Meet The Faculty

The Department of Cardiovascular Diseases at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, has 21 cardiologists, 14 advanced practice providers, and several full-time researchers dedicated to outstanding patient care and innovation in translational and clinical research related to disorders of the heart, arteries, veins, and lymphatic vessels.

Patient care is supported by many laboratories, sub-subspecialty clinics, and preventive health programs. Our colleagues in the Department of Transplantation include four advanced heart failure and transplant cardiologists with whom we collaborate very closely. In total, Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida employs 25 full- or part-time cardiologists and one emeritus cardiologist.

The field of cardiology and vascular medicine is dynamic. New diagnostic techniques, drugs, and interventions are continuously being introduced. Department members are organized into a variety of subspecialty teams. Each group focuses on a particular segment of cardiology or vascular medicine. Their specific expertise is a resource for everyone and enables the entire department to stay at the leading edge of change in cardiology and vascular medicine.

The physicians in cardiology and vascular medicine work closely with a variety of other groups to provide care for patients. While you are training at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida, your practical experience will span the spectrum of cardiovascular services and patients.
