Amanda Ryan

Dr. Amanda Ryan grew up in a small town in central IL where going to a cardiologist was a three hour adventure. Motivated by her grandfather's course that started with an MI at age 36 and her aunt dying at 42 awaiting a heart transplant, she embarked on a career path to cardiology. She graduated magna cum laude with a major in biology from a small private liberal arts college outside of Chicago called North Central College. Osteopathic medical school at KCUMB in Kansas City, MO, was the next amazing step in her journey with top 10% of class and several awards/honors from academics and volunteer activities. An internal medicine residency with a chief resident year followed at St. Louis University in St. Louis, MO. Cardiology and Interventional Cardiology fellowship were completed through Nova Southeastern Medical School in Largo, FL. She was exposed to a large private group with strong academics as well, procedures included extensive peripheral arterial and venous disease treatment. Private practice in Titusville, FL for 6 years included building our own outpatient catherization lab with large volume of peripheral arterial and venous procedures. Coming to New Mexico was an exciting opportunity to build a program in Carlsbad, NM, with a new cardiac catheterization lab plus leadership and teaching roles with medical students and residents.
