Jeffrey A. Breall, MD, PhD
Professor of Clinical Medicine
Dr. Breall received his undergraduate degree in physiology from the University of California at Berkeley and his PhD in physiology at the University of California at San Francisco, where he worked in the laboratory of Dr. Abraham M. Rudolph in the Cardiovascular Research Institute. Dr. Breall earned his MD degree at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He also spent several months in the coronary laboratory of Dr. Edward Kirk. Breall completed his residency and fellowship research training in cardiovascular diseases and interventional cardiology at Beth Israel Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. Dr. Breall was on the faculty at Georgetown University for seven years where he served as Associate Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories and Interventional Cardiology. He came to Indiana University in 2000 to lead the interventional section. He has participated in numerous multi-center clinical trials, and has authored many papers and book chapters. Dr. Breall specializes in high-risk coronary intervention. He is the Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories and head of Interventional Cardiology for Indiana University and Medical Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories for Clarian Health Partners. He has had a long-standing interest in new devices and new pharmacologic agents for percutaneous coronary and cardiac intervention, as well as quality improvement in the catheterization laboratory. Breall is a member of the Councils on Clinical Cardiology Cardiovascular Radiology and Intervention and Fellow of the American Heart Association, the American College of Cardiology, American College of Chest Physicians, and American College of Physicians.
