Department leadership structure consists of the Chair, Dr. James D. Marsh, a clinical and molecular cardiologist, experienced educator, and leader. He has chaired the department since 2004. The department has four vice chairs: Dr. Robert W. Bradsher, Vice Chair of Education; Dr. Stavros Manolagas, Vice Chair of Research, Dr. Michelle Krause, Vice-Chair of Clinical Operations, and Dr. Curt Hagedorn, Vice Chair and Chief of Medicine at CAVHS.
