Quinn Capers IV, MD
Quinn Capers IV, MD, is an interventional cardiologist, professor of medicine, and the vice dean for faculty affairs at The Ohio State University (OSU) College of Medicine. He has performed over 4,000 coronary stent procedures, many in acute MI patients, and is radial-first operator. His physician peers have named him one of “America’s Top Doctors” annually from 2009 to 2019, and he was awarded the 2019 Professor of the Year Award by the graduating class of The OSU College of Medicine.
Capers is a passionate advocate for diversity enhancement in medicine as a strategy to reduce healthcare disparities. In 2017 he co-founded and launched #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. Capers has led workshops that collectively have trained over 1,000 physicians and healthcare providers in strategies to reduce implicit bias, and he speaks widely on the topic.
Capers graduated from Howard University and The OSU College of Medicine before completing his residency in internal medicine and fellowships in vascular biology research, cardiovascular medicine, and interventional cardiology at Emory University.
