After completing my training in Pediatric Cardiology at SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital, I went to gain experience at the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit of Royal Brompton Hospital in London (United Kingdom), one of the biggest in Europe in this speciality. The following year I started working at Leeds General Infirmary (Leeds, United Kingdom), where I started my career as a consultant in the Pediatric Cardiology Department. During this period, I developed a great interest in advanced imaging and I completed a six-month fellowship at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London (United Kingdom), where I learnt how to conduct cardiac magnetic resonance studies and which I started to apply in Leeds before returning to Barcelona to continue this sub-speciality at Sant Joan de Déu since 2014.
