BiographyDr. McFarland had his internal medicine and cardiology training at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and since 1980, has practiced general cardiology there. He spent time at the Cambridge Hospital (now the Cambridge Health Alliance) serving as chief of cardiology and chief of Medicine before returning to the MGH in 1980.
