Dr. John Dodson serves as director of NYU Langone’s Geriatric Cardiology Program. He maintains an active general cardiology practice, which focuses on patients over age 70, and also provides care for patients undergoing cardiac rehabilitation at NYU's Rusk Rehabilitation. He currently is the Principal Investigator for a Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award (K23) from the NIH/NIA and a Mentored Clinical and Population Research Award from the American Heart Association. An Assistant Professor in both the Department of Medicine and the Department of Population Health, he is Board certified in both cardiovascular disease and internal medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine. A recipient of a fellowship in epidemiology from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, he also had a fellowship in geriatrics from Yale University School of Medicine and another fellowship in cardiovascular disease from Yale-New Haven Hospital. His medical degree is from NYU and he has an MPH degree from Harvard. He did his residency at Columbia University Medical Center.

In Part One of this two-part interview, Dr. Dodson discusses: use of cardiac catheterization in frail patients, the associations of incident heart failure with rates of cognitive decline, rehabilitation interventions to deal with slow gait speed, factors involving discharge after transcatheter aortic valve replacement to either the home or a skilled nursing facility, and steps in the discharge process.
