Cardiology deals with diseases of the heart and circulatory system. Higher Specialist Training Cardiology is a 6 year training programme which is intended to produce fully trained Cardiologists who will follow one of two paths.  The decision as to which path to follow will be made after 4 years of Basic Cardiology, which all trainees will complete. Cardiologists may wish to engage on a particular aspect such as cardiac ultrasound, electrophysiology, adult congenital heart disease, or preventive cardiology (RCPI – November 2013)
