Education: Dr. Cummings is a graduate of the Northeast Ohio Universities College of Medicine, Rootstown, Ohio. She completed her internal medicine internship and residency with Summa Health System, Akron, Ohio, followed by a cardiovascular disease fellowship with The MetroHealth System, Case Western Reserve University College of Medicine, Cleveland, where she was selected chief fellow in her final year. She pursued her subspecialty training as an electrophysiology fellow at Cleveland Clinic where she again served as chief fellow in her final year of training. After her fellowship, Dr. Cummings remained at Cleveland Clinic for two years as director of Electrophysiology Research and the AF Innovation Center Preclinical Research Facility.

Before she joined the Mercy Hospital medical staff in 2015, Dr. Cummings was an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Toledo Medical Center, Medical College of Ohio.

About Dr. Cummings: “Having the knowledge and ability to make a positive difference in a person’s life is one of the greatest privileges there is. One of the reasons I love electrophysiology so much is because of the many opportunities it presents to help people live better, longer, healthier lives. This can be as simple as helping reassure a patient with an irregular heart beat or as serious as preventing sudden cardiac death.”

Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 4/25/2024, Dr. Cummings has reported the financial relationships with the companies listed below.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.
