Job Description for Physician / Doctor, Cardiologist (Invasive)

The work of a physician who specializes in invasive (or interventional) cardiology revolves around treating patients with heart conditions which require heart catheterization. These physicians are employed primarily in the cardiac units of hospitals and in private practice. While the work is generally carried out during traditional weekly business hours, this physician may be considered “on-call” to work at any time of the day.

Naturally, the position of an invasive cardiologist requires a great deal of formal education. This job requires an undergraduate premedical degree (generally three or four years), and attendance of medical school upon graduation. After graduating medical school (four years), a three-year residency must be fulfilled, followed by board certification. Upon certification, the aspiring invasive cardiologist will undergo three years of internship in cardiology followed by another board examination, which is then followed by a fellowship in invasive cardiography, 150 invasive procedures, and the final board examinations.

An invasive cardiologist specializes in treating a variety of heart and vascular conditions through catheterization – inserting a tube (catheter) into a blood vessel. This process involves a small incision and local anesthetic, typically in the thigh, to allow for a less-invasive procedure than open heart surgery. Invasive cardiologists may also perform balloon angioplasty, implantation of miniature pacemakers, and implantation of defribulators.

Those in this position will also: keep patient records, coordinate medical staff for procedures, prescribe medication, discuss various treatment methods with patients and families, recommend postoperative care, and engage in ongoing education through additional schooling and attending conferences.
