About Dr Charles Nelson
I obtained my medical degree the University of New South Wales, graduating in 1989. I have trained at St Vincent's, St George and Prince of Wales hospitals in Sydney. I obtained my specialist cardiologist qualifications in 2003.
In addition, I have obtained subspecialty cardiologist qualifications in the non-invasive cardiac imaging subspecialty of cardiology. I completed a Clinical Research Fellowship and Master of Philosophy in Cardiac Imaging at University of Queensland / Princess Alexandra Hospital / The Wesley Hospital in Brisbane.
I have several scientific publications including in the prestigious Journal of the American College of Cardiology. I have presented my research locally, at the Cardiac Society of Australia and New Zealand, and internationally at the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology.
I have also completed a Clinical Echocardiology Fellowship at Hearts 1st Laboratory at Greenslopes Private Hospital in Brisbane and continued to work at the same site as a consultant cardiologist. I have also worked as a consultant cardiologist at Echo Services laboratory in Perth and at Ryde Hospital in Sydney.
I trained in the exciting new area of CT coronary angiography through CVCTA education with Dr. Tony DeFrance, Clinical Associate Professor in Cardiology at Stanford University School of Medicine. I am now a registered CT Coronary Angiogram Specialist with the Conjoint Committee for the Recognition of Training in CT Coronary Angiography.
In addition to working at Heartmed my Cardiology practice, in Wahroonga, I also work at nearby Sydney Adventist Hospital, PRP Diagnostic Imaging and my Central Coast/Lake Macquarie satellite practice . I look forward to continuing to meet the challenges in cardiology in the 21st century as they continue to unfold.
