Pioneering Cardiologist

Bruce Logue

The study of the heart hasn't always been high tech. R. Bruce Logue, one of Georgia's first cardiologists, used to ask patients to run up a hill next to Emory Hospital in an attempt to reproduce chest pain.

Technology would improve the practice, and from his days as a military cardiologist during World Ward II to a twenty-three-year run as chief of cardiology at Emory Hospital and The Emory Clinic (which he helped found), Logue was a national leader in cardiology teaching, research, and patient care.

Logue established the first cardiology fellowship program at both Emory University and Grady hospitals and was founding president of the Georgia Heart Association.
