Our vision is to be among the top 10 public cardiovascular programs in the country by providing research-driven patient care and applying the latest evidence and technology. Discoveries made by our physicians and scientists have provided new diagnostic tools, therapies and better understanding of cardiovascular disease. We maintain a strong, consistent record of publications in the nation’s foremost peer-reviewed medical journals. We are also committed to educating physicians and scientists in training and to disseminating knowledge to local communities about advances and emerging issues in cardiovascular disease. The Gill Heart Institute regards diversity and inclusivity of physicians and staff in the workforce as a top priority and key underpining for both our clinical practice and research portfolio.
