Kirsten.Fleischmann@ucsf.edu

Dr. Kirsten Fleischmann is a cardiologist specializing in echocardiography and non-invasive cardiology. In addition, her research looks at the relationship between noninvasive testing in cardiology and its outcome, the development and evaluation of efficient diagnostic and treatment strategies in acute ischemic syndromes, and the effect of secondhand smoke on outcomes in cardiac disease such as heart failure and acute ischemic syndromes.


Fleischmann earned her medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Mo. She went on to receive a masters in public health from Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Mass. Fleischmann came to UCSF in 1998, where she is a professor and an attending physician.


Clinical interests:
Dr. Kirsten Fleischmann is a cardiologist specializing in echocardiography and non-invasive cardiology. Her clinical interests include evaluation of chest pain, cardiovascular care around the time of noncardiac surgery, women's cardiovascular health and prevention of heart disease. She earned her medical degree from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Mo. and went on to receive a Master of Public Health from the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Mass.


Research interests:
Dr. Fleischmann is a cardiovascular epidemiologist and outcomes researcher. Her research looks at the relationship between noninvasive testing in cardiology and patient outcomes, both in preventing disease and treating it. She is also interested in development and evaluation of efficient diagnostic and treatment strategies for chest pain and acute ischemic syndromes, best practices for cardiovascular care around the time of a noncardiac surgery, and the effect of secondhand smoke on outcomes in cardiac disease such as heart failure. Her work has been supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health, the American Society of Echocardiography, the American College of Cardiology and others. Because of her interest in perioperative medicine, she has served on several national guideline committees convened by the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology on this topic, most recently as Chair or Vice Chair.
