Adult Cardiology

ST3-ST7

 

Introduction

Specialty training in adult Cardiology in London allows trainees to see and be a part of the breath of state of the art Cardiology practice.

Cardiology specialty training in London is divided up into three sectors: North East / North West and South Thames. We work closely with Kent Surrey and Sussex with some jobs being shared.

 

Core Training

In the ST3-5 years, training is split between district general and tertiary centres and allows trainees to reach sign off for core cardiology training.   

 

Subspecialty Training

In the ST6 and 7 years of training, subspecialty training is undertaken in interventional cardiology / electrophysiology / devices / adult congenital heart disease / all imaging modalities / heart failure / inherited heart disease. The majority of subspecialty training is in tertiary centres.

 

Opportunities for Research

Many trainees take advantage of the active research programmes at these units to take time out of training to undertake a higher research degree, which is both encouraged and supported.

 

Rotations

There are a variable number of jobs available each year in the different London sectors.
