Hi, my name is Eric Frischhertz. I'm a Cardiologist in Austin, Texas with and I'm here to answer the question of what are the working conditions of a Pediatric Cardiologist. The first thing to notice that I am an Adult Cardiologist so, in my opinion it's only based on what I did in my training during fellowship which is very limited. But from my experience, the working conditions of a Pediatric Cardiologist are relatively tough and that the children that you treat are tend to be very sick and a lot of the practice is based in the hospital. There also is a very emotional component to dealing with, sometimes terminally ill children which can be somewhat depressing and their Cardiologist needs to understand that dealing, not only with the child whose the patient, but also with the family as a paramount importance and this can be a very difficult challenge. And personally, I think that the Pediatric Cardiologist is a very difficult role but a necessary one.
