Cardiology Residency Training Program

At the University of Alberta, we offer a well-organized comprehensive training program in Adult Cardiology with specific objectives, and a large complement of training experiences designed to enable the trainee to meet these objectives. Our program is committed to the training of excellent cardiologists who are well equipped to meet the expectations of the contemporary cardiovascular specialist. We are committed to fostering the career goals of our graduates across the broad spectrum of opportunities available in the specialty: either in clinical cardiology or as clinician scientists. July 2009, all cardiac care transitioned to the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute, a world class health care institution. We therefore believe that we are uniquely positioned in Canada to offer trainees expert training across the full spectrum of cardiology using state of the art equipment.
