Cardiology is the branch of medicine concerning the heart which deals with the structure, the function and diseases of the heart and cardiac circulation. In German-speaking countries “cardiologist” is a title protected by a code of professional conduct, which doctors are only entitled to use if they have gained and demonstrated specific knowledge in the field of cardiology as part of specialist advanced training.
