Dr. Hayes earned his medical degree at Rush University Medical Center-Rush Medical College, Chicago. He completed his residency in internal medicine at the Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education, Rochester, Minnesota; and a fellowship in cardiology and electrophysiology at the University of Washington, Seattle.
