Medtronic Zipes Professor of Cardiology

Methodist KIC E371
Indianapolis, IN


Dr. Subha Raman is a cardiologist and physician-scientist at the Indiana University School of Medicine and IU Health, joining in 2020 as Chief of Cardiology, Director of the Cardiovascular Institute, and VP for Cardiovascular Services. Through clinical, investigative, educational and administrative efforts, she is dedicated to those we serve and those who serve in heart & vascular patient care, research, and teaching.

Dr. Raman obtained her bachelor’s and master’s degrees at The Ohio State University in electrical engineering, completing graduate work as a National Science Foundation Fellow. She then trained in internal medicine and cardiology at OSU with additional training at Wake Forest University in cardiovascular magnetic resonance. She served on the faculty of OSU College of Medicine from 2002 to 2019, establishing advanced cardiovascular imaging programs as integrated clinical, research and teaching services, where technological advances informed by bedside acumen serve unmet needs in cardiovascular health.

In addition to her clinical work in both outpatient and inpatient cardiology, Dr. Raman maintains an active research program dedicated to earlier detection and improved outcomes in heart and vascular disease. Her interdisciplinary work addresses heart health in those with neuromuscular conditions, cardiometabolic risk, and myocardial inflammation. She also serves the broader communities of cardiovascular medicine and science through service to organizations such as the American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance, Society for Cardiovascular Computed Tomography, and the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
