Biography

Dr William Wilson a consultant cardiologist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, specialising in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), adult congenital heart disease and structural cardiac interventions. 

Dr Wilson graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1999 and completed advanced cardiology training through the Royal Melbourne Hospital, with a focus on Interventional Cardiology. He has completed overseas fellowships at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and at the Toronto Congenital Cardiac Centre for Adults.

Dr Wilson is currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Melbourne with a focus on congenital heart disease, in particular outcomes post PCI for chronically occluded arteries and Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) patients with a systemic right ventricle.

Dr Wilson is actively involved in teaching of junior doctors, medical students and physician trainees and coordinates the cardiology teaching program for the FRACP lecture series.
