Personal bio
A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh Medical School in 1967, Victor F. Froelicher obtained his internship and internal medicine training at Wilford Hall U.S. Air Force Medical Center. He then pursued his fellowship in cardiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. While at the U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine, Dr. Froelicher published numerous works related to exercise physiology and early screening for coronary artery disease in healthy aviators. His angiographic and follow up studies of aviators were critical to the understanding of silent ischemia and the application of Baysian statistics and predictive modeling to diagnostic tests. After eleven years of service in the U.S. Air Force, he joined the faculty at the University of California at San Diego. At UCSD he was the principal investigator of the NIHLBI randomized trial of cardiac rehabilitation called PERFEXT(PERfusion PerFormance EXercise Trial. In 1980, he was the co-founding editor for the Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation. From 1984 to 1992, Dr. Froelicher was Chief of Cardiology at the Long Beach Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Assistant Chief at the University of California, Irvine. At the Long Beach VA, he performed the largest outcomes study in the VA of coronary artery disease. He was the co-principal investigator of a Veterans Affairs cooperative multicenter study of exercise testing and angiography called QUEXTA (QUantitative EXercise Testing and Angiography). In addition to writing several textbooks, Dr. Froelicher has participated in developing exercise testing guidelines for numerous organizations. He is cardiologist to the Stanford athletes and now is focusing on screening athletes for CV risk.
