Administrative Staff

Lisa DeFabritiis

Lisa DeFabritiis

Lisa DeFabritiis has over 16-years experience in residency and fellowship program administration. She has served as the Education Program Manager for Cardiology at MGH for the past 13 years. Lisa lived in Italy for many years and returned to the U.S. 17 years ago. While working in healthcare, she enrolled in a part-time imaging program and obtained her licensure as a medical imaging technologist and subsequently as a mammographer. However, her passion remained in healthcare administration. She ultimately gave up medical imaging and has been dedicated to the education of fellows in cardiology at MGH.
