It seems Dr. Gino Sedillo has been on the move his whole life. Literally, as a youngster and, as an adult, professionally.
Dr. Sedillo met a cardiologist at the hospital who became an inspiration. He had trained at the Texas Heart Institute “I wanted to be just like him,” he said. But another job transfer by his father took him to Monterrey, Mexico, where he eventually attended medical school at the Universidad de Monterrey.
After graduation, Dr. Sedillo began residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He was chosen to be chief resident, which helped him realize his penchant for teaching and also achieve his coveted goal of being accepted at the Texas Heart Institute. “This setting provided an excellent environment to learn from many brilliant, experienced cardiologists, and obtain a level of experience not possible at most other training programs,” Sedillo said. He was selected Chief Interventional Fellow his third year.
