Meet the Author

Paul Wang

Dr Paul J Wang is the Director of the Stanford Cardiac Arrhythmia Service and Cardiac Electrophysiology Laboratory. He received his undergraduate degree at Harvard University and his medical degree at Columbia University in New York City. He received his medical residency at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York City and completed his cardiovascular training at Brigham and Women's Hospital.

Dr Wang has co-authored textbooks on implantable defibrillators, sudden cardiac death, and cardiac resynchronization/biventricular pacing therapy and has invented a number of new arrhythmia technologies.

He articipates on numerous national boards and panels in cardiac electrophysiology. He is currently Vice-Chair of the Education Committee of the Heart Rhythm Society. He is co-director of an Advanced Course in Pacemakers, Implantable Defibrillators, and Resynchronization Therapy sponsored by the Heart Rhythm Society. He also serves as a member of the Cardiac Electrophysiology Board Certification Exam Writing Committee of the American Board of Internal Medicine.
