Dr. Daphne Hsu received her bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Harvard-Radcliffe College. After graduating from the Yale University School of Medicine, she received her training in pediatrics and pediatric cardiology at the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. She was a member of the faculty of Columbia University for 19 years, during which time she was the Director of Pediatric Heart Failure and Director of Clinical Research for the Division of Pediatric Cardiology. In 2007, she moved to the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore and Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
In addition to building the clinical services in interventional cardiology, invasive electrophysiology, advanced cardiac imaging, and adult congenital heart disease, Dr. Hsu has established a pediatric heart failure and heart transplant program that performed the first pediatric heart transplant in the Bronx in 2009.
Dr. Hsu is a principal investigator for the NIH/NHLBI funded Pediatric Heart Network, and an investigator in several NIH-funded studies on children's acquired and congenital heart diseases. She is a member of the American Pediatric Society and serves on the Sub-Board of Pediatric Cardiology of the American Board of Pediatrics.
This grand rounds is hosted by the Division of Cardiology.
After attending this activity, participants will be able to:
- List the barriers to performing clinical outcomes research in pediatric cardiology
- Describe the results of clinical trials recently completed by the Pediatric Heart Network
- Identify areas of future research in pediatric cardiology that would benefit from a multi-center approach
Albert Einstein College of Medicine designates this educational activity for a maximum of 1 credit towards the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
