Dr. Fraser Golding graduated from Queen’s Medical School in 1995. Following his paediatric residency and training in paediatric cardiology at The Hospital for Sick Children, Dr. Golding undertook additional subspecialty training in paediatric echocardiography.  During his subspecialty fellowship, he focused on advanced techniques in echocardiography including fetal imaging, contrast echocardiography, stress testing, and intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography.

In 2003, during his subspecialty fellowship, Dr. Golding was appointed as an Associate Staff Cardiologist in the Section of Echocardiography.  In 2004 he joined the Division of Cardiology at SickKids as a Clinician Specialist with a clinical, research and educational focus within the Section of Echocardiography and the Fetal Cardiac Program.
