More about Dr. Sylvia S Swilley

I was born and raised in Virginia and graduated from Virginia Tech with a major in biology. I made the decision to become a physician when I was eight years old after watching an episode of the television show Ben Casey. Many of you are too young to remember Dr. Casey. He preceded ER, Grey's Anatomy and even Dr. Marcus Welby. By the time I entered medical school, I had already decided to become a pediatrician, but I didn't choose my subspecialty, pediatric cardiology, until the end of my pediatric residency at UCLA. During some training at a hospital in Nairobi, Kenya, I met a coworker whose niece had congenital heart disease. It was my involvement in bringing that child to the U.S. for open-heart surgery that sparked my interest in pediatric cardiology.
