My name is Susan Smyth; I received my medical degree from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, School of Medicine, Chapel Hill, N.C. I then completed fellowships at Mt. Sinai Medical School, New York, and University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, N.C .
I am board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Cardiovascular Disease and a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology.
I'm a physician scientist and the thing that drives me, and that I think I'm the best prepared to do, is to think about how we apply the scientific method to alleviating pain and suffering, extending life and promoting health. I ask myself, “How can we apply the knowledge that we have today, and what are our gaps in terms of the things that we don't understand?” I want to find these answers so that we can improve what we're doing for heart patients across the United States.
