The specialty area of Sports Medicine encompasses three distinct areas: general Sports Medicine, Athletic Training, and Exercise Physiology. Dr. Erik Van Iterson has served as Editorial Review Group Chair for Exercise Physiology since 2010, even as he moved from the University of Minnesota, to the University of Pennsylvania, back to Minnesota, this time to Mayo Clinic. Over these past five years, we have sent him 118 books and he has reviewed 82 of them for Doody’s Review Service.
Dr. Van Iterson is currently a research fellow in the Division of Cardiovascular Diseases in the Department of Cardiology at Mayo Clinic. He recently finished a research appointment in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine. Dr. Van Iterson received his Doctorate of Philosophy in Exercise Physiology from the University of Minnesota in the spring of 2015. He also earned a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology from the University of Illinois at Chicago and Master of Arts in Biology/Neurobiology from DePaul University. His doctoral training and current research interests lie in the study of peripheral neural mechanisms of exercise intolerance in heart failure patients with reduced (HFrEF) or preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). In this early stage of his career, Dr. Van Iterson has received several awards to attend and present research at major international conferences, which include the annual scientific sessions for the American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association, and American Thoracic Society. Dr. Van Iterson has published as a first author in high impact journals that include the International Journal of Cardiology, Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, and Respiratory Research.
