    I've been on the full time faculty in the HUP Cardiovascular division since 1997, and am currently an Associate Professor of Medicine. I am currently the Associate Chief for Education, in the HUP Cardiovascular Division. My focus in this role is in managing the large and diverse educational portfolio of the CV division including running its student, resident, and fellowship training programs. I am responsible for mentoring and career development of leaders and role models in academic investigative cardiovascular medicine through our general and subspecialty training programs and am responsible for the supervision and training of approximately 45 fellows per year. I am an active clinical cardiologist, cardiovascular imager and a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, as well as a member of the American Society of Echocardiography. My focus is in CV imaging of structural heart disease and in interventional echo guidance of percutaneous transcatheter procedures. My scholarship includes cardiac imaging and interventional guidance of percutaneous procedures, and I've served as chair of a number of society guidelines documents on the use of echocardiography in structural heart disease. In my precious spare time I run, cycle, play and record music, and see a good number of concerts per year!

    Ethan Weiss is a cardiologist specializing in general cardiology. His special interests include preventive cardiology, genetics of coronary disease, risk assessment, and heart disease in the young. In his research, Dr. Weiss uses genetic models to better understand the mechanism of metabolic disorders such as obesity, fatty liver disease, and diabetes. He also studies the blood clotting system and has interest in identifying novel ways to safely block clots associated with diseases such as heart attack and stroke without causing an increase in bleeding.
