Dr. Mathew Hutchinson, board certified in cardiovascular disease and clinical cardiac electrophysiology, serves as the director of the Cardiac Electrophysiology Program. He specializes in the treatment of complex heart rhythm disorders, such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. 

Dr. Hutchinson comes to the University of Arizona Health Sciences from the University of Pennsylvania where he was an associate professor of medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine. He completed his medical degree at St. Louis University School of Medicine and his medical residency at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School in Boston. His cardiology and electrophysiology fellowships were completed at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Hutchinson cares for patients with complex arrhythmia disorders, as well as adult congenital heart disease and arrhythmias.  His clinical research activities are centered on developing new techniques to improve procedural outcomes in patients with atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. He is internationally renowned for his work in the use of imaging to characterize arrhythmia substrate in patients with structural heart disease. He has authored or co-authored nearly 100 research publications and serves as a reviewer or editorial board member on numerous publications, including The New England Journal of MedicineCirculationAmerican Journal of CardiologyHeart Rhythm, and the Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology.
