Job Description

  • Cardiologists are the doctor s of heart. They treat patients with many different medical conditions. For example, they may treat patients with heart defects, heart infections, heart arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats), or hypertension (high blood pressure).
  • After diagnosing the problem, the cardiologist begins treatments. This often involves prescribing medication for the patient. Sometimes it also means advising the patient to make some lifestyle changes. For example, a patient may need to get more exercise, eat healthier food, and stop smoking.

Working conditions

  • Cardiologists usually work in hospitals and medical clinics. Some are self-employed and run their own clinics or offices. Local travel between medical offices and hospitals may be required for cardiologists to see and treat their patients. - Like other doctors, cardiologists work long hours. Most put in between 50 and 60 hours a week, although some work even longer hours. They are often required to work evenings and weekends in order to accommodate their patients. 


  • The first step in becoming a cardiologist is to complete at least 2 to 3 years of a bachelor’s degree at university, including several required science courses. This is the minimum requirement for admission to medical school.
  • Once you have earned a bachelor’s degree, you usually need to write the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).
