Susan Smyth received her medical degree from University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill. She then completed fellowships at Mt. Sinai Medical School, New York, and University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Her clinical interests are in heart disease treatment and prevention, with a particular focus on disorders of blood clotting, such as cause heart attacks, strokes, lung and leg clots.
As a physician scientist, I am particularly well prepared to consider how we apply the scientific method to alleviating pain and suffering, extending life and promoting health. The questions I ask are: “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 heart and vascular health across the United States.
