Cardiology is one of the most popular specialties in medicine. Entry to the training program remains highly competitive and potential FITs often go the 'extra mile' to keep up with the competition. Entry to cardiology training in the U.K. is possible following successful completion of the foundation program training (two years) followed by core training program (two years). The latter has two possible routes leading to entry into cardiology training: Core Medical Training (CMT); or Acute Care Common Stem - Acute Medicine.
