Dr Tomos Walters Cardiologist

MBBS (HONS) | BMedSc | PhD | FRACP

Electrophysiologist Cardiologist

Dr Tomas Walters practices as a consultant cardiologist, with expertise in the field of cardiac electrophysiology and arrhythmia management. His clinical interests include catheter ablation of complex atrial and ventricular arrhythmia, plus implantation and management of cardiac devices. He has special interest in looking at the link between a patient's psychosocial state, and feedback around lifestyle factors and their arrhythmia burden. He also has great vision of using app-based technology to give patients real-time feedback and ultimately, improve their cardiac health outcomes. 

Dr Walters gained his medical degree with first class honours from The University of Melbourne, in addition to a Bachelor of Medical Science in medical virology. He undertook his medical residency at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and his advanced training in cardiology at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane. He undertook a clinical fellowship in cardiac electrophysiology at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and a PhD studying the electric mechanisms underlying atrial fibrillation at the University of Melbourne. 

Dr Walters subsequently moved to San Francisco where he completed his clinical and research training, prior to being appointed an Assistant Professor at the University of California. There, Dr Walters continued with his research on persistent atrial fibrillation and cardiomyopathy induced by ventricular ectopic beats.

Dr Walters has published extensively in leading cardiology journals, published multiple book chapters and has frequently presented at international conferences.

In 2019, Dr Walters returned to Australia, initially to a staff specialist position at The Prince Charles Hospital, and now as a cardiologist and electrophysiologist with QCG.
