Heart Rhythm Society Honors Dr. Ellenbogen

Congratulations to Dr. Kenneth Ellenbogen, chair of the Division of Cardiology, who has been selected for the Distinguished Teacher Award by the Heart Rhythm Society, a leading international professional organization for those who work in the cardiac arrhythmia field. The award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated outstanding skills as a teacher in electrophysiology and/or cardiac pacing.

“During his almost 30 years at MCV, dozens of fellows have benefited directly from his instruction, but his influence is much wider; he is an internationally recognized leader in fellow education, participating in and chairing dozens of fellow-training seminars. In addition, he is in the top echelon of highly sought speakers at national and international symposia for audiences of academic and practicing electrophysiologists,” says Dr. John M. Miller, professor of medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine, in his nomination.

Dr. Ellenbogen, who also serves on the society’s Board Review Course, received the prestigious award in May at the organization’s annual meeting.
