Gordon Fung, MD, MPH, PhD


I am a Clinical Professor of Medicine in the Clinical Health Sciences Tract. In addition to an active clinical practice in consultative general clinical cardiology, I also am medical director of the Electrocardiography Lab at Moffit/Long Hospitals, and the nation's first UCSF Asian Heart & Vascular Center located on the Mount Zion Campus on the 5th floor of the Hospital Building. My research interests are in health disparities primarily involving the Asian/Pacific Islander populations as well as clinical hypertension and prevention.
