About Jeremy Ruskin, MD
The Telemachus & Irene Demoulas Family Foundation Center for Cardiac Arrhythmias provides the highest quality care to patients with cardiac arrhythmias while training future leaders in the field and carrying out essential basic and clinical research to advance the field.
Dr. Jeremy Ruskin is Founder and Director Emeritus of the Telemachus & Irene Demoulas Family Foundation Center for Cardiac Arrhythmias at MGH and Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He received his undergraduate degree from Tufts University and his medical degree from Harvard Medical School. He completed his residency in Internal Medicine at Beth Israel Hospital Boston and his fellowship in Cardiovascular Disease at the MGH. He received his training in clinical cardiac electrophysiology at the USPHS Hospital in Staten Island, New York under the mentorship of Dr. Anthony Damato.
In 1978, Dr. Ruskin founded the first cardiac arrhythmia service and clinical electrophysiology laboratory in New England and one of the first such services in the United States. 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. He holds the Omran Alomran Endowed Chair in Cardiology at Massachusetts General Hospital. In 2017, the Jeremy Ruskin, MD and Dan Starks Endowed Chair in Cardiology was established at MGH in recognition of Dr. Ruskin’s pioneering contributions to the MGH and the field of clinical cardiac electrophysiology. In 2018, Dr. Ruskin received the William Silen Lifetime Achievement in Mentoring Award at Harvard Medical School.

The MGH Cardiac Arrhythmia Service physicians have made important research contributions in a number of areas including the management of survivors of out of hospital cardiac arrest, the development of experimental models for the study of ischemia and infarct-related ventricular arrhythmias, the role of ventricular arrhythmias in the occurrence of unexplained syncope in patients with structural heart disease, the proarrhythmic effects of antiarrhythmic drugs, new energy sources for catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation including cryothermal and laser ablation, the development of advanced image integration techniques to guide mapping and ablation of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia and techniques for optimizing response rates in patients receiving cardiac resynchronization devices for the treatment of congestive heart failure. All of this work has been accomplished in an environment in which dedication to optimal clinical care and patient safety through a disciplined and scholarly approach to the practice of medicine have been and remain the highest priorities of the service.
