International fellows come to learn the ‘PMCC Way’
Dr. Diego Delgado and Dr. Carolina Alba

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Dr. Diego Delgado and Dr. Carolina Alba, cardiologists from Argentina, were two of the fellows from around the globe hoping to bring PMCC teaching back to their home institutions.

Hundreds of national and international physicians apply each year to train with Peter Munk Cardiac Centre specialists in a unique program

At the Peter Munk Cardiac Centre (PMCC), the world's best and brightest come together for a common cause: to save lives.

Walking through the halls of the PMCC, it's not uncommon to encounter groups of international fellows intently discussing a complex case with staff physicians. These fellows hail from all over the globe – Asia, South America, the U.S., Europe, Africa – bringing knowledge with them and then taking what they've learned back to their home countries. ​

Each year, hundreds of national and international physicians apply to obtain postcertification training with experienced specialists at the PMCC in areas such as: adult congenital heart disease, cardiovascular surgery, vascular surgery and heart failure and transplantation. While they learn, the fellows provide much-needed manpower to help PMCC staff with the day-to-day work of treating patients.
