Education & Training

Our teaching program involves undergraduate and postgraduate trainees, including residents & fellowships. We are one of three U of T Cardiology teaching units, attracting trainees in interventional cardiology, electrophysiology and echocardiography from the University of Toronto as well as from other prostigeous institutions, nationally and internationally

Resident Training

A number of different types of trainees rotate through the program. The cardiology rotation trainees include PGY1 residents, internal medicine, neurology and rehabilitation medicine. The Coronary Care Unit rotation trainees include residents from internal medicine, emergency medicine and anaesthesia.

The duration of the cardiology rotation ranges from 4-8 weeks, depending on the program. During each week, residents attend a half day clinic provided by the Department of Medicine. Each resident attends an outpatient clinic with a cardiologist and is exposed to coronary care cardiology and cardiology consultations.

There are dedicated teaching rounds for all residents which include bedside teaching rounds (Monday), cardiology research rounds (Tuesday), cardiology non-invasive teaching rounds (Wednesday), cardiology core lecture series (Thursday), cardiology pre-clinic teaching (Thursday); cardiology/surgical conference (Friday) and cardiology grand rounds (Friday). All residents prepare and lead one cardiology grand rounds per rotation.
