When not helping innovate therapeutic drugs for the treatment of cardiac disorders and arrhythmias, Peter Kowey, MD, spends much of his creative energies writing.

He served his fellowship in cardiology at the Harvard University School of Public Health and at the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston until 1980, after which he served a cardiovascular medicine and research fellowship at the West Roxbury VA Hospital and Harvard Medical School until 1981. Kowey served in many academic and leadership roles during his career, including as a professor of medicine at the Medical College of Pennsylvania, and as the chief of the division of cardiovascular diseases of the Main Line Health System, beginning in 1990. He is also currently the president and chairman of the board of directors of the Heart Center of Lankenau, Bryn Mawr and Paoli Memorial Hospitals in Pennsylvania. Kowey is also currently a professor of medicine and clinical pharmacology at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia and the William Wilkoff chair in Cardiovascular Research at the Lankenau Institute of Medical Research.
