Alvaro Alonso, MD joined the Tulane University Heart and Vascular Institute’s faculty in 2012 and is already making an impact on our team and our community. Dr. Alonso hails from Mexico City, where he received his MD with special commendation from Universidad Panamericana School of Medicine, before moving north to Boston, Massachusetts, where he did his internship and residency at Tufts-New England Medical Center (now Tufts Medical Center). He also completed his Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology fellowships at the University of Massachusetts / UMass Memorial Medical Center, followed by a fellowship in Vascular Medicine and Endovascular interventions at Tufts University / St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center of Boston. His research interests include acute coronary syndromes, cardiovascular disease in chronic kidney disease patients, contrast-induced acute kidney injury, peripheral vascular disease, evidence-based medicine, and clinical-effectiveness. He is actively engaged in the development of our transradial cardiac catheterization program, and in the integration of cardiac catheterization virtual simulations as part of the educational curriculum for our fellows in training. Dr. Alonso was a recipient of the LA CaTS (Louisiana Clinical and Translational Science Center) Roadmap Scholars career-development award in 2013, which provides him with support to pursue a Master in Science degree and perform a state-of-the-art translational research study on the management of myocardial infarction.
