Dr. James Perry is director of electrophysiology and adult congenital heart programs at Rady Children's Hospital San-Diego/UC San Diego and a professor of pediatrics UC San Diego. He is one of only two ABIM-certified adult congenital heart disease specialists in San Diego, Imperial and Riverside counties.

Previously, he was director of pediatric cardiology at Rady Children's and chief of pediatric cardiology at Yale University School of Medicine.

After attending Princeton University and the University of Rochester School of Medicine, he completed his pediatric residency at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, followed by a pediatric cardiology fellowship and Texas Children's Hospital.

Dr. Perry is part of the UC San Diego/Rady Children's team that provides pediatric cardiac 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, adult congenital heart arrhythmias, innovative device designs, and program development. Currently, Dr. Perry is an NIH-R01 co-investigator on a UC San Diego team investigating computational modeling of congenital heart disease.

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.

In his spare time, Dr. Perry enjoys surfing and has been active with the Surfrider Foundation.
