Affiliated with the Université de Montreal, the Montreal Heart Institute is a specialist cardiology centre. The institute is dedicated to care, research, teaching, prevention, and rehabilitation, as well as the evaluation of new technologies in cardiology.
In terms of prevention, heart disease and mortality have been curbed through the uptake of healthy lifestyles and the treatment of cholesterol and hypertension.
The teaching mission of the Heart Institute has meant that it has trained many specialists in Quebec, Canada, as well as elsewhere internationally.
