Steven Colan MD

I grew up in a small town in western Nebraska and had little exposure to the world of medicine prior to my undergraduate years in Boston. 

I had always loved mathematics and physics but as I approached my graduation from MIT, I was uncertain where I was going from there. I had never really considered a career in medicine until I had the good fortune to meet a practicing physician (my future mother-in-law, as it turned out) who so inspired me with her relentless dedication to the global well-being of her patients that I knew this was the path I needed to follow. My background in mathematics and engineering permitted me to bring a little different approach to the practice of medicine than was common at the time. However, it was the balanced view of medicine I had learned from my mentor that influenced me the most. I grew to understand that patients are more than people with a medical problem, they are persons with aspirations and inspirations whose primary goal is to achieve the highest possible quality of life, whether that relates to their underlying cardiac disease or not. My personal philosophy of care is that the responsibility to the physician is to not simply deliver disease-oriented medical care, but rather to balance the risks and benefits of medical care in order to enable their patients to maximize their current and future enjoyment of life.

Professional History

Dr. Colan obtained his undergraduate degrees in mathematics and philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, followed by medical degree from Boston University. His pediatric internship and residency took place at Massachusetts General Hospital, following which he stayed on as Chief Resident for an additional year. He then moved across town to Boston Children’s Hospital for a fellowship in Pediatric Cardiologist and then stayed on as a staff cardiologist with the Department of Cardiology. His roles within the department have included echocardiography, clinical cardiologist subspecializing in cardiomyopathy, and a clinical researcher. He sees patients with congenital heart disease but primarily specializes in heart muscle disease, including hypertrophic, dilated, and restrictive cardiomyopathies and secondary forms of cardiomyopathy related to muscular dystrophy, cancer therapy, and genetic syndromes. He served as director of the Division of Noninvasive Cardiology from 1994 to 2006, as Associate Chief of Cardiology from 2006-2015, and is now the Director of Clinical Research. Dr. Colan’s research has centered non-invasive methods for assessing cardiac disease including cardiomyopathy and the clinical evaluation, natural history, and response to therapy in the various forms of cardiomyopathy.
