“Since the start of my career, cardiovascular medicine and intervention has embraced innovation and the pace of progress in advancing heart health care for our patients has been huge, making it a truly exciting and privileged specialty to be practicing. With these learning challenges to take on, my enthusiasm and passion for cardiology has also grown and I believe continues to shape me as a person, both within and outside the clinic”
