CardiologyInvolves the care of patients with heart disease and covers a wide range of clinical activities. Management can involve interventional treatment and cardiac imaging and draws on a large evidence base of effective preventative and therapeutic options. Medicine Home
The expert clinical management of patients with heart failure, cardiomyopathy or atrial fibrillation is as rewarding as the quasi-surgical skills demanded of the coronary or electrophysiological interventionalist. If you are decisive, energetic, interested in effective therapies, and enjoy working in a team that includes specialist nurses, cardiac physiologists and cardiac surgeons, then cardiology may well be the Specialty for you.
