Cardiologists are licensed doctors for the heart, arteries and veins, who diagnose and treat cardiovascular diseases. Cardiologists can have one or more cardiology specializations like nuclear cardiology, echocardiography, interventional cardiology or electrophysiology.
The duties and responsibilities of a cardiologist depend on their training, but no matter what sub-specialization they have, cardiologists perform similar tasks like giving patients diagnoses, maintaining patient records or collaborating with other doctors regarding patient diagnosis and treatment. These medical professionals provide emergency care, offer prescriptions and inform patients regarding their medication. They also provide patients with heart care and preventive measures that patients need to respect.
Start off with your name, address and contact details at the head of your cardiologist resume. After that, you need to add a short introduction describing what the cardiologist position means to you and the qualifications' summary emphasizing your best skills. After this, you have to add a strong and eye catching objective. This should be a brief sentence which should describe your goals in Health Care and it should reflect your interest in this position.

Present what your duties and tasks were in every position, how you helped your department progress and how you offered quality health care service to patients. Your last section has to focus on your education. Again, you have to add education from the last training or qualification. A successful applicant is required to have at a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree in cardiology or other related field.
