Mark E. Josephson, M.D., (born 1943) is an American cardiologist and writer and was in the 1970s one of the American pioneers of the medical cardiology subspecialty of cardiac electrophysiology. His classic text, Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology: Techniques and Interpretations, is widely acknowledged the definitive treatment of the discipline. Josephson currently serves as chief of cardiology at Harvard University's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.[1]


Dr. Josephson is a graduate of Trinity College and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. He completed his residency training at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City and his fellowship training in cardiology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.[2]

After spending two years as a research associate with Dr. Anthony Damato at the Staten Island Public Health Service Hospital, he published articles on the electrophysiologic basis and anatomic location of AV nodal reentry and map-guided subendocardial resection to cure ventricular tachycardia, a procedure Time dubbed "the Pennsylvania Peel" in honor of the Penn cardiology department's surgical innovation.[3]

Josephson has worked closely over the years with European cardiac electrophysiology pioneer Hein J. J. Wellens, M.D., chief of cardiology emeritus at the University of Limburg in Maastrict, Netherlands.

Dr. Josephson has published over 300 original journal articles and book chapters and is the author of the fundamental textbook of clinical cardiac electrophysiology, Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology: Techniques and Interpretations.[4]

Throughout his career at Penn and more recently at Harvard, Josephson has inspired hundreds of cardiac electrophysiologists to enter and further develop the comparatively young field.[5]
