Bruce B. Lerman is a cardiologist. He is the Hilda Altschul Master Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College, and is chief of the Division of Cardiology and director of the Cardiac Electrophysiology Laboratory at Weill Cornell Medicine and the New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Education[edit]

Lerman received a BA at Clark University in 1972, an MD medical degree from Loyola University - Stritch School of Medicine in 1977, was an intern and medical resident in internal medicine at Northwestern University, and completed a fellowship in cardiovascular disease at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.[1][2][3] He trained in cardiac electrophysiology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.[2]

Career[edit]

Lerman is a cardiologist in New York City, with specialties in adult congenital heart disease and cardiac electrophysiology.[1]

Lerman is the Hilda Altschul Master Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College, and chief of the Division of Cardiology and director of the Cardiac Electrophysiology Laboratory at Weill Cornell Medicine and the New York Presbyterian Hospital.[2][3][4][5][6][7]

He has focused in his research on clarifying the electrophysiologic mechanisms of the nucleoside adenosine, current-based defibrillation, and determining the role of mechanoelectrical feedback as a stimulus for causing malignant ventricular arrhythmias.[2] He has been issued 4 patents.[2] Lerman has focused in his clinical work on the diagnosis and treatment by ablation of complicated atrial and ventricular arrhythmias, and treating life-threatening arrhythmias with implantable devices.[2]

Lerman received the Established Investigator Award from the American Heart Association, and had received a number of grants from the National Institutes of Health.[2] He is on the editorial boards of a number of medical and scientific journals, including Circulation and Heart Rhythm.[2]

Publications[edit]

Lerman has written or co-written over 200 medical articles, 60 book chapters, and two books.[8][2]

Among his publications are:[9]
