    Geoff Tison, M.D. M.P.H. is a Cardiologist and an Assistant Professor in the Division of Cardiology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Dr. Tison earned his Sc.B. in Neuroscience at Brown University and received his M.D. and M.P.H. degrees from the Johns Hopkins Schools of Medicine and Public Health. He completed internal medicine residency at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, and subsequently completed fellowships in clinical cardiology, advanced echocardiography and preventive cardiology at UCSF. He also served as the first UCSF “Digital Cardiology” fellow, where his efforts were focused on validating and improving various digital, mobile and medical-device-based technologies to achieve the greatest impact in clinical care and medical research.

    Research Interests: Dr. Tison brings expertise in clinical research, advanced machine learning algorithms and digital health to bear to further his research goals in cardiovascular disease prevention. An expert in machine learning and artificial intelligence as applied to medicine, he obtained formal training in epidemiology, statistical methods, machine learning and clinical research during his tenure at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and as a National Institutes of Health T32 scholar. He has led multiple research projects in large cohorts such as the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis and the Women’s Health Initiative. Dr. Tison is an investigator in the UCSF Health eHeart study and leads several clinical research studies at UCSF. Dr. Tison’s current interests include applying machine learning and deep-learning techniques to large-scale electronic health data from heterogeneous sources in order to achieve the goal of personalized cardiovascular prognosis and disease prevention.

    Clinical Interests: Dr. Tison is a non-invasive cardiologist with expertise in preventive cardiology and advanced echocardiography, including applications of transesophageal echocardiography in structural interventions such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
