Dr. James Perry is director of electrophysiology at Rady Children's Hospital San-Diego/UC San Diego School of Medicine, a professor of clinical pediatrics and affiliate professor bioengineering at UC San Diego and a consultant to Kapiolani Women and Children’s Hospital, Honolulu.

Dr. Perry is board certified in pediatric electrophysiology, adult congenital heart disease and electrophysiology. Previously, he was director of pediatric cardiology at Rady Children's and chief of pediatric cardiology at Yale University School of Medicine.

He graduated from Princeton University (A.B., neurobiology) and the University of Rochester School of Medicine (M.D. with Distinction in Research) with additional training at Great Ormond Street, London, and the Massachusetts General Hospital. He then completed his pediatric residency at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, followed by a pediatric cardiology fellowship and Texas Children's Hospital.

Dr. Perry also provides pediatric electrophysiology services to the Hawaii Pacific Health group, based at the Kapi'olani Women and Children's Medical Center in Honolulu.

He is active in clinical and translational research projects on antiarrhythmic drugs, catheter ablation, innovative device designs and translational cardiac research. Currently, Dr. Perry is an NIH-R01 co-investigator on a UC San Diego team investigating computational modeling of heart failure, arrhythmogenesis and biomechanics in congenital heart disease. He is an advisor for the Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine.

Along with his clinical and research responsibilities, Dr. Perry teaches in the Department of Pediatrics and engineering departments of UC San Diego. He is also a former president of the Pediatric and Adult Electrophysiology Society.

Dr. Perry enjoys surfing and swimming and has been active with the Surfrider Foundation and San Diego Coastkeeper groups.
