Conversations With Kohli | Matters of the Heart: Engaging the Next Generation of Cardiologists
As an interventionalist, you can take someone on death's door and turn them with your treatment. As an electrophysiologist, you can prevent or treat a life-threatening arrhythmia that would otherwise lead to a sudden unexpected death. As a preventive cardiologist, you can use all the tools in your toolkit to prevent someone's loved one from having a heart attack or stroke before it changes their life forever. As a cardiac imager, you can literally look into someone's heart and tailor therapy and guide management. As a cardiac researcher, you can choose your passion, from cell culture to large-scale clinical trials.
Cardiology, as a field, spans the spectrum of care from prevention to imaging to intervention to critical care. And, in a single day, I often find myself doing all of these. I'm in the ICU in the morning and on consult rounds afterwards, followed by time in the clinic and then finish the day reading echoes and nukes nuclear studies.
Such versatility and variety is hard to come by in any other medical field. So then, why are fewer and fewer people choosing clinical cardiology as a profession?
And why are some others leaving the field for good after only a few years in practice? Is it the hours and the stress? Or is it that the grass appears greener in nonclinical medicine?
See a Problem?
Or is there a perceived misconception that the "work-life" balance does not exist for cardiologists? We're losing top medical school trainees and colleagues to other fields, including other fields in medicine such as dermatology , as well as nonmedical fields such as venture capital, consulting and pharmaceutical companies.
