Cardiology is the branch of medicine pertaining to the heart.

The Division of Cardiology at St. Paul's Hospital, within the Heart Center organization, constitutes the majority of the faculty for British Columbia's premier tertiary and only quaternary cardiac program.  The resulting operational complexities have led to the development of an organizational matrix that includes both Divisional and Departmental structures as well as operationally based cardiac sciences program structures combining Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery.
