Jonathan Chrispin, M.D. is the Robert E. Meyerhoff Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Johns Hopkins Medicine Division of Cardiology, Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia. Dr. Chrispin focuses on all aspects of clinical electrophysiology, including pacemaker/defibrillator implantation, complex catheter ablation for atrial and ventricular arrhythmias and laser-lead extraction.
Dr. Chrispin received his bachelor of arts degree at Harvard College. He received his doctor of medicine degree from Vanderbilt University. He completed intern and residency training in internal medicine at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he also completed a fellowship in cardiovascular disease and served as chief clinical cardiac electrophysiology fellow. He is a member of the American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association and Heart Rhythm Society.
Dr. Chrispin directs the Ventricular Arrhythmia research program with a focus on using advanced cardiac imaging to better understand the structural substrate that is associated with the development of ventricular arrhythmias. Further, he is involved in developing clinical trials to improve the safety and efficacy of catheter ablation for the treatment of ventricular tachycardia. His work has led to Dr. Chrispin being a peer reviewer in a number of international journals including Circulation, the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Journal of the American Heart Association, American Journal of Cardiology, EP Europace and Clinical Cardiology.
