Robert A. Bruce is known as the “Father of Exercise Cardiology.” He developed the standardized treadmill test for diagnosing and evaluating heart and lung diseases. He was the first head of cardiology in 1950. His multistage test – several stages of progressively greater workloads – became known as the “Bruce Protocol.”

We have over 90 full-time clinical faculty at three hospitals: The University of Washington Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center and the Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System.
 
Our faculty are known for excellence in patient care, teaching and research. In fact, many of the cardiologists listed by Seattle Magazine year after year as among "Seattle’s Best Doctors" are full-time University of Washington faculty.
 
Our fellowship program accepts up to seven trainees per year, providing a full spectrum of clinical and research training.
