Susan P. Etheridge, MD, FHRS, CEPS-P

2023 - 2026

Dr. Etheridge is a board-certified pediatric electrophysiologist who practices at Boise St. Lukes Medical Center and Stanford Lucile Packard. Since beginning her tenure in Pediatric Cardiology, her research focus has centered on Long QT Syndrome (LQTS) and other genetic disorders leading to sudden death in the young.  She is part of multi-center collaborative projects concerning LQTS, supraventricular tachycardia and WPW, Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. She has actively participated in multicenter projects of genetic conditions associated with sudden death in the young, including Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia (CPVT), Timothy Syndrome, Andersen-Tawil Syndrome, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, CALM LQTS and fetal LQTS.  When invited to speak at local, national, and international meetings, she speaks largely on the genetic susceptibility to sudden death in the young.

Her experience as a pediatric electrophysiologist, a Fellow in the Heart Rhythm Society, past president of the Pediatric and Congenital Arrhythmia Society (PACES), member of the American College of Cardiology Electrophysiology Committee, the ACC ACPC and AHA Young Hearts Council, and the Vice President of the Sudden Arrhythmia Death Foundation underscores her interest in and service to children and adults with arrhythmic disease. She created and led the University of Utah Inherited Arrhythmia clinic, a collaborative clinic that focuses on children and adults with familial sudden death conditions with input from genetics, adult and pediatric electrophysiology and child psychology. As the Vice President of the SADS Foundation she is intimately involved with families with these conditions. Her expertise revolves around clinical assessment, phenotype ascertainment and patient management in the context of interpreting genetic data. She is on the editorial boards of Europace and Heart Rhythm Case Reports.
