The Opportunities

MonashHeart is truly a unique workplace for cardiac physiologists with an enthusiasm for working in a hugely diversified service. The most amazing of complex cardiac conditions are seen here every day; from the pregnant woman with heart failure, to the 25 year old with endocarditis, to the 60 year old with atrial myxoma.

Video Testimonials

As Steve our chief cardiac physiologist said, “Where else do I get to go from scanning a 200kg patient to being urgently called to the neonatal intensive care unit to scan premature baby Taylor weighing just 400 grams?”

Our cardiac physiologists provide access to the full range of cardiac services for patients of all ages across three sites including:

MonashHeart Clayton

  • adult and paediatric echocardiography (TTE, TOE, stress echo, dobutamine echo)
  • two interventional cardiac catheterisation laboratories (providing the busiest 24/7 STEMI services in Victoria)
  • one cardiac rhythm cardiac catheterisation laboratory
  • 12-lead ECG, ambulatory blood pressure monitoring
  • Holter monitoring
  • loop monitoring
  • exercise stress testing
  • device monitoring clinics
  • home monitoring

MonashHeart Dandenong

Education, training and research

Education of our cardiac physiologist team is highly valued by the whole multidisciplinary team.

As a junior physiologist you will progress through various stages of training from basic ECG interpretation through to the ‘how to’ of performing all the non-invasive physiology tests. Once you have mastered these skills a trainee will progress to training in the cardiac catheter laboratory. Here you will learn all about how to support the cardiologist while he/she is performing angiograms and placing stents. You are taught advanced life saving techniques and how to set-up and run equipment used during emergency heart attack cases. From this junction you are able to further specialise in cardiac rhythm management, electrophysiology or echocardiography.

We are proud of our highly experienced and skilled educators and clinical coaches who along with our cardiologists and industry representatives, proactively support education sessions, from basic training to advanced skill development.

Candidate prerequisites

  • Basic science degree (eg. human movement or sport physiology)
  • Victorian driver’s licence
  • Willingness to undertake post graduate education
