division caregiving team, its staff,
nurses and clinical manager coordinate timely communication
with the patient and referring physician. As team members,
they pledge to make patient visits as comfortable as
possible, which includes explaining everything to the
patient regarding their condition, medications, and
In addition to giving high quality care
to Mid-Michigan residents, the Cardiology Division also
has a cardiovascular
disease fellowship program. The three-year fellowship
program is accredited through A.C.G.M.E. (Accreditation
Council on Graduate Medical Education). The Cardiology
Division, with the help of many community physicians,
train the fellows to specialize in cardiovascular disease.
These fellows are dedicated to serving the needs of
the patient and strive for excellence for the purpose
of improving health.
The physicians in the Cardiology Division
are also involved in medical research regarding cardiovascular
disease. Many faculty members have written multiple
abstracts, book chapters, books and journal articles
on cardiovascular health and research. This continues
to be an on going project for all academic physicians
in the Cardiology Division.
Our mission is to educate, train and
inspire students and physicians in the discipline of
medicine. To provide quality, compassionate care for
patients and their families and to attain research excellence
for the purpose of improving the health of all.
