At the Heart of the Matter

-Liesel Schmidt

In the 17 years that Dr. Christopher Malozzi has been practicing medicine, his career has followed a trajectory that he might never have imagined when he graduated from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2006. Three years of Internship and Residency in Internal Medicine at the University of South Alabama led to Malozzi’s selection to Chief Resident in Internal Medicine for an additional year before he entered the USA Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship. He completed the three-year Cardiology fellowship in 2013 and has since been a practicing cardiologist. He first spent two years in a private practice group along the Mississippi Gulf Coast before returning to an academic faculty position at USA in the Division of Cardiology in 2015 and is currently an Associate Professor of Internal Medicine/Cardiology and the Associate Program Director of the USA Cardiovascular Disease Fellowship.

It also provides a great mix of hands-on procedures and imaging tests that allows for variety in the day-to-day care of patients. Cardiology is also a field of innovation. There is constant research aiming to provide the best, state-of-the-art care for our patients. Something new is always on the horizon, so work can never get stagnant.”
