Our UHN programs and services are among the most advanced in the world. We have grouped our physicians, staff, services and resources into 10 medical programs to meet the needs of our patients and help us make the most of our resources.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international source for discovery, education and patient care.
Our 10 medical programs are spread across eight hospital sites – Princess Margaret, Toronto General, Toronto Rehab’s five sites, Toronto Western – as well as our education programs through the Michener Institute of Education at UHN.

Electrical disorders of the heart or heart rhythm disorders are a major and increasing cause of sudden cardiac death and disability in both young and aging populations. Electrical disorders can manifest across a wide spectrum of arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats) from tachycardia (abnormal acceleration of the heart) and atrial fibrillation (irregular rapid heart rhythm causing the atria to quiver, or fibrillate) to bradycardia (sudden slowing of the heart) and ventricular fibrillation (irregular electrical activity causing the heart chambers to be unsynchronized thus pumping little or no blood).
The Thomas I. (Toby) Hull Centre of Excellence in Heart Rhythm Disease includes a clinical program (The Cardiac Fibrillation Program), which is comprised of six distinct pillars: Ventricular tachycardia management, Atrial fibrillation management, Implantable devices, Arrhythmias in congenital heart disease, Heart failure cardiac resynchronization therapy, and Heritable arrhythmias. Each pillar includes a strong research component.
