He spent the next 7 years training in pediatric medicine, pediatric cardiology, and finally pediatric electrophysiology, which is a branch of cardiology that deals specifically with heart rhythm disorders. Dr. Ayers finished three years of pediatric training at the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg, Florida. He then trained for three years in pediatric cardiology at IU/Riley Hospital for Children before spending one year at Vanderbilt University for sub-specialization in pediatric electrophysiology.

Each fall, a committee representing the MSDLT and LT School Foundation submits to the superintendent recommendations for selection. Those selected are then confirmed by the Board of Education. In early April, the newly selected honorees are invited to address the top seniors of the current graduating class at the annual Top 30 Banquet. Once an applicant is submitted he/she remains on the list, so there is no need to submit again.
