Internal Medicine - Cardiology

Cardiologists diagnose and treat defects and diseases of the cardiovascular system, including the heart, blood vessels, and the circulation of blood through the body.

Those cardiologists who become interested in full-time subspecialization in cardiology - in areas such as pediatric cardiology, nuclear cardiology, or catheterization - usually practice in university hospitals or large medical centers.

Invasive cardiologists, who run cardiac-catheterization labs, are among the highest paid physicians and comprise three-quarters of all cardiologists.
