Christopher Cheung is a Cardiologist and Cardiac Electrophysiologist with a strong interest in cardiac electrophysiology, and electrophysiology research. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Alberta, and his medical school, internal medicine, and cardiology at the University of British Columbia. He completed a Masters of Public Health in Epidemiology at Harvard University and the Clinician Investigator Program at the University of British Columbia. He completed a Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology fellowship at the University of California San Francisco.
Dr. Cheung has clinical experience in complex ablations (including atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia), and in the management of inherited arrhythmia syndromes. Specific techniques include endocardial and epicardial catheter ablation, and implantable devices. Christopher is board-certified across American and Canadian boards (ABIM, FRCPC).
In his research, Dr. Cheung focuses on atrial fibrillation and complex arrhythmia management, wearable devices, and digital health. He has participated in numerous clinical trials, including leading trials in atrial fibrillation monitoring. He has received the Canadian Cardiovascular Society-Bayer Vascular Award, Cardiac Arrhythmia Network of Canada CHAT Discovery Award, and the American College of Cardiology Young Investigator Award. His wearable device and digital health research involves the evaluation of novel devices for arrhythmia monitoring, decentralized clinical studies, and the use of machine learning tools.
Dr. Cheung serves on the Editorial Board of the Canadian Journal of Cardiology and Canadian Journal of Cardiology Open, and as a Primary Panel member of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society/Canadian Heart Rhythm Society Atrial Fibrillation Guidelines and Canadian Cardiovascular Society Drive and Fly Guidelines. He completed his term as Chair of the Trainee Committee Chair of the Canadian Cardiovascular Society, and currently serves on the Education Council of the Heart Rhythm Society.
Dr. Cheung is appointed as an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto, Associate Scientist at the Sunnybrook Research Institute, and Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of California San Francisco.
