The Cardiovascular Division at Washington University School of Medicine is a national leader in the delivery of high-quality cardiovascular care to a large, diverse patient population with a range of cardiovascular care needs, in training the next generation of leaders in cardiovascular medicine, and in conducting basic, translational, clinical, and population research to improve cardiovascular outcomes.

The Division, in partnership with Barnes-Jewish Hospital, provides a full range of services including:

Faculty members from the Division have provided groundbreaking research in the area of thrombolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction, biomarkers for cardiac injury and cardiac imaging. The clinical excellence of the Division is reflected by the consistent high ranking in U.S. News & World Report. The faculty provide care for inpatients in the Heart and Vascular Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, and see outpatients at the Center for Advanced Medicine on the Washington University School of Medicine campus, as well as in the western and southern suburbs of the St. Louis metropolitan area.

The Division has more than 75 faculty members, who are nationally and internationally recognized for their clinical expertise and their research contributions. The Cardiovascular Division has trained more than 300 cardiology fellows, as well as numerous graduate students (PhD and MD/PhD) and post-doctoral research fellows, many of whom have become leaders in academic medicine.

Cardiovascular Division Statement on Anti-Racism: We as a division stand in solidarity with our Black colleagues, trainees and students, staff, patients, and communities, in opposition to all forms of discrimination and injustice. We are committed to working to become intentionally and consciously anti-racist in all that we do, from education to research to clinical care. As cardiovascular professionals, we know all too well the ways in which a lack of equity in health care, education, employment, public safety, and housing impact cardiovascular and overall health among people and communities of color. These and other elements of structural and individual racism drive racial inequities that we must not let persist.
