Quinn Capers, IV, MD, FACC

Dr. Quinn Capers, IVDr. Quinn Capers, IV is an interventional cardiologist, professor of medicine, and the vice dean for faculty affairs in The OSU College of Medicine. He has performed over 4,000 coronary stent procedures, many in heart attack patients, and is an expert at performing these procedures through the radial artery in the patient’s wrist. His physician peers have named him one of America’s “Best Doctors” annually from 2009 to 2019, and he was awarded the 2019 “Professor of the Year” Award for the graduating class of The Ohio State University College of Medicine.


He is a passionate advocate for diversity enhancement in medicine as a strategy to reduce healthcare disparities. In 2017 he joined with other Black male physicians on Twitter to co-found and launch “#BlackMenInMedicine”, a campaign to flood social media (initially Twitter) with images of Black male physicians, and his recent study on implicit bias is the first to document the presence and extent of unconscious racial bias in medical school admissions. He has led workshops that collectively have trained over 1,000 physicians and healthcare providers in strategies to reduce implicit bias, and speaks widely on the topic.


Dr. Capers graduated from Howard University and The Ohio State University College of Medicine before completing his residency in internal medicine and fellowships in vascular biology research, cardiovascular medicine, and interventional cardiology at Emory University.
