kardiologi, læren om hjertesygdomme. Kardiologi er et lægevidenskabeligt grenspeciale (se intern medicin (grenspecialer)), der omfatter medicinske hjerte- og kredsløbssygdomme.
Specialet blev udskilt fra intern medicin i 1950’erne og fik sit eget videnskabelige selskab (Dansk Cardiologisk Selskab) i 1960. Faget udøves overvejende af læger på sygehuse, men der findes også praktiserende speciallæger, i reglen overlæger med deltidspraksis.
