As an eager student of the University of Manitoba's Cardiac Sciences Program, you’ll acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to excel in the field of Cardiology.
Above all else, you’ll become an adept clinical cardiologist/clinician-scientist who will be agile to the changes of cardiology over the course of your career.
Incoming trainees will be exposed to clinical cardiology (CCU, wards, consults and clinics), noninvasive cardiac imaging (echocardiography, nuclear cardiology, cardiac CT and cardiac MRI), electrophysiology (pacemakers, defibrillators, EP studies and cardioversions) and interventional procedures (cardiac catheterization). The program further provides exposure to state-of-the-art 24/7 primary PCI infarction care.
The Cardiology Division is primarily located at St. Boniface General Hospital, where interaction with other members of the Department of Cardiac Sciences, including the sections of Cardiac Surgery, Cardiac Anesthesia and Cardiac ICU, promote a holistic approach to the cardiac patient.
All students have the ability to join the Cardiology Fellowship Program, Cardiac Surgery Residency Program and Cardiac Anesthesia Fellowship Program upon completion.
Complete residency details, including program curriculum, application requirements and selection criteria can be found on the Canadian Resident Matching Service website.
