Dr Buchholz completed training in all aspects of general cardiology including cardiac MRI at Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney before undertaking fellowship sub-speciality training in advanced echocardiography techniques with Prof Michael Feneley at St Vincent’s Hospital and St Vincent’s Clinic, Sydney.
