He is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and Indiana University School of Medicine His post graduate training included an internship and residency in pediatrics at Indiana University/James Whitcomb Riley Hospital for Children and a pediatric cardiology fellowship at the University of Michigan/C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. He also has a Master’s Degree from the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Cardiology and the Heart Rhythm Society.
Dr. Scott's specific area of expertise is cardiac electrophysiology (arrhythmias) and he has a special interest in prevention of sudden cardiac death. He established a comprehensive program for the management of children with arrhythmias upon his arrival and has directed that program since its inception.
Dr. Scott’s research interests are directed at advancing non-invasive technology to diagnose and manage children with congenital and acquired heart disease. He has authored many peer reviewed publications and book chapters. He helped oversee a collaborative grant from the State of Texas to evaluate the feasibility of screening school age children for unrecognized heart disease.
