The subject of cardiovascular medicine embraces a very wide range of clinical activities. Cardiology enjoys an unrivalled evidence base of effective preventive and therapeutic options. The new imaging modalities such as magnetic resonance and CT scanning will certainly complement and probably challenge the invasive investigations performed in the cardiac catheter laboratory. 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.
