Lynne Warner Stevenson, MD
Professor of Medicine
Program Director, Advanced Heart Failure Fellowship Program
Dr. Stevenson has been Director of Cardiomyopathy and Heart Failure Programs at UCLA, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and has recently moved to become Director of Cardiomyopathy and the Lisa Jacobson Professor of Medicine at Vanderbilt University. She has been an active member of AHA, ACC, ISHLT, and HFSA societies and a major contributing writer to 30 national guidelines relating to heart failure, cardiac transplantation, ventricular assist devices, arrhythmia devices, and decision-making in advanced heart failure, and served on FDA and the CMS MEDCAC advisory panels. For the past 30 years she has supervised training of 50 fellows in heart failure and transplantation, over half of whom over are women and almost all are currently in academic positions in heart failure and transplantation. She has played leadership roles in NHLBI-sponsored studies for strategies of medical and device therapies in advanced heart failure, was one of the designers of the INTERMACS and NCDR ICD registries, collaborates with the Cardio-Thoracic Surgery Network and has mentored 2 networks of NHLBI young investigators. Her academic work has focused on clinical and hemodynamic assessment to personalize therapy for heart failure, and a systematic approach to collection of the contemporary data vital for patient-centered decision-making. She is currently serving as co-chair for the ACC committee developing the inpatient HF pathway and the ACC forum for incorporation of patient-reported outcomes into cardiology practice. Strong commitments for her remain training for the next generation to sustain the spirit of challenge, the patient-doctor relationship, and the synthesis of evidence to guide individualization of care for patients into alignment with their goals for quality and length of life.
