Jonathan Chrispin, M.D., joins the Johns Hopkins Medicine Division of Cardiology Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia Service as an assistant professor. 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. Dr. Chrispin is board-certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease. He is a member of the American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association and Heart Rhythm Society.
Dr. Chrispin’s research interests focus on using advanced cardiac imaging and advanced techniques with cardiac MRI to better understand the structural substrate that is associated with the development of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. 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 the Journal of the American Heart Association, American Journal of Cardiology, EP Europace and Clinical Cardiology.
