Dr Andreas Kyriacou graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2001 and in the following years he acquired clinical experience as a junior doctor in Edinburgh and London. In 2007, he was awarded the Walport Academic Clinical Fellowship in Cardiology by the NIHR and subsequently trained in Cardiology and subspecialised in Cardiac arrhythmias in London.
He worked at St Marys and Hammersmith Hospitals of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, where he also carried out research (awarded a 3-year clinical research training fellowship by the BHF) in complex cardiac pacemakers at the International Centre for Circulatory Health. He explored the physiological effects of complex pacing on heart function and developed treatments to improve patient outcomes. This work led to a number of high impact publications and was recognised by the European Society of Cardiology Heart Failure Association (Winner of the Young Investigator in Clinical Research, 2012) and the British Heart Rhythm Society (Runner up in the Young Investigator Competition, 2012). His research findings were also presented in 2011 and 2012 at the ‘SET for Britain’ ceremonies, hosted by the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee at Westminster.
He concluded his training in cardiac arrhythmias at the Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals where he focused on the ablation of complex arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardias in a variety of complex patient groups.
He was appointed as a Consultant at Shefffield Teaching Hospitals in 2015
