Adam D. DeVore, MD, MHS

Dr. DeVore is a cardiologist and Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, at Duke University School of Medicine. His clinical interests include caring for patients and families with heart failure, including those with left ventricular assist devices and heart transplants. He is involved in and leads multiple large studies of patients with heart failure at both Duke University Medical Center and the Duke Clinical Research Institute. He currently serves as the assistant director of the Duke Heart Transplant program and the medical director for the Heart Failure Research Cluster.

He attended medical school at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine and completed internal medicine residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He then pursued cardiology training at Duke University and solidified his interests in clinical research and heart failure. He completed a research fellowship at the Duke Clinical Research Institute and a Masters of Health Sciences in Clinical Research before completing an advanced heart failure fellowship at Duke University.

The overarching goals of his research are to advance the current understanding of heart failure through clinical trials as well as develop an evidence base for implementation strategies that addresses the gap between heart failure trial results and clinical practice. For example, he has served on the Steering Committees for large clinical trials, including PIONEER-HF and SPIRRIT-HFpEF. Dr. DeVore also published the first clinical trial conducted within the American Heart Association’s Get With The Guidelines-Heart Failure program, a registry-based cluster randomized trial of quality improvement interventions. He is also the principal investigator for CONNECT-HF, a large-scale, pragmatic, cluster-randomized trial at 161 sites in the US evaluating heart failure quality improvement initiatives. Outside of his work on heart failure, Dr. DeVore is  married with 4 children and spends his time corralling them all and coaching Little League baseball.
