Changing heart health education.
Texas Heart Institute’s (THI) commitment to education sets it apart from other major cardiovascular centers. The Institute’s educational activities include postdoctoral and allied training programs, seminars, symposia, grand rounds, scientific publications and public education outreach.
The Texas Heart Institute fellowships honor the legacy of Dr. Denton A. Cooley by supporting THI today under the leadership of individuals mentored by its great founders.
THI plays a vital role in providing continuing education to cardiovascular physicians and other specialists around the world.
Denton A. Cooley, MD, recognized that the quality of patient care could be augmented by highly trained and competent perfusion technologists, and he started the Texas Heart Institute School of Perfusion Technology on December 1, 1971. Today, the school continues to attract bright college graduates interested in an exhilarating career in the medical field.
