Samin Sharma reveals the secret behind 1,500 cases and $2.6 million per year

Following our earlier post in which he set the record straight that his $2.75 million salary places him at the top of the heap of New York City interventional cardiologists, Samin Sharma spoke with Mike Gibson, founder and editor of our sister site, ClinicalTrialResults.Org. You can watch the fascinating video and learn some of the secrets behind performing 1,500 cases a year. One tip: be prepared to wake up at 4:30 AM without the help of an alarm clock. In addition, Sharma’s caseload appears even more impressive when you learn that he’s only a part-time interventional cardiologist, working just three days a week. He spends the other two days a week helping Valentin Fuster run the Cardiovascular Institute at Mt. Sinai.
