Jonathan P. Piccini, MD, MHS, FACC, FAHA, FHRS is a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist and Associate Professor of Medicine with Tenure at Duke University Medical Center and the Duke Clinical Research Institute. He is the Director of the Cardiac Electrophysiology section at the Duke Heart Center. His focus is on the care of patients with atrial fibrillation and complex arrhythmias, with particular emphasis on catheter ablation, left atrial appendage occlusion, and lead extraction. His research interests include the conduct of clinical trials and the assessment of innovative cardiovascular therapeutics for the care of patients with heart rhythm disorders. He has served as the chairman for several national and international clinical trials and registries, including the American Heart Association-Get with the Guidelines Atrial Fibrillation quality improvement registry. He is an associate editor for the American Heart Journal and serves on the editorial board of several journals, including Heart Rhythm, the European Heart Journal, JACC: Clinical Electrophysiology, Circulation: Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology and the Journal of Cardiac Electrophysiology. Dr. Piccini has more than 450 publications in the field of heart rhythm medicine and has been the recipient of several teaching and mentorship awards.
