The Distinguished Service Award is one of four major awards given by the Heart Rhythm Society in recognition of an individual who has made outstanding contributions.
Dr. Fisher is Director of the Einstein-Montefiore Arrhythmia Service, which includes two component services, Clinical Electrophysiology and Pacemakers/ICDs. The Arrhythmia Service has close ties with cardiothoracic surgery, imaging, basic electrophysiology, and pediatric electrophysiology. Dr. Fisher is also the Training Program Director for the ACGME-accredited fellowship in clinical electrophysiology (CCEP). His research interests include arrhythmia mechanisms and treatment, ablation, VT, VF, SVT, AF, WPW, pacemakers, ICDs, heart failure resynchronization devices, and syncope.
The Heart Rhythm Society, founded in 1979 by four electrophysiologists who recognized the need for a society dedicated to the field cardiac pacing and electrophysiology, distributes four major awards: Distinguished Service, Distinguished Scientist, Distinguished Teacher, and Pioneer in Pacing and Electrophysiology. Dr. Fisher previously received the Pioneer in Pacing and Electrophysiology Award.
