Dominic J.R. Abrams | Professional History
I received my medical education and post-graduate training in the United Kingdom, specializing in cardiology and electrophysiology. My fellowships were in both pediatric and adult cardiology, and in 2007 I was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, the largest adult electrophysiology center in the UK, and also continued to perform pediatric electrophysiology at Great Ormond Street Hospital. This dual appointment allowed for detailed evaluation of all family members with varying inherited cardiac condition, including ion channel disorders and cardiomyopathies. In Boston we have developed a rapid access Inherited Cardiac Arrhythmia Program for all patients with a confirmed or suspected inherited/genetic component to their condition, which runs between Boston Children’s and Brigham & Women’s Hospitals allowing for continued clinical care within the family irrespective of age. Patients are comprehensively investigated, including clinical and genetic diagnosis and risk stratification, and appropriate management strategies implemented, including cascade screening across extensive families. We are currently developing a major collaboration with colleagues across New England.
As an adult and pediatric electrophysiologist I also have extensive experience in the management of arrhythmias in the adult congenital population and this has been a major area of clinical and research activity.
