Biographical

Where has the time gone? Was it really 31 years ago Richard P. Lewis MD, Chief of Cardiology, and Ernest L. Mazzaferri MD, Chairman of Medicine, invited and inspired me to join the Division of Cardiology and Department of Medicine at The Ohio State University on the just introduced "Clinical Track?" While many concerns were expressed by the traditionalists over this new designation ("A group of 2nd class citizens, nothing but grist for the mill..."), I trusted my esteemed mentors, and they me, as the first five of us set sail into the uncharted non-tenured track waters. Three decades later, most of the original cadre of trail blazers remain on faculty enjoying successful careers, respected for their clinical skills, educational expertise, programs built and research support. Indeed, the naysayers have vanished as the Department of Medicine and College could no longer function without the Clinical Track. Indeed, 68% of the physician faculty are now Clinical Track.



Having joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine in 1985, I was promoted to Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine in 1992. That promotion was cemented primarily by my contribution to medical student education, having directed, updated and revised the Cardiology Med II Curriculum; my clinical skills in patient care and Cardiac Imaging brought with me from my training at The University of Virginia, and clinically related publications and supportive role in others research projects and manuscripts.



So now, just what exactly have I done in the last 25 years since that 1992 promotion and why would I deserve promotion to Full Professor of Clinical Medicine on The Clinical Excellence Track?



The dossier to follow will detail, but allow me to summarize. Clinical Production, Education, Imaging Program Development, Mentorship, Philanthropy and Athletes have been my life's work.



Clinical Production:

100,000 Non-Invasive procedures

15,000 outpatient visits

7,000 hospital patient encounters.

**Woodward and White Best Midwest Region Doctors:

1996, ''99, '02, '05, '08, '10, '13, '16.

**Columbus Monthly Best Doctors:

2000, '02, '04, '06, '08, '10, '12, '14.

**"Certificate of Excellence," Patient Satisfaction:

2013, '14, '15.



Medical Education:

1000 Medical Students on Cardiology Services

1000 Interns and Residents on Cardiology Services

**2010 Department of Medicine Student Teaching Award**

10 Post Doctoral Cardiology Fellows

**65% Now or previously in Academic Centers**



Imaging Program Development

I personally Developed and was the Director of the first Outpatient Non-Invasive Imaging Center in the Ohio State University Medical Center at the Millrun Cardiovascular Diagnostic Center. "The Millrun Model" financially saved the Division of Cardiology in 2000, expanded the patient base and set the stage for The Ross Heart Hospital and additional Outpatient Non-Invasive Imaging Centers in Gahanna, Martha Morehouse, Lewis Center and Upper Arlington. Without that first Outpatient Cardiac Imaging Center, a dwindling Division of Cardiology would still be trapped in the old hospital, patients scattered in four buildings on a dozen floors.



Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging

I personally started the Cardiac MRI Program in 1993.

Director, Cardiac MRI 1993-1995, 2000-2006.

The perfect storm of developing CMR technology, the opening of the Ross Heart Hospital in 2006 and the maturation of protégé Subha Raman MD led to both a clinical and academic explosion with 2000 studies, 30 published manuscripts and three RO1 Grants worth $4 million.



Mentorship:

In particular, 10 Cardiology Fellows, 6 of whom have gone on to academic careers, including Ohio State University Division of Cardiology Faculty: Subha Raman MD, Full Professor of Medicine, Tenured Track; Jaret Tyler MD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine, and Sakima Smith MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Tenured Track; with 2 yet to finish their subspecialty training.



Philanthropy:

In total, $14,000,000 in grateful patient support for:

Endowed Chairs (1), Joseph M. Ryan MD Chair in Cardiology: Subha Raman MD. $2,500,000 from family, friends and grateful patients.

Endowed Professorships (1), Dottie Dohan Shepard Professorship in Cardiology: Curtis Daniels MD. $1,000,000 from grateful patient Art Shepard in honor of his late wife.

The Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital, $10,000,000 Naming Gift from grateful patient Elizabeth Ross in honor of her late husband and grateful patient, Richard M. Ross.

Multiple other five and six figure gifts to support research activities and laboratories throughout the Division of Cardiology.



Athletes:

The "Go To" Cardiologist at Ohio State University and Central Ohio for Cardiac Clearance and Evaluation of Athletes with known or suspected Heart Disease.



Medical Director and First Aid Chairman for The Annual Memorial Tournament (26 years), President's Cup Golf Championship and United States Senior Open Golf Championship.
