Eric M Bader, MD, is a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist at Yale New Haven Hospital. Dr. Bader graduated from NYU School of Medicine with Honors. He completed his internship and residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where he received the Leo M. Davidoff Society “Outstanding Achievement in the Teaching of Medical Students” award and served as a Chief Resident.

Dr. Bader went on to a fellowship in cardiovascular diseases at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s – Roosevelt in New York City and then returned to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine for his subspecialization in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.

Dr. Bader’s clinical practice includes the implantation and management of cardiac devices – pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), for the prevention of sudden cardiac death, and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) to treat heart failure. A member of Yale's internationally recognized lead management team, he performs extractions of infected and malfunctioning pacemakers and defibrillators.  He also performs complex ablations of a broad spectrum of arrhythmias, including supraventricular and ventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, and atrial flutter.

Dr. Bader's research interests include leadless pacing and cardiac resynchronization. Recently, he has been investigating the heart rhythm impact of COVID-19 infection.

Dr. Bader has been an attending physician in the Yale Electrophysiology & Cardiac Arrhythmia Program for the last five years, primarily based out of the New Haven, CT area. He is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, and is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases, and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology. He is also board certified in echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, and vascular imaging.

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
