We certainly can't let Heart Month pass us by without exploring the role of the cardiologist! Cardiologists are physicians who treat defects and diseases of the heart and arteries. They initially study and train in internal medicine, and then subspecialize in cardiology by completing an additional three years of training, called a fellowship.

Did you know that there are many different types of cardiologists? Each type of cardiologist has a slightly different type of practice, and some do more advanced procedures than others. Some cardiologists focus more on prevention and management of chronic heart disease, and other cardiologists spend more time performing procedures to repair acute heart problems. Most cardiologists treat adults primarily, but pediatric cardiologists specialize in treating children who may have been born with a heart defect or who have other heart issues. Find out more about this exciting and challenging physician career in the cardiologist career profile.

I have always wanted to become a cardiologist because of my heart condition as a little baby. The doctors said I had heart murmuring. I would like to help kids who have the same problem as I do. I still have the heart murmuring after I work out and split wood. I would like to know what classes I should take in High School and College. Since I am in 7th grade, I am learning all I can to become a cardiologist. Heard it was hard work to get in. I am all ready for hard work if I can help a child with heart problems.:)
