The Heart Research Centre has an established reputation in conducting research and in delivering training programs for health professionals working with cardiac patients, family members and others at high risk of cardiovascular disease, in a number of areas concerning heart disease.

This ensures that the advances gained through research are shared with the broader community. We are now a national leader in providing training programs and workshops for health professionals. The Centre has delivered more than 30 five day training programs and numerous workshops to well over 1000 health professionals who are responsible for the management of over 100,000 patients. Participants come from all areas of Australia and from overseas.
