As founder and director of the MGH Fellowship Program in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology, he has been responsible for the training of more than 120 fellows in cardiac electrophysiology, many of whom are leaders in the field. His research focuses on new technologies for catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation, mechanisms and prevention of ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death, risk stratification for sudden death, and cardiac safety issues in new drug and device development. He is an author of more than 450 scientific publications. Dr. Ruskin is the recipient of the 1997 Michel Mirowski Award for Excellence in Clinical Cardiology and Electrophysiology and the 2002 Heart Rhythm Society Pioneer in Pacing and Electrophysiology Award.
