I have a track record of successful clinical investigation over my 20 year career as a practicing cardiac surgeon.  As such I understand the process and the pitfalls of clinical studies. I have participated in guidelines writing committees and understand “appropriate use” guidelines.  I have participated in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons Council on Clinical Outcomes, Quality and Safety as chair of the Workforce on Patient Safetey.  As chief of cardiac surgery at MGH I have access to the necessary databases and clinical material.  As a clinician I understand the nuances of clinical practice.  I have a track record of successful mentorship of junior investigators.
