OTTAWA, February 10, 2017 — The University of Ottawa Heart Institute (UOHI) is proud to welcome back Dr. Gary Small as the newest member of its Division of Cardiology. Dr. Small joins the Heart Institute from the Northern Ontario School of Medicine and the Thunder Bay Regional Hospital. There, he was the clinical lead for cardiology undergraduate and post-graduate education and he maintained a full clinical practice in clinical and interventional cardiology as well as cardiac oncology.
Originally from the United Kingdom, Dr. Small undertook his cardiology residency and interventional training in Scotland at Aberdeen University where he was appointed as a clinical lecturer in cardiology. There he furthered his post-doctorate studies in angiogenesis and enjoyed clinical investigator success in cardiac pacing and echocardiography research.
Dr. Small attended the Heart Institute from 2010 to 2012 as a cardiac imaging fellow where he was highly productive clinically and academically. He now returns to the Heart Institute as a clinical cardiologist with clinical and research interests in cardiac imaging with a particular focus on cardiac oncology. He also joins the educational team to add his experience and expertise as a clinical teacher.
Cardiology at the Heart Institute is a model of excellence in all realms of cardiovascular medicine. Its clinical programs serve among the largest patient volumes in Canada in electrophysiology, interventional cardiology and heart attack management, cardiac critical care, advanced heart failure and multimodality cardiac imaging. The cardiology residency program is the most sought-after training program in the country. Fellowship training programs attract fellows from six continents and across Canada. The Division conducts state-of-the-art research to understand disease and to develop the therapies of tomorrow.
