About James Ip, M.D.

James Ip, MD, FACC, FHRS was born and raised in New York City. After graduating summa cum laude from Columbia University, he attended Harvard Medical School. There, he received a Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship, which enabled him to pursue research in cardiovascular genetics and stem cell therapy. He completed his internal medicine residency at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston and returned to New York for his cardiovascular disease and cardiac electrophysiology fellowships at Cornell University Medical Center.While at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Dr. Ip has performed thousands of procedures, including catheter ablations of arrhythmias and implantation of cardiac devices (such as pacemakers, defibrillators and biventricular devices). He is one of the leading implanters in New York of the recently developed subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillators (S-ICD).With over forty peer-reviewed journal publications, Dr. Ip has authored many articles in the field of cardiac electrophysiology involving cardiac implantable device diagnostics, catheter ablation techniques and mechanisms of arrhythmias.  He is the principal investigator at Cornell for the multicenter trial to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the first leadless cardiac pacemaker system. Dr. Ip also maintains an active research focus on arrhythmia mechanisms, including the development of an animal model of ventricular tachycardia to elucidate the basic understanding of this type of condition. He was a recipient of the 2015 Weill Cornell Medical College Department of Medicine Investigator Award, which is given to faculty who perform on outstanding levels in the areas of biomedical research.Dr. Ip teaches medical students, residents and fellows at Cornell.
