The fellow will rotate on a 3-monthly basis through the cardiomyopathy, inherited arrhythmia and aortopathy firms.

The Fellow will be responsible for seeing patients and families in consultant-led outpatient clinics, the investigation and day-to-day management of acute inpatients and the continuing care of current patients.
