What is it about?

William Stevenson is a US cardiologist, known for his work with arrhythmias and developing novel mapping methods and innovative ablation techniques. In 2017, he moved to Vanderbilt University, in Nashville, TN, after over 2 decades at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), in Boston where he served as director of the clinical cardiology electrophysiology (EP) programme and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

Why is it important?

Stevenson took up his new role at Vanderbilt University in October 2017, and is working closely with the already well-established EP group. He is looking at expanding the advanced ablation programme at Vanderbilt and continuing his work on catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias, including continuing the development of a novel intramural needle catheter for mapping and ablation deep within the heart muscle.


A rare example of a US cardiologist who has gone 'the other way' for training in Europe. An interesting and well-told perspective on a life and career that has just opened a new chapter.
