January 24th, 2020 – Cardio-Oncology Consultant Leading in Education & Training

The Hatter Cardiovascular Institute is at the forefront of cardio-oncology research. With awareness of the detrimental effects chemotherapy has on a patient’s heart, this rapidly evolving field of medicine aims to develop new methods to detect cardiovascular damage and subsequently provide protection during treatment.

*Lead – UK Cardio-Oncology curriculum design

*Lead – Education and Training at the British Cardio-Oncology Society

*Lead – UK’s first and only national Cardio-Oncology Course which has now become a BCS course

*Organiser – Europe’s first and only Cardio-Oncology Course

*Member – ESC Council of Cardio-Oncology

Dr Ghosh recently visited the Tata Medical Centre in Kolkata, a tertiary cancer centre of excellence providing care to patients across India, Bhutan, Nepal and Bangladesh. With a cardio-oncology service in early development, Dr Ghosh was pleased for the opportunity to assist in the education and training to the team there as they work towards establishing a more permanent clinical service.
