Lowie Van Assche, MD
018-2019 Fellow Talk Blogger
Lowie is an interventional cardiology fellow at Northwestern University (Chicago, IL), where he also trained in cardiovascular and internal medicine. Born in Belgium, Lowie studied medicine at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands and developed a passion for research early on. He did a postdoctoral research fellowship at Duke University studying mechanisms of acute myocardial infarction. Lowie has a deep love for cardiology, physiology, and procedures, which made interventional cardiology “a very straightforward” career choice, he says. Also, he feels that it is important for both trainees and practicing cardiologists today to be not only be academically productive, but also have a presence on social media. Lowie is looking forward to blogging for Fellow Talk and sharing his experiences with his peers. You can follow him on Twitter @lowieva.
