Jeremy N. Ruskin, MD
Jeremy Ruskin, MD, is a graduate of Harvard Medical School and a board-certified internist with subspecialty board certification in cardiovascular disease and clinical cardiac electrophysiology.
In 1978, Dr. Ruskin founded the Cardiac Arrhythmia Service and Clinical Electrophysiology Laboratory at the Massachusetts General Hospital, the first service dedicated to the care of patients with cardiac arrhythmias in New England.
Currently, he is the director of the Cardiac Arrhythmia Service, physician at Massachusetts General Hospital and Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Ruskin's early research was supported by an Established Investigator Award from American Heart Association from 1981-86.
major research interests include clinical cardiac electrophysiology, mechanisms of ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death, new antiarrhythmic drugs, cardiac and noncardiac drug-induced arrhythmias, catheter based therapies for ventricular arrhythmias, and mechanisms and new pharmacologic and image guided catheter ablation therapies for atrial fibrillation.
Since 1978, Dr. Ruskin has been directly responsible for the training of more than 90 fellows in clinical cardiac electrophysiology, many of whom are now in leadership positions in academic medicine in the U.S. and abroad.
is an author of more than 300 original scientific publications, chapters, reviews, and monographs.
Dr. Ruskin currently serves as a reviewer of scientific publications for 12 professional journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine and Circulation.
In recognition of his
scientific contributions, Dr. Ruskin
received the Michel Mirowski Award for Excellence in Clinical Cardiology and Electrophysiology in 1997.
In 2002, he
received the Pioneer in Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology Award from the North American Society for Pacing and Electrophysiology
