ABOUT THE AUTHOR


DR WARRICK BISHOP

Warrick Bishop is a practicing cardiologist with an interest in cardiovascular disease prevention and a special interest in cardiac CT imaging, lipid management and eating guidelines.

He graduated from the University of Tasmania, School of Medicine in 1988. He worked in the Northern Territory and subsequently commenced his specialist training in South Australia. He completed his advanced training in cardiology in Tasmania, becoming a fellow of the Royal Australian College of Physicians (RACP) in 1997.

He has worked predominantly in private practice, combined with public sessions. In 2009 Warrick undertook training in CT Cardiac Coronary Angiography, being the first cardiologist in Tasmania with this specialist recognition. This area of imaging fits well with his interest in preventative cardiology. He holds level B certification with the Australian Joint Committee for CCTA and is a member of the Society of Cardiac Computed Tomography. Warrick is also a member of the Australian Atherosclerosis Society (AAS) and a participant on the panel of ‘interested parties’ developing a model of care and national registry for familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH). He has also developed a particular interest in diabetic-related risk of coronary artery disease, specifically relating to eating guidelines and lipid profiles.

Warrick is an accredited examiner for the RACP and is regularly involved with teaching medical students and junior doctors. He has worked with Hobart’s Menzies Institute for Medical Research on projects in an affiliate capacity and is recognized by the Medical School of the University of Tasmania with academic status.

For more than a year, Warrick has been a member of the Clinical Issues Committee of the Australian Heart Foundation, providing input into issues of significance for the management of heart patients.

In his free time Warrick enjoys travel and music with his wife, and surfing and playing the guitar with his children.

To say that Cardiac CT scanning has been a life saving experience for me is an understatement, if I had continued to put my head in the sand and not gone ahead with the scan who knows what may have happened.

Widespread public screening presents the opportunity to evaluate the state of an individual person’s arteries and make appropriate decisions which are particular and specific for that individual, and not rely on the population in which they sit statistically to decide their care.
