Dr. David Schwartz was a noted pediatric cardiologist within the Division of Cardiology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. After completing his fellowship, he served as the Director of the Catheterization Laboratory and Associate Division Chief at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. In 1988, he became Chief of the Division of Cardiology and served in that role until 1996. His particular area of subspecialty interest was in the field of cardiac catheterization.

He helped train numerous cardiology fellows in the fields of both general cardiology and cardiac catheterization, many of whom are considered to be leading national experts in pediatric cardiology.
