As a child, Dr. Heather Ross liked to bring home stray animals and nurse them back to health – the first indication she was destined for a career in medicine.
Today, Dr. Ross is a world-renowned cardiologist at UHN's Peter Munk Cardiac Centre.
In this episode of UHN's "Behind the Breakthrough" podcast, Dr. Ross talks about her pioneering work with artificial intelligence and how it can be used to predict heart failure, how she handles failure – including two rejections from medical school – and how a brush with death brought her closer to her patients than ever before.
