Prior to medicine, Dr Nick Linton obtained a master’s degree in engineering, economics and management from Oxford University. After a period developing new cardiac output monitoring technology, he then studied medicine at King’s College, London and qualified with distinction in 2002.

He obtained membership of the Royal Colleges of Physicians (MRCP) and trained in cardiology at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust (St Mary’s and Hammersmith hospitals), St Thomas’ Hospital and also completed a clinical fellowship in Bordeaux, a world renowned centre for cardiac electrophysiology.

Whilst at St Thomas’ Hospital he completed a PhD, investigating the mapping and ablation of organised atrial arrhythmias. Dr Linton is currently a consultant cardiologist with a special interest in the treatment of heart rhythm disturbances.

He specialises in treatments using cardiac ablation and also implantable cardiac devices. As a cardiologist with a background in engineering, Dr Linton’s research has focussed on the interface between the two disciplines. With collaborators at Imperial College, London,  he invented a new approach to mapping that is now licensed by Imperial Innovations for use in a leading cardiac mapping system.
