HISTORY
 
Our department was established in 1997. Until 1999 years, the clinical management was provided by two academic cardiologists (Ahmet Altinbas MD and Abdullah Dogan MD).  In October 1999, all technical and medical equipments were completed. Coronary angiography laboratory was opened and begun to give the service in Sevket Demirel Heart Center in the center of city. In February 2012,  our department was moved to main hospital in the University campus. Cardiology clinic, angiography laboratory and coronary care units are located in the second and third floors of main hospital C block. Outpatient clinic and laboratories are located in 11th  part of polyclinic building. Our department continues to give medical care for patients with cardiovascular disease who are living in the province of Isparta and its around (Burdur, Dinar, Sandikli, Basmakci and Serik etc).  Our mission is to provide modern, evidence-based and contemporary health care to our patients. At the same time, our clinic performs primary health support and information about cardiovascular diseases. Angiography and hemodynamics laboratory has been active 24 hours a day since October 1999. In June 2011, a new real-time three dimensional Doppler echocardiography device was started to be used for better examination of valvular and anatomic disorders of heart. Our clinic consists of 6 professors, one assistant professor and 6 cardiology residents.
 
LOCATION and CAPACITY
 
Our inpatient clinic is located in second and third floors of C block. There are 49 beds in cardiology department; 23 beds in cardiology service, 10 in coronary intensive care unit and 16 in angiography service. In cardiology service there are 5 private rooms. Outpatient service contains echocardiography, rhythm and blood pressure Holter monitoring machines, Tilt testing and exercise stress testing. There are four echocardiography devices (one portable device) in clinic and one of them is used in coronary care unit. Two of the echo devices have real-time three dimensional echocardiographic imaging quality.
 
TRAINING INTERVAL FOR RESIDENTS
 
Training time for cardiology specialty is 4 year according to the last regulation of  Ministry of Health legacies. Within this interval, residents perform all cardiologic invasive and non-invasive procedures. Examination and follow up of patients are main mandatories of residents. They learn performing and interpreting of echocardiography, holter, Tilt test and exercise stress test technics. Carrying out, interpreting of invasive cardiac procedures and treatment options are learned in angiography laboratory. Our residents are;
 
1-     Ibrahim ERSOY, MD
 
2-     Fatih AKSOY, MD
 
3-     Fatih KAHRAMAN, MD
 
4-     Serdar GULER, MD
 
5-     Tulay OSKAY, MD
 
6-     Ismail Barkin ISIK, MD
