Between January 1999 to October 2003, I was working in well established, high volume tertiary Cardiac hospitals (Southern Railway Headquarters Hospital, Perambur, Chennai and Madras Medical Mission Hospital, Chennai) and was doing over 2000 Echocardiograms including pediatric and adult, and dobutamine stress studies per year and average of 500 diagnostic angiograms and Cardiac Catheterization, 200 angioplasties, 150 Balloon mitral valvuloplasties, 30 peripheral angioplasties including carotid and renal angioplasties, 30 pace maker implantation and 10 ICDs / CRTs per year.In 2003, I moved with Dr K M Cherian, MS, FRACS, DSc. from Madras Medical Mission Hospital, Chennai, to help him set up the Cardiology Units of Frontier Lifeline Hospital in Mogappair, Chennai, and in St Gregorios Hospital, Parumala, Kerala. These Centers developed into high volume tertiary Cardiac hospitals over the next few years. From January 2008 to March 2018, I was working with Chettinad Hospital and Research Institute, a Medical University, in a semi urban/rural area, in the outskirts of Chennai, and was entrusted with setting up and developing a new Cardiac Unit. The Department has grown over the last 10 years and has been recognized by the Medical Council of India, for imparting Superspeciality(DM) training in Cardiology from August, 2013 with an annual intake of 2 students. The Department also conducts 4yr B.Sc, Allied Health Sciences (Cardiac Technology and Cathlab Technology) courses with an annual intake of 12 students, and 2yr M.Sc, (Cardiac Imaging and Echocardiography) course with an annual intake of 6 students.The Department is recognized for conducting PhD courses in Cardiology by the University and had 4 students doing Doctoral research under me. I was performing about 300 Angioplasties, 100 Valvuloplasties, 50 Peripheral Angioplasties, 50 Device Implantations (Pacemakers/ICDs/CRTs), and 50 Device Closures(ASD/PDA/RSOV/AV Fistulas etc) annuallyI am presently (from March 26th) working with MIOT Hospitals, a 1000 bedded Multi-Superspeciality Hospital in Chennai. Given my past experience in setting up and developing Cardiology departments in the previous hospitals, I have been given the mandate to improve the Cardiology Department and the teaching infrastructure to the level of standard needed for accreditation with the National Board of Examinations in Cardiology superspeciality
