​​Dr. Peter Smith’s practice includes a focus on diagnosing and treating conditions related to abnormal heart rhythms. “I enjoy improving patients’ quality of life,” he said. “I work to understand their problems and explain how we can help them.”

​​He came to Marshfield Clinic in 1989, with a background that included study under Dr. Richard Langendorf, who helped to perfect the interpretation of electrocardiogram results; and Dr. Jeremy Ruskin, a leading expert in electrophysiology.

​​Dr. Smith earned his medical degree at Finch University of Health Sciences-Chicago Medical School. He completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at the Mayo School of Graduate Medical Education, Rochester, Minnesota. He completed fellowships in cardiology at the University of Chicago-Michael Reese Hospital & Medical Center; and in clinical cardiac electrophysiology at Harvard University Medical School-Massachusetts General Hospital.

​​He is board-certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease. He shares his knowledge as a clinical associate professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison; and by conducting the annual international “Arrhythmias in the Real World” Conference in Washington D.C., at the headquarters of the American College of Cardiology.
