Personal profile

Dr Steadman trained at the University of Bristol and qualified in 1999. Dr Steadman moved to Birmingham in 2004 for his specialist training in cardiology. This included two years at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham and at three other tertiary cardiac centres in the Midlands. Dr Steadman spent two years as a British Heart Foundation Clinical Research Fellow and six months funded by the National Institute for Health Research investigating the cause of symptoms and exercise intolerance in aortic valve disease using cutting edge cardiovascular imaging techniques.

This resulted in many scientific abstracts and peer reviewed publications in international journals and the resulting thesis was awarded an MD (Doctor of Medicine). Dr Steadman is on the Specialist Register with the General Medical Council for Cardiology and General (Internal) Medicine and specialises in a wide range of cardiovascular problems. He can provide consultations, advice, investigations and treatment. His particular interest is in advanced cardiovascular imaging and non-invasive diagnostics.
