Posted by Kylie Flament on 6 September 2013

Curious about what makes a cardiologist tick, I asked one of ours, Dr Julian Ayer, a little bit about himself...

Julian's job as a Pediatric Cardiologist involves:

  • Assessing children and adults with heart disease
  • Recommending types of treatment to improve the health of children and young adults with heart disease
  • Obtaining high quality imaging of the heart to allow for planning and preparation of surgical and interventional cather procedures
  • Teaching the next generation of doctors and nurses who will look after children with heart disease
  • Undertaking high quality research to improve the cardiovascular health of children and young adults

When I asked Julian why he became a pediatric cardiologist, he said that it is because it is a job that allows him to undertake the three things he loves about medicine all at once: being a doctor for kids, teaching the next generation of doctors for kids, and research. He said he was lucky enough to work at the Heart Centre for Children because it is a world class facility that also happens to be in his home city of Sydney.

Who could argue with that!
