Dr Louisa O'Neill is an accomplished cardiologist with a strong academic background and extensive training in both clinical and research aspects of cardiology. Her educational journey started at University College Dublin, where she pursued medicine and earned her medical degree in 2008. She then proceeded to undergo comprehensive training in general medicine and specialized in cardiology in Ireland.

Following her specialization, Dr O'Neill delved into research through a prestigious British Heart Foundation fellowship at King’s College London and St. Thomas’ Hospital in London. Her Ph.D. work focused on studying arrhythmia mechanisms in patients with congenital heart disease, demonstrating her dedication to understanding cardiac conditions at a fundamental level.

During her research tenure, Dr O'Neill simultaneously honed her clinical skills, specifically in cardiac electrophysiology and cardiac MRI. Her expertise in cardiovascular magnetic resonance was acknowledged with a Level 3 certification from the Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance. Additionally, her contributions to the European Society of Cardiology's textbook on cardiovascular imaging highlight her significant contributions to the field.

Subsequently, she pursued further training at Sint Jan Hospital in Belgium, where she expanded her clinical and research expertise, particularly focusing on novel ablation techniques, notably in the realm of atrial fibrillation. This additional experience likely enriched her understanding of advanced treatment methodologies for cardiac arrhythmias.

Dr O'Neill's multifaceted training and contributions in both clinical practice and research showcase her commitment to advancing cardiovascular medicine, particularly in arrhythmia mechanisms and treatment strategies.
