A wide variety of research opportunities exists in clinical and basic science including clinical trials, mechanistic studies, integrated research with biomarkers and imaging, proteomics and genomics. Educational opportunities include a heart failure fellowship program and one of the leading cardiology training programs in Canada.

The University of Ottawa Heart Institute is a large tertiary academic centre providing cardiovascular care to Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec.
