Male cardiologists earn approximately 15% more than their female counterparts, according to a new report from Medscape. 

Expanding Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has led to some improvements in cardiovascular care for underserved racial and ethnic patient populations—but there is still plenty of room for improvement.

This continues a steady rise in pay for the specialty—the same report recorded cardiology’s average salary as $430,000 in 2019, $423,000 in 2018 and $410,000 in 2017.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) age-adjusted mortality rates (AAMRs) were higher in rural areas than larger metropolitan areas from 1999 to 2017, according to new research published in JAMA.

New legislation has been introduced that would forgive student loan debt for frontline healthcare workers who have provided patient care during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“We were just blown away and so impressed to see this level of interest and commitment from the teams submitting such thorough proposals so quickly,” said AHA President Robert A. Harrington, MD.

The high mortality rates from COVID-19 among black patients and other racial/ethnic minorities put a much-needed spotlight on the “deep-rooted failures” of the U.S. healthcare system to improve care for cardiovascular disease (CVD), according to a new commentary.

The American Medical Association (AMA) has published new guidelines to help physicians provide care during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

CMS has announced that healthcare providers in communities experiencing low numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases may be able to once again provide more in-person care unrelated to the virus.

One side effect of this unprecedented time is that many fourth-year medical students are being asked to join the pandemic’s front lines before they have even graduated.

The American Medical Association (AMA) has published two new documents designed to help physicians affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Healthcare providers should use caution when considering the treatment of COVID-19 patients with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin if the patients have cardiovascular disease.
